Jessica Simpson Dreams of Giving Birth in Leopard Caftan

Forget about a hospital gown.

When it comes time to welcome her little girl into the world, soon-to-be mom Jessica Simpson hopes to make a fashionable first impression.

“I just woke up from a dream that I wore a leopard caftan in the hospital,” the Fashion Star mentor, who’s expecting her first child with fiancé Eric Johnson at the end of the month, Tweeted Tuesday. “Fabulous!! Now I need to find one!” May we offer some suggestions?

QVC has two suitable options: a Dennis Basso caftan (above, left) complete with beaded neckline (on sale for $44.86) and another — appropriately in petites! — by Joan Rivers (above, right, on sale for $33.36).

ASOS has its own offering, an asymmetrical Helene Berman kaftan with a V neckline and wide-cut bracelet-length sleeves (on sale for $87.26). And for something a bit fancier, there’s Natori’s floor-length option from Neiman Marcus (also on sale, $81).

Simpson, who’s taken maternity style to new heights throughout her pregnancy — often rocking heels — recently refuted rumors she had already given birth.

“I’m still pregnant!!” Simpson, who celebrated her dream baby shower in March, Tweeted to fans. “Don’t believe what you read ladies and gents.”

Love Jessica!!!

Courtney on

as I replied to her on twitter that would be cute and Technically her due date hasn’t come yet so the baby isn’t late

Ann on

TACKY….JUST LIKE HER!!!!!

guest on

Oh good Lord..

Guest on

I feel like she has been pregnant for 5 years.

Marky on

Ann, is there anything she could do that would be okay with you, or are you the typical “hater” and have no real reason to dislike this person you don’t even know? She’s a pregnant woman in those last couple of weeks during which you just WISH the baby would come and you could finally look in your baby’s face. She’s kind of an open book, and has a quirky sense of humor; why do we think it’s cute for some, and not for others? Jessica is like a real, live person, and no tackier than most celebs we see.

Guest on

I’m not hating but darn hasn’t she been pregnant forever? Sheesh!!

diana on

Isn’t the right word Kaftan? I think people spell it with a C but K is more traditional…

Daia S. on

She is really dumb.

bh on

That’s all she has to worry about? Maybe she should be making wedding plans instead.

tia on

Believe me when it comes time to deliver that baby she is not going to care what she looks like!She is going to want to get there and be done and have it over! You can tell she has never birthed a baby…..worrying about being fashionable in the delivery room.. too funny.

librababe on

I saw the words “Jessica Simpson” and “birth” in the headline on the homepage, and I immediately thought, “she’s finally given birth!”

but then I actually read the headline and realized…we’re just talking about it. Again.

lol I like Jessica but it feels like this baby is just never going to get out of there!

kris carlin on

I think if your going to go through all the pain and suffering you should wear what ever you want!! You go girl!!!!

LN on

BH- she doesn’t have to get married because she’s having a baby, this is 2012 not 1912.

TB on

I like jessica, but now she is getting ridiculous. What if she has to have an emergency c-section (i hope not) but you never know.

KL on

Tia- that’s not necessarily true, with my first I actually bought a pink hospital gown to wear and I had my sister doing my hair when i first got to the hospital so it would look okay in pics. Some women do still care what they look like even when they’re been in labor for 13 hours.

fran on

give birth in the leopard dress, tiger dress or in 9 inch heels with a prom dress, just do it! we have been hearing every aspect of this pregnancy for what seems like years!!!!

Deannie on

Jessica said one of her biggest worries was that her daughter would be an athlete and not want to shop with her. Need I say more? IDIOT.

Woozle on

That’s not a caftan, it’s a MuMu!

rhonda on

I cannot believe the individuals that whine and complain about the whole marriage thing. She did it once already give her a break and use any celebrity as a role model for your own kids? The first role model should be you and if you need a celebrity to put forth morals and ethics you should have not had kids. I know that I make sure to tell my kids what was appropriate and what was not. I teach them about good and bad consequences. A kid does drugs the parents are the first to blame television or the movies but who really had the choice of allowing them to go. Don’t give me the garbage of they would have did it any how. That’s when you set restrictions and tell them no. It doesn’t hurt a kid to hear no. All in all the parent is suppose to be the responsible one and the role model first. you don’t want your kid looking up to a celebrity tell them what is good or bad with that individual. by the way looking at the positive in an individual does wonders there is one to preach to you all. People are quick to point out everyone’s flaws. Everyone has something good or bad about them focus on the good and you will be surprised at how positive your outlook on life becomes.

Regina on

OK Everyone needs to Lighten UP! Layoff Jessica!

Jeanine on

@BB I think she is more worried about delivering a happy baby at this moment than she is about planning a wedding…and if she never does that is none of your business….as long as people are happy who cares. Also just and FYI for you….this is 2012….not 1950!

