Speculation that Jessica is pregnant has enveloped her for years, but recently it seemed like there was some truth to the rumor, as she was seen sporting what appeared to be a baby bump multiple times. Her friends even started talking about what kind of mom she would be, something you normally wouldn't do unless someone was pregnant. And, of course, In Style magazine's editor-in-chief even tweeted about Jessica's "impending motherhood" in October.

According to Joey, Justin and Jessica's friends and family have known about the pregnancy for months. The couple, however, has not publicly confirmed the pregnancy.

Regardless, Joey has no doubts that his friends will be able to handle the roller coaster that is parenthood. "Jessica is awesome, and Justin is a kid at heart," he adds. "[They'll have] fun."
