Did Jessica Simpson walk down the aisle for two? The reportedly pregnant star was the maid of honor at her best friend CaCee Cobb's wedding to Donald Faison on Saturday, and in official photos just released by Life & Style, Simpson is strategically holding her red bouquet in front of her belly. Although she's covering a potential bump, she's certainly not hiding her joy for the bride, whom she has been close with since the two were just little girls in Texas. Cobb is even the godmother of Simpson's daughter Maxwell Drew, who was born in May.
In aerial photos of the wedding — which took place at the home of Faison's former "Scrubs" co-star and close friend, Zach Braff — the outline of Simpson's stomach could be seen beneath her form-fitting black beaded gown (the bridesmaids were reportedly all allowed to wear whatever they liked for the wedding).
According to Life & Style, guests at the Cobb-Faison nuptials enjoyed a menu inspired by the bride's Southern roots and washed down mini hamburgers, fried chicken, collard greens, and sweet potato pie with cocktails like pear-and-chili mint juleps. And the dessert was just as mouth-watering: butterscotch pudding, red velvet mini-cakes, and apple pie.
The wedding also brought together the entire Simpson family, who have been at odds since Jessica's parents, Joe and Tina Simpson, announced their separation in late October after 35 years of marriage. The split — and the reports that Joe had been cheating on his wife with a much-younger man — has reportedly strained the relationship between father and daughter. But the two seemed to put aside their differences for the special day. In another aerial shot from Braff's backyard, Joe and Jessica are standing next to each other and appear to be talking. And the patriarch even made a special toast to the new couple, a guest tells Life & Style. "[Joe] is an amazing speaker and brought everyone to tears."
