The blonde only gave birth to her first daughter seven months ago, but is already expecting the pitter patter of another pair of tiny feet.

Rumours have been rife that Jessica is set to be a mum again after US Weekly broke the news back at the end of November.

A source told them: "It definitely wasn't planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again."

The surprise baby-to-be is the second child for the singer and Fashion Star mentor, 32, and fiance Eric Johnson.

The pair, who have been engaged for two years, gave birth to their first baby on May 1 this year.

Shortly after giving birth, Jessica was named the face of slimming brand Weight Watchers, and had been working hard with trainer Hayley Pasternak to lose some of the 60lbs she gained during her first pregnancy.
