Hot Topics: Pregnant Jessica Simpson goes au naturale for ELLE

Jessica Simpson is baring all for ELLE – posing nude on the magazine’s April cover and confirming the sex of her baby.

The pregnant star told the magazine she and fiance Eric Johnson are expecting a baby girl.

“I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” said the singer, who also designs an eponymous fashion line and will appear as a mentor on TV’s “Fashion Star.”

“Eric is so athletic – we’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping,” she added.

The couple has decided on a name for their little one, Simpson also revealed.

“We’re sure,” she said of the moniker. “We’re embroidering it on things. It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. When people hear it, they’ll know why.”

On Wednesday, Simpson sent a tweet about her cover’s debut:

“My Elle cover comes out today!! I’m a lil nervous but I’ve never felt more beautiful or empowered. I hope you like it!!!”

The April issue of ELLE will hit newsstands on March 20.

What SheSays: First, having an athletic daughter is just as much a gift as having one who loves to shop. We should tell our little girls to be who they are, not what we’d like to have.

Second, kudos to Jessica for feeling confident enough in her pregnant body to pose nude, but what would be more empowering to women – pregnant or not – would be less Photoshopping and airbrushing.
