Pregnant Jessica Simpson is reportedly having a difficult time planning her new arrival’s baby shower because her recently separated parents refuse to be in the same room together.
Her mother Tina Simpson entered divorce documents dated September 24, 2012 in McLennan County, Texas to annul her 34-year marriage to Joe Simpson.
Jessica is currently expecting her second child with fiancé Eric Johnson and is planning a party to celebrate the new arrival.
Her warring parents are apparently not making the process easy.
“Jessica’s got a big problem on her hands. She wants Joe and Tina to come to her baby shower, but they are kicking up a fuss because they don’t want to see each other,” a source told Radar Online.
“She’s made all the arrangements for an elaborate party, which she spent a lot of time doing, but now her mum and dad are creating an unnecessary problem.”
It is said Jessica has had a tense relationship with her father of late.
Regardless of the strain, she still wants her family to be together on this special occasion.
“Despite her differences with Joe, she still invited him to the baby shower because she wanted him to be part of the celebration,” the insider continued.
“Jessica naturally wants Tina there, who she has grown closer to, since supporting her through the messy divorce.
“But they’ve both said they don’t want to see each other and Jessica’s been left with a conundrum. Does she invite only one of them, or tell both of them not to come? She’s scratching her head at the moment.”
