Rumors that Baby #2 was a boy had been spreading for a while, but Jessica covered her mouth like she made such a mess of things when she recently told Jimmy Kimmel, "I never knew that a wiener could actually make me so nauseous." Oops! Right afterward, she said, "Well I guess I just told the world that I’m having a boy! I can't believe I just did that, that was not planned. ... I just did it so crude, I feel awful!"
However, a source close to the Simpson family told RadarOnline, "Jessica’s ‘slip-up’ was a rehearsed line, something she waited to do until the time was right for her. She knew that she would be taping interviews to promote Fashion Star, so the timing couldn’t be more perfect.” According to this source, she purposely waited until the night of Wednesday, March 6 to make the gender reveal, putting it nice and close to the Friday premiere of Fashion Star. “She thought up a few ideas with [her fiance] Eric and they felt the wiener gag would seem the most harmless and less obvious, so she went with that.”
