Although the Chinese calendar states that 2012 is the year of the dragon, celebrities definitely have a different take. This year is the year of the babies for them!
Along with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi who finally confirmed that she is indeed pregnant, Elizabeth Berkley, Kristen Cavallari, Uma Thurman, Vanessa Minnillo and Jessica Simpson are all expecting. Congratulations ladies!
Jessica Simpson, however, is the first of the 2012 pregnant-chick-clan to flaunt her baby bump on the cover of a magazine. Simpson posed for Elle in the nude, wearing nothing but earrings and some natural make-up.
Simpson is not the first celebrity to show off her pregnant body. Demi Moore was one of the first followed by celebs like Britney Spears, Monica Bellucci and Cindy Crawford.
During the interview with Elle magazine, Simpson also revealed some exciting news, she and fiance Eric Johnson are expecting a girl!
Jess is thrilled to be having a girl but is hoping that her daughter develops a passion for fashion like her mom.
Jess said to Elle, “I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” Jess declared. She added that she’s afraid fiance Eric Johnson’s ardor for sports will be passed down to their daughter: “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”
So what is the couple planning on naming their baby girl? They have decided but they are not sharing the name until their daughter is born.
“It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they’ll know … why,” Jess says.
Maybe Jessica junior? No matter what, we’re sure the baby is going to be adorable.
Congrats Jess and Eric!
