Jessica Simpson Is Having A Girl

Jessica Simpson is the cover girl for the upcoming issue of Elle, and not only is she naked on the cover, but she confirms on the inside that she’s having a girl.

“I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” Simpson tells Elle in their April issue.  “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!”

Jessica also tells Elle that they’ve all ready chosen a name, and that it’s an unconventional one.  “It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they’ll know … why.”

Simpson explains that she had a feeling she was pregnant before going out drinking cocktails with her friends one day.  That feeling led her to taking a pregnancy test, and discovering that she was.  In case you were wondering she told People in an earlier interview that the hardest thing for her to give up was her drinking.   “I’m a free-spirited girl, but giving up my scotch? My Macallan 18? That was hard for me! Though now that doesn’t even sound good, being pregnant. You crave other things. A big thing of water sounds great!”

The latest issue of Elle hits newsstands on March 20th.
