Jessica Simpson Totally Pregnant, Totally Bare in Elle (photos!)

Jessica Simpson bulging belly, totally bare, is featured on the cover of Elle magazine, in what has become a rite of passage for pregnant celebrities. Move over Demi… and Cindy… and Christina… and Britney… and Miranda, and…

The striking photos, they’re always striking when the model is preggers, show her in the classic pose One arm covers her breasts and the hand of her other arm is just under her belly.

Simpson, 31, who has already revealed she’s having a girl, said she and her NFL quarterback fiancé Eric Johnson, have a little competition going over her daughter’s personality.

“I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” she told the magazine. “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 says she’s reverted to childhood to satisfy her pregnancy cravings. “I had a buttered Pop Tart this morning,” she said in an interview last month. “I’m eating a lot of stuff that I ate in my childhood.”

“Kraft Mac n’ Cheese, Pop Tarts, Cap’n Crunch. Everything’s filled with sugar,” she added. And, she looks it.

‘I’m like, ‘Yeah, I can do it. We’ll worry about the rest afterwards,’ she said.

Simpson will have plenty of help. She’s slated to reap another $4 million from cutting a deal with Weight Watchers to chronicle her post-baby birth weight loss.

She follows such celebrities as Jennifer Hudson, who has lost 80 pounds, and Kirstie Alley who both became weight loss success stories on diet plans.

Simpson recently told People that she is handling her pregnancy well.

“I feel great, I honestly do. Pregnancy is a friend of mine, so everything has been running smoothly,” she said.

“So far, so good – no morning sickness. I feel great. I’m tired, but you know, I’m making a baby here!”
