Looks like pregnancy is turning out to be the ultimate bonding experience for Jessica Simpson and longtime BFF CaCee Cobb. The moms-to-be looked closer than ever as they showed off their matching baby bumps — and taste in maternity wear — in a new picture posted to Cobb's Facebook on Monday, April 1.
The sweet snapshot finds the pregnant pals cradling their growing bellies and standing side-by-side in what appears to be someone's home. With their long hair and similarly styled outfits, they seem almost like they could be sisters. Simpson, 32 — expecting her second child with fiance Eric Johnson — has on a form-fitting, long-sleeved black dress. Her former assistant Cobb, meanwhile, is wearing a form-fitting, long-sleeved animal-print dress (much like the wild frock her pal donned for an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno earlier this year).
The Fashion Star mentor, mom to 11-month-old Maxwell, confirmed that she was expecting on Christmas Day last year, a few weeks after Us Weekly first revealed her happy news. One month later, Cobb announced that she too was expecting a baby — her first — with new husband Donald Faison. (She and the Scrubs star married at Zach Braff's home in California on Dec. 15, 2012.)
"I'm just excited for CaCee," Faison told Us Weekly of his wife's pregnancy. "She's probably the most loving person I've ever met in my life. And so for her to have a baby that she can love and, you know, raise — that we can raise together, and she can influence and teach and stuff like that, it just, I know that it'll be a really good human being when it's older." (This will be Faison's fifth child; the actor is already dad to four kids from previous relationships, including three with ex-wife Lisa Askey.)
One thing is for sure: Cobb and Faison's little bundle of joy already has a built-in best friend in Simpson's baby-boy-to-be. The singer doesn't plan on having more kids, but as her fiance joked to Ryan Seacrest last month, "Accidents do happen!"
"I was extremely shocked," Simpson told Jay Leno in January of her surprise second pregnancy. "Because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes, trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica. You know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened, all over again!"
