Singer and fashion mogul Jessica Simpsons poses naked, showing off her gorgeous baby bump, on the cover of this month's Elle. The star says in her interview to the magazine that she is anxious to welcome her baby girl in the world this spring.
Joking during a telephonic interview with a media house, the singer said she couldn’t wait to pose for the cover of Elle at 170 pounds. "Normally I'm hoping to be 107 pounds and I don't eat, but I ate cheesecake before we shot," Simpson said.
The shot took place behind closed doors with fiancéand just a few close friends allowed on the set. Simpson said in the telephonic interview that she was as calm as possible during the whole time and the only time she felt a pang of nervousness was the night before the magazine hit newsstands.
"Normally, I'm so shy. I'm not the person you see photographed in a bikini on a beach. But for some reason, being pregnant, it's so easy for me. I feel so comfortable in my skin," Simpson said, adding that she’s glad that most of the people received her pregnant pose positively.
Elle Macpherson, owner of Elle magazine, said that she thought the singer was looking simply beautiful. "All I see is a beautiful woman, pregnant. How cool. It's a celebration of motherhood -- a celebration of pregnancy, really,” said Macpherson.
Elle Macpherson, who herself posed for the Got Milk campaign while 9 months pregnant with pretty much all the clothes on, also said she makes “zero judgment” about women wanting to make the whole world see their maternity gear. "It's a personal choice," she said. "Whatever works for you."
Simpson said that unlike many people who get more and more afraid as the final hours approach, she was more anxious “for my water to break, for the day I get to go to the hospital and push. I figure if all these women all around the world can do it, I can do it."
Jessica, who was recently spotted buying pink dress at a posh shopping mall, said yes to the speculations of a baby girl. When asked about the names the couple will be choosing from, Simpsons said while they were sure of it, "it's nothing shocking and nothing you'll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they'll know … why.”