Sarah Harris on

In all seriousness, she can get a couture hospital gown from Cure-Couture.com

They’re a really cool company, and I love their products. If I knew I were going in the hospital long term, I would consider it seriously – they aren’t that expensive.

Simpson, a spoiled daddy’s girl, has grown into a woman who thinks that everyone loves her like Daddy loves her. Well, honey, we don’t. You are not special or unique in any useful way that I can see.
Broadcasting your pregnancy is annoying to 300 million Americans and probably the rest of the planet as well. You are also setting up your unborn child for a lifetime of cameras, intrusion, and scrutiny. Is that what you want for your unborn child?
Get some humility, get back to your Higher Power, and stop worshipping yourself. There are vital issues in this world and your pregnancy is not one of them. So shut up.

My BF said last night “I think she has a demon child. Hasn’t she been pregnant 5 years?”

kjf916 on

My BF said last night “I think she has a demon child. I feel like she’s been pregnant at least 5 years.” I feel the same. For God’s sake, give birth.

Courtney on

Have the baby, end the seems-like-two years pregnancy and stop talking about it already!

Samantha on

I love the Joan Rivers one; with the waistline like that it almost looks like it’s supposed to be a maternity caftan … and even I could afford it. It probably has a Joan Rivers tag in the back though … so I’d probably cut that out.

Loveit on

I love how everyone is saying that it feels like she has been pregnant forever. There was speculation and then she made it official at Halloween with her mummy pic. Generally people wait until 12 weeks or 3 months to announce it. Guess what, October was 6 months ago. You do the math. And trust me, now that I’m in my third pregnancy there is nothing more annoying than other people saying you have been pregnant forever because it feels even longer to the woman herself.

Ashley on

Ridiculous!

me on

and why not? I think it’s great. I have two boys of my own so I know how exciting impending labor is…it’s painful, yes, exciting, yes, and wonderful, so why not wear something cute to make you feel good about yourself and more relaxed? Number one secret to good labor? RELAXATION…trust me, it works..no matter which way the labor goes!

Sarah on

I normally don’t write comments on the stories I read. I do though get a good kick out of the ones other people say – but I am so TIRED of hearing about Jessica Simpson and her pregnancy. I really believe that she thinks no one has ever been pregnant before her. Honestly STFU and continue on your NORMAL pregnancy and NORMAL due date! Everyone gets big everyone gets embarassing gas and no one cares!!!! UGH!

Guest on

SERIOUSLY!!!??????

cassie baker on

this woman is unreal. obviously does not live in the real world at all. she will be able to wear her kaftain for her wedding. IF she ever has one.

mindy on

LOL, most end up naked and she’s going to want something that opens in the front since the baby can go to the breast moments after birth.

fran on

or formula….

Me on

I agree with you guys, I honestly don’t know why it’s such a big deal. How does Nick Lachey still get press too? Just have your baby. And as for people saying she has been pregnant “forever,” she just announced it at the beginning unlike many stars.

Alyssa on

Due end of April? I remember when she posed at Halloween and then she looked 6 months pregnant. This is why people are going WHAT? Her pictures in October looked like a woman well over 3 months pregnant which she would have been at that time if an end of April due date is correct.

tillie on

Get a tent

diva on

I don’t know why but I am so sick about hearing of your pregnancy and impending birth. maybe news about your wedding will be more ineresting.

prima on

She’s HUGE !!!

cindy on

Interesting that we never here any concern about this little baby’s health. Just hear and see her pigging out, shopping in stilts and blabbering about tacky fashion.

sadly past behavior predicts future behavior

Katie on

I’ll bet Vanessa Manillo gives birth before Jessica does! This does seem like the longest pregnancy on record. I can’t believe she’s still not due until May?

jenn on

does anyone else feel like she has been pregnant forever?! i am SO sick of hearing about it. she isnt the first star to have child or gain weight.

judie7112 on

Jessica wear whatever you want. It is your day YOU GO GIRL!!!!!

Gicenia on

Trust Jessica when you have those legs pulled back and that baby’s head in your wahoo the last thing your gonna worry about is what your wearing. Oh to be so naive!

Jennifer on

It’s labor and delivery, not a fashion show. Good grief…..

WellBeing on

“Yawn” Wake me when it’s over!!!!

Cat626 on

I shaved my legs in the shower while in labor, but as far as what you are wearing, delivery is kind of dirty business, I’d save the kaftan for after the delivery when visitors arrive and photos are taken.

Paula on

Geeze Folks, this isn’t about world peace, it’s a gal expecting a baby. SO many mean & critical comments. How can you even feel that way when you don’t know this person, wish her well & pray for a healthy baby. Jessica donates a ton of money to charity & helps a lot of folks under the radar, how bad of a person can she be? Good luck Jessica!!

Ainsley on

Thinkin’ she’ll be wearing leopard caftans for sometime to come! She’s the largest pregnant lady I’ve seen in a LOOOOONG time that has a smaller frame. She looks like octomom — but with baby of one.
