Jessica Simpson is the latest pregnant celeb to pose naked on a magazine cover. The pop star pulled a Demi Moore (and Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears and Mariah Carey) by appearing nude on the cover of this month’s ELLE.

In the magazine’s cover story, she reveals that she and fiance Eric Johnson are having a girl. Simpson has high hopes that her daughter follows in her footsteps and be obsessed with fashion and shopping, but worries she’ll take after her daddy instead.

"Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” Simpson fretted in her Southern drawl. “Eric is so athletic. We're gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won't even be able to take her shopping."

The singer also told ELLE that she plans to give her child a “nontraditional” name. "It's nothing shocking and nothing you'll have to add to the dictionary," Simpson said. "Still, when people hear it, they'll know ... why."

Simpson has not announced her due date, but is expected to give birth this spring. A big week in baby news, her ex-husband Nick Lachey announced earlier this week that he will be a first-time dad with wife Vanessa Minnillo.
