As I’m sure you’ve already seen, pregnant mama-to-be Jessica Simpson pulled a Demi Moore in this month’s issue of ELLE magazine and confirmed that she and fiancé Eric Johnson are expecting a baby girl.
I’ll say this: while Jess looks absolutely gorgeous with that big bump of hers, I’m kind of tired of seeing pregnant celebrities posing in the buff. When Demi did it, her cover was hot, shocking and of course had tongues wagging for weeks. I think somewhere in the past twenty years Britney Spears’ and Mariah Carey’s covers killed it to the point of no return.
So of course when I saw Jessica’s photo this morning, I was like, eh. Moving on. In the ELLE interview she does however discuss what types of names she’s considering for her baby girl and how she’ll be giving birth to a 10-pound butterball. Here’s a snippet via Celebitchy.com:
“We’re sure,” Simpson said of the choice without revealing the name. “We’re embroidering it on things.”
She says the name is “nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary… When people hear it, they’ll know . . . why.”
And it won’t be “Chicken of the Sea” after her most famous line from “Newlyweds.” According to Elle, Simpson’s moved beyond her days as a reality TV ditz to a “billion-dollar-per-year business” with her Jessica Simpson Collection, as well as star of NBC’s “Fashion Star.” The mag says TV exec Ben Silverman is developing a sitcom for her.
She also reveals that she initially found it difficult to wrap her head around abstaining from top-shelf whiskey while pregnant. “Givin’ up my Scotch? My Macallan 18? That was hard for me! . . . Though now . . . being pregnant. You crave other things. A big thing of water sounds great!”
Jessica had a hard time giving up booze during her pregnancy? I never knew she was such a Snooki! Anyway, check out our top ten baby name suggestions for Jess and let us know if we’ve missed any.
