Ashlee feels a failure

Ashlee Simpson was one of the first to know about her sister Jessica’s pregnancy and she was one of the first to congratulate her.

But while she’s all smiles on the surface, Now can reveal she’s wracked with jealousy underneath.

A source says: ‘She thinks Jess has everything while she’s struggling.’

Ashlee split with husband Pete Wentz in February 2011 after three years of marriage.

Meanwhile, Jessica’s pregnant with her second child just seven months after the birth of her daughter Maxwell.

Our source adds: ‘Ashlee’s pleased about her sister’s news, but she always thought she’d be the one happily married with kids and Jess’s pregnancy has re-enforced her feelings of failure.’
