Jessica Simpson Covers Elle's April 2012 IssueA heavily pregnant Jessica Simpson graces the cover of Elle’s April 2012 issue wearing a red stretch pique dress by Narciso Rodriguez. Inside, Jessica discusses her hopes for her daughter’s sense of style and the tabloids.

On hopes for her daughter’s sense of style: “Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” she blurts out, her Dallas accent swooping back in this moment of heightened anxiety. “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”

On taking tabloid brutality in stride: “I’m still standin’,” she drawls. “I grew up very strong! You know, my father used to be an adolescent therapist. I remember sitting at his office, watching the girls walkin’ in and out. Kids doin’ coke at 16…heroin. Pregnant at 14. I could see what I didn’t want to be.”
