Go Inside Jessica Simpson’s Baby Shower

at 4:15 pm | By

Jessica Simpson’s expecting the pitter patter of little (boy) feet and admits she’s crossing her fingers baby No. 2 will take after this fashionable mama.

“Maxwell is definitely a daddy’s girl… so I hope my son will be a mama’s boy,” she told People in the mag’s exclusive sneak peek inside the Fashion Star mentor’s Tom Sawyer-themed baby shower April 14 at Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles.

As style savvy as the mommy mogul shows the world each week on the hit NBC show, this time around she’s making a different fashion statement sans her signature stilettos.

“I’ve been less about the fashion and more about the comfort,” she told the mag. “With Maxwell, I tried to wear heels the whole time, but it hurt my knees. Now I’m wearing more flats!

“I’m a lot less anxious this pregnancy. I’m a lot more easygoing.”

She also learned a few foodie lessons from her first pregnancy, when she gained a headline-making 60 pounds.

“Now I’m working out three times a week. I’ve only gained half of what I did during my first pregnancy,” she told People.

But for one special day the 32-year-old indulged her cravings, munching on snacks of sliders and pigs in blankets, along with sweet treats like donuts and red velvet cake at the ladies-only event organized by celeb party planner Mindy Weiss.

The 48 guests included little sis Ashlee, mom Tina, BFF Cacee Cobb (who’s also expecting!), gal pal Jessica Alba — and a surprise visit by fiance Eric Johnson, 33, and 11-month-old daughter Maxwell, who’s excited about becoming a big sis.

“Maxwell knows what’s up,” Jessica said. “She gives my belly kisses.”
