With her due date creeping ever closer, mom-to-be Jessica Simpson admits she’s feeling a few childbirth jitters.
The singer tells USA Today that she’s anxious “for my water to break, for the day I get to go to the hospital and push. I’m more anxious than afraid. I have not been afraid the whole time. I figure if all these women all around the world can do it, I can do it.”
Her baby girl – she recently confirmed the gender – is expected to weigh around 10lbs when she arrives.
“She’s in the 90th percentile of weight right now, so she’s a big un. She’s going to be a very big baby, but I guess that’s what I get for letting a baller knock me up,” jokes Jessica, who is engaged to football pro Eric Johnson.
The Fashion Star mentor got everyone talking earlier this week when she showed off her beautiful belly on the cover of Elle magazine. Jessica says she had no second thoughts about baring her bump:
“I wasn’t nervous at all,” she insists. “Normally, I’m so shy. I’m not the person you see photographed in a bikini on a beach. But for some reason, being pregnant, it’s so easy for me. I feel so comfortable in my skin…. I’m glad people are reacting positively. It’s just really a celebratory moment for me.”
