With Jessica Simpson not far from her due date, the singer’s friends and family gathered over the weekend to celebrate her impending motherhood.
Simpson celebrated on Sunday with other famous mamas like “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo, Jessica Alba and little sister Ashlee, People reported. The party was held in Los Angeles and organized by celebrity party planner Mindy Weiss. “Jessica looked pretty and very happy,” an insider told the magazine. Another source added, “She’s so excited to be a mom. She can’t wait to meet her little girl.”
Simpson recently revealed she and her fiancé, Eric Johnson, are expecting a baby girl.
“It was a kid-friendly shower with many of her friends bringing babies,” another source told Us about the fete. “Jessica [Alba] brought her baby Haven, 7 months, and Ashlee brought Bronx, 3. She received tons of gifts mostly wrapped in pink gift wrap and boxes. There were several books, stuffed toys and clothes among other items.”
In photos posted online, Simpson is sporting wavy hair with braids throughout and wears a blue lizard-print maxi gown with her usual sky-high platforms.
In an interview with Elle, Simpson shared that she wants to pick a name that’s personal and unexpected. In Touch reports that the couple’s top contender is Maxwell, which happens to be Johnson’s middle name and his grandmother’s maiden name. “They’re going to call her Maxwell, Maxi for short,” a source said. “Jessica wanted a name with meaning.”
Jessica has reportedly been wearing an “M” pendant around her neck and had clothes ordered with the name monogrammed on it. “She’s gained so much weight and the baby is so big that doctors pushed up the date,” the source said. “Jessica and Eric are so eager to meet Maxwell!”
