Yes, Jessica Simpson is still pregnant — we'll get that out of the way right from the top. However, the mom-to-be is officially in the nesting phase, staying out of the spotlight while she waits for the arrival of her first child, and passing the time by updating her website with a collection of photos and a video of her star-studded baby shower.
Along with a handful of photos from the elaborate event, which took place in Los Angeles on March 18 and was organized by celeb event planner Mindy Weiss, the "Fashion Star" mentor shared a nearly two-minute video of the splashy celebration. While the song "I Can't Give You Anything but Love, Baby" plays, you see footage of the mom-to-be — dressed in a blue, snakeskin dress —hanging with her celebrity friends, including Jessica Alba, who brought daughter Haven, and her sister Ashlee Simpson. "Grey's Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo was also on the guest list. The event space was decorated in pink and she certainly collected a lot of gifts in the same hue. With her fiancé, ex-NFL player Eric Johnson, by her side, Simpson opened gift boxes containing floral dresses, a baby bathing suit, and a pair of pink cowboy boots.
And perhaps confirming the rumors that circulated a few months back, the video ends with the camera panning from Simpson and Johnson overhead to the letter "M" that is displayed the wall. In March, just days before the shower, In Touch reported that the baby will be named Maxwell, which is Johnson's middle name and his grandmother's surname, and go by Maxi. Simpson wasn't as forthcoming with info when talking baby names with Elle, saying only: "It's nothing shocking and nothing you'll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it they'll know … why."
In photos Simpson included of the shower, she poses with Johnson, her mother, and her sister's son Bronx. "Creating a family is the best thing I've done in my life," she captioned one photo. The one with her mom read: "I really hope I can be half as good a mom as my mom has been to me."
According to Us Weekly, Baby Johnson will make her arrival "within the next few weeks" — and it sounds like she'll be a big little girl. Simpson told Elle that doctors estimated her baby's birth weight to be approximately 10 pounds, but that doesn't have her worried. "I figure if all these women all around the world can do it, I can do it," she told Elle. "[The baby] is in the 90th percentile of weight right now, so she's a big un. She's going to be a very big baby, but I guess that's what I get for letting a baller knock me up."
