Jessica Simpson celebrates at baby shower with celebrity friends
Jessica Simpson is almost ready to welcome her baby girl but first the singer and fashion mogul gathered with her celebrity friends for a baby shower on March 18.
Guests at the Los Angeles party included Simpson's sister Ashlee Simpson, actress Jessica Alba and "Grey's Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo, according to Us Weekly.
Alba reportedly brought her 7-month-old daughter Haven while Ashlee Simpson brought her 3-year-old son Bronx.
During a recent interview, Simpson joked that she is ready to carry her daughter, "in my arms and not my belly."
Simpson appeared nude on Elle magazine's April cover, which appears to be an homage to Demi Moore's famous 1991 Vanity Fair picture (see photos of female celebrities who have posed nude and pregnant).
When asked about her cover shoot, Simpson said that it was her idea to pose nude.
Jessica Simpson rose to fame with the MTV show "Newlyweds," which aired between 2003 and 2005 and starred her then-husband Nicky Lachey, whose current wife, Vanessa, is also pregnant.
Since the series, Jessica Simpson has also become known for her $1 billion fashion empire. She and fellow fashion designers Nicole Richie and John Varvatos are mentors on the NBC show, "Fashion Star," which airs on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET. Supermodel Elle Macpherson is the host.
"Fashion Star" sees contestants competing to become the next big fashion designer. The judges are buyers from major retailers such as H&M and Macy's.
