Jessica Simpson strips off and and bares her baby bump on the cover of Elle magazine\’s April 2012 issue as photographed byÂ Carter Smith and styled by Joe Zee.Â Inside Jessica reveals that she’s expecting a baby girl and from the looks of recent photos, she is surely due to give birth any minute but apparently she’s only 7.5 months along, is this the longest pregnancy ever?
Inside Jess shared:
On her body subconsciously telling her she was pregnant: “We were goin\’ to have an all-day drinking binge,” Simpson says, not shy about saying so. “Gonna ride our bikes, hang out&do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?”
On hopes for her daughter\’s sense of style: “AhÂ swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” she blurts out, her Dallas accent swooping back in this moment of heightened anxiety. “Eric is so athletic. We\’re gonna have this ath-a-leticÂ girl and I won\’t even be able to take her shopping.”
On taking tabloid brutality in stride: “I\’m still standin\’,” she drawls. “I grew up very strong! You know, my father used to be an adolescent therapist. I remember sitting at his office, watching the girls walkin\’ in and out. Kids doin\’ coke at 16&heroin. Pregnant at 14. I could see what I didn\’t want to be.”
Hairstylist Robert Vetica used Moroccanoil products (Simpson\’s favorite) to create ethereal, voluminous waves, as makeup artist Pati Dubroff emphasized Simpson\’s pregnancy glow with champagne eye shadow and liquid black eyeliner.
