Jessica Simpson is set to welcome a baby girl sometime this spring, but that hasn't stopped the 31-year-old from hitting the talk show rounds to promote her new show on NBC, "Fashion Star."
The soon-to-be-mom swung by "Ellen" on Tuesday, and host Ellen DeGeneres joked that Simpson just might go into labor right there on the show.
The very pregnant Simpson, who was rocking a pair of super-tall heels, acknowledged that she indeed looks like she's due tomorrow.
But in reality, she still has "some weeks" to go. DeGeneres couldn't believe it either, and asked how many babies she was carrying.
"There is only one, believe it or not," Simpson said, adding in her defense, "I did get knocked up by a baller. A big football player." Her little girl with fiance Eric Johnson will definitely be over eight pounds at birth, she added.
In the meantime, the reality star/singer/fashion industry mogul says she's been having Braxton Hicks.
"I had contractions last night and I freaked out a little bit...Like these contractions that pregnant women have toward the end and it, like, prepares your body for delivery," Simpson said. "I'm prepared. It's scary. It's like, 'Oh, God' it could happen right now."
If her newborn does make an early arrival, Simpson's ready for the hospital: DeGeneres kindly gifted the singer with a pink nightgown and a pair of pink, fuzzy high-heeled slippers.
