As AOL Music reported just last month (Feb. 2011), Jessica Simpson was spotted buying pink gear at a posh baby boutique in Los Angeles -- fueling rumors she was having a girl. Well, speculate no more! Simpson spills in the new issue of Elle Magazine that she will, in fact, be welcoming a little lady when she gives birth in the upcoming weeks.
But Jess' gender revelation isn't the most shocking thing about her Elle cover story. That honor goes to the cover itself, which features a naked Simpson posing in a similar fashion to Demi Moore's now-infamous Vanity Fair cover.
The always candid star opened up in the article about impending motherhood and even gave details about the "nontraditional" name she and her fiancé, Eric Johnson, had decided upon for their little one. "It's nothing shocking and nothing you'll have to add to the dictionary," explained Jessica. "Still, when people hear it, they'll know ... why."
As she counts down the days until her baby arrives, Jessica is looking forward to enjoying time with her new little one ... and maybe a stiff drink post-birth. "Givin' up my Scotch? My Macallan 18? That was hard for me!" admits Jess. "Though now, being pregnant, you crave other things. A big thing of water sounds great!"
