Jessica Simpson posed pregnant and naked on the cover of Elle magazine's April issue. It was a bold move for the blonde bombshell who looks surely ready to pop. She did not reveal her due date (though, by the looks of it, it has to be soon), but she did reveal the baby's gender.

Jessica Simpson will give birth to a baby girl! She and fiancé Eric Johnson are thrilled about the coming arrival. But, Simpson is worried about what fashion choices her daughter may make. I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins! said the 31-year-old. Eric is so athletic--we're gonna have this athletic girl and I won't even be able to take her shopping, 'cause all she's gonna want is sports bras and Nikes!

The Fashion Star mentor's due date is some time this spring, though she has not confirmed a specific date to the media. She did confirm to Elle that she will give her baby girl a nontraditional name.

It's nothing shocking and nothing you'll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they'll know...why, Simpson told the fashion magazine.

In the April issue, Simpson laments about giving up her scotch. 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!

The heavily pregnant singer and fashion mogul said that she is looking forward to the premiere of her new NBC show Fashion Star on March 13 and is excited to see her thinner frame.

I wasn't pregnant when we shot it. It will be amazing to see myself with a waistline, the 31-year-old previously told Us Weekly. I'll be like a big blob sitting on the couch watching myself thin.

Simpson will mentor 14 contestants alongside Nicole Richie, John Varvatos and Elle Macpherson in developing their fashion collections.

Being pregnant has also inspired Jessica Simpson to further develop her own line with a maternity collection. Simpson wants to add the maternity line to the Jessica Simpson Collection, which currently includes clothing, handbags and shoes.

The point of launching a maternity line, for me, is to do something different, Simpson explained. I'm not buying any maternity clothes. I'm wearing all clothes that come in bigger sizes. I really want to make a maternity line that's comfortable, but really stylish for people, because I believe that we all deserve to feel good and look good.

Jessica Simpson's naked cover is reminiscent of Demi Moore's first naked and pregnant cover of August 1991 Vanity Fair. Since then, a multitude of celebrities have mimicked the pose including Jessica Simpson, Miranda Kerr, Cindy Crawford, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.
