Jessica Simpson Eric Johnson  dress pregnant heels

After months of denial that she's expecting her first child with fiancé Eric Johnson, Jessica Simpson is finally free to show off her growing baby belly!

The happy couple stepped out to attend the 25th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York City -- Jess rakes in nearly $1 billion from her shoe and accessory lines alone -- and the mommy-to-be showed off her massive bump in a short red dress and purple pumps.

Simpson was gearing up to plan her wedding to the former NFL player, they wanted 11/11/11, but now that she's preg the entire event has taken a back seat.

The singer recently confessed to Access Hollywood, "We were going to throw something together, but Id rather put more time in it and be able to really enjoy the day. When youre pregnant, your hormones go crazy. I dont want to be super stressed out and end up being a bridezilla. So, Ill wait until after."
