Pregnant Jessica Simpson Pleads For Prayers

Heavily pregnant Jessica Simpson has enjoyed her experience of carrying her and fiancé Eric Johnson soon-to-be baby girl, but now she’s over it and ready to give birth.

“At this point, I’m really ready,” she tells People Magazine. “I’m not sleeping very well; she moves all the time. I had a great pregnancy, but I’m ready for it to be over!”

“It’s so much baby and so much amniotic fluid, it’s crazy,” the “Fashion Star” mentor, 31, continued.”If we have a 10 pounder, pray for me!”

The business mogul shared those exact sentiments with Jimmy Kimmel on Monday when her over-sized baby bump became the obvious choice of topic.

“I feel like I have a bowling ball sitting on my hoo-ha!” Simpson laughed, “…whenever my water breaks it will be like a fire hydrant!”

Has the extraordinary amount of fluid caused her any trepidation about the actual birthing process?

“I’m ready to push!” Simpson assured as she’s only four weeks shy of meeting her baby girl, reportedly named Maxwell (Maxi.)

The day before, Jessica basked in gifts galore and a fun outing with celebrity friends at her baby shower that took on a carnival feel from a children’s book she adored as a child, organized by celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss.

What kind of gifts can her little girl expect upon her arrival? Designer bathing suits, frilly dresses, books, stuffed toys, and, of course— shoes!

“It was a Charlotte’s Web thing. We had a whole fair,” the Texas native said. “We had fried Oreos!”

Guests included mom Tina, sister Ashlee, and actresses Jessica Alba and Odette Annable. Watch a clip of Jessica’s interview below:
