“We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received,” a statement on their website said. “This has been the greatest experience of our lives.”

Simpson's growing belly has been garnering increased attention over the past few months. Last month, Simpson dispelled online conspiracy theories that she had already given birth, tweeting: "To everyone who keeps congratulating me on the birth of my baby girl...I'm still pregnant!!" she wrote. "Don't believe what you read ladies and gents."

This is the first child for the couple, who have been dating since summer 2010, and got engaged in November 2010.
