We all knew it was coming, and now it’s official: Jessica Simpson is adding a maternity clothing line to her billion dollar fashion empire. Simpson’s company partnered with Destination Maternity to make the line available in more than 700 stores nationwide, including Motherhood Maternity and Macy’s. Three preview outfits were released today, and it looks pretty consistent with Simpson’s general aesthetic and price point (everything is under $100).

Congratulations to Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson, who welcomed baby girl Maxwell Drew into the world today! Congratulations are also (begrudgingly) due to Julie Gerstein, who bet me $10 that the baby would be under 10 pounds.
