She’s no Demi Moore, but Jessica Simpson is certainly trying to be. The singer turned fashion designer graces this month’s cover of Elle magazine, not only nude, but also in an identical pose to Moore’s famed 1991 Vanity Fair cover. Her very large baby bump, however, isn’t the only thing the Fashion Star mentor revealed: she and fiancé Eric Johnson will be having a girl, something that Simpson predicted to People in December.
“I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” Simpson told Elle. “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”
It’s worth mentioning that Simpson’s cover debut comes at an oddly convenient time given that ex-husband Nick Lachey made waves on Monday after announcing that he and wife Vanessa Lachey (formerly Minillo) are also expecting.
