Jessica Simpson reportedly wants to give birth by caesarean section because she is terrified of pain.
The 31-year-old 'Fashion Star' mentor is due to welcome her first child with fiancé Eric Johnson any day now, and has apparently decided last minute she is too scared to push.
The singer-turned-fashion mogul had planned to have a live-in nurse at her Beverly Hills mansion and a luxury birthing suite reserved at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, but after trying and failing to conquer her fears, she is said to have changed her mind about the method of her daughter's delivery.
A source told In Touch Weekly: ''The thought of going into labor scared the bejeezus out of her. She was so anxious, she was even breaking into cold sweats at night.
''Jessica has no tolerance for pain. She even turned to hypnotherapy to calm her fears about it, but nothing was working.
''She desperately wanted to experience the joy of a natural birth, but decided to go with what made the most sense for her.''
Meanwhile, father-to-be Eric will be on hand to support her through the process.
The source added: ''Eric is a calming force for Jessica. Eric is so excited about the birth.''
Is Jessica Simpson in the prego-homestretch?
Jessica Simpson waited in a Range Rover today (April 18th) while mom Tina Simpson headed into a Los Angeles Chili’s to pick up take-out. Reports are buzzing about a rumor that Simpson might have already had her baby girl, and is just keeping a low profile…just cause. There are also reports that Simpson is opting for a C-section because she’s terrified of the pain that comes with childbirth.
”The thought of going into labor scared the bejeezus out of her,” a source allegedly told In Touch. ”She was so anxious, she was even breaking into cold sweats at night. Jessica has no tolerance for pain. She even turned to hypnotherapy to calm her fears about it, but nothing was working.
“She desperately wanted to experience the joy of a natural birth, but decided to go with what made the most sense for her.”
From these photos, we can’t tell if Simpson has birthed the babe.
Jessica Alba "can't wait" to meet Jessica Simpson's Baby
She said of the 'Fashion Star' mentor: “She’s so sweet! [Her sister] Ashlee and I had already had babies. [Now,] we [can] talk shop about all the baby stuff and the different stuff we’ve learned … I can’t wait to see [Jessica’s] baby!”
But as far as her own little family is concerned, the 30-year-old insists she is done baby-making for now.
She told Access Hollywood: “I’m happy with my two girls … down the road in five or 10 years, who knows, but for right now, I’m good.”
Having just launched a non-toxic baby product website called Honest.com, Jessica wants to devote a bit of time to getting the business off the ground and to re-visiting her acting career.
She said of the website: “This is my third baby. I have actively gotten back into acting. I did my first movie since I had Haven. So that was really fun and exciting.
“I actually got more sleep in that one week than I’ve had in seven-and-a-half months,” she said with a laugh.
Ashlee Simpson and Bronx visit NYC, indicating Jessica Simpson’s due date is likely not imminent
It looks like the world will have to wait a little longer for the arrival of Jessica Simpson's baby. Earlier today, Ashlee Simpson, younger sister of the "Fashion Star" mentor, touched down in New York City with her 3-year-old son, Bronx Wentz. They are in the Big Apple for a visit — perhaps to spend time with Ashlee's boyfriend "Boardwalk Empire" star Vincent Piazza, who resides there — making it seem highly unlikely that her famous sister will be giving birth anytime soon.
Ashlee, 27, and her curly-haired cutie were all smiles after their cross-country flight. In the series of photos of the twosome, they were dressed in color-coordinated outfits — mostly darker hues of black and gray — and Bronx, whose dad is Ashlee's ex-husband Pete Wentz, clutched a Lego toy. Later, he rested his head on her shoulder for a nap.
In February during New York Fashion Week, Ashlee and Piazza, who have been dating since last year, gave their first joint interview. He said that there's nothing better than when she visits him in the Big Apple. "I love when we get to spend time in New York together," he told reporters. "It's where I'm from so we always have a good time." Their idea of a perfect night? They like to "hang at home and cook," she said. He called her "my sous chef" and said their favorite meals to make are "fish or pasta or something, steaks." She gushed: "He's amazing."
It's an exciting time for the extended Simpson family as Jessica nears the arrival of her first child with her fiancé Eric Johnson. After announcing her pregnancy on Halloween, Jessica has shared (and sometimes over shared) many details of her pregnancy with the public, especially as she's spent the last few months promoting her NBC reality series. However, after hitting just about every talk show imaginable and sharing funny pregnancy observations — like "I feel like a bowling ball sitting on my hoo-ha," which she told Jimmy Kimmel — in the last couple weeks the fashionista has been out of the spotlight. She still tweets during her weekly show, but she hasn't been photographed at all recently.
omg! reached out to Jessica's rep to see if she's on bed rest, but we have not yet received a response.
Either way, Jessica is in the home stretch, but — with her sister across the country — she can't be that close to her due date. Can she?
When do you think Jessica will give birth? Take a guess below!
