Rumor and speculation came to a halt over the Christmas holiday as Jessica Simpson confirmed that she and fiancee Eric Johnson are expecting their second child.

Much like the way she announced the news that she was expecting her first child Maxwell, Simpson took to Twitter - this time posting a picture of Maxwell playing on the beach near the words "Big Sis" written in the sand.

The Twitter post puts to rest the rumors that Simpson and Johnson were expecting their second child - on the heels of giving birth in May of this past year.
