Mom-to-be Jessica Simpson is clearly excited about her pregnancy -- but that doesn't mean she's not missing her pre-baby body. In fact, it's one of the reasons she can't wait to see herself in her new NBC reality show Fashion Star on March 13.
"I wasn't pregnant when we shot it. It will be amazing to see myself with a waistline," the pregnant star said during a conference call Thursday. "I'll be like a big blob sitting on the couch watching myself thin."
The singer-turned-fashion maven will mentor 14 aspiring designers along with fellow celebrity designers Nicole Richie and John Varvatos. Supermodel Elle Macpherson is the show's host.
"Teaming up with this show was a perfect fit," Simpson, 31, said. "I couldn't turn it down because I felt like it was great for my collection, but it was also important for me to talk to these up-and-coming designers and mentor them and kind of show them the ropes and really try to lead them in the right direction."
Now in her final trimester of her first pregnancy, Simpson claims she has a whole new perspective on maternity apparel and is considering adding fashions for pregnant women to the Jessica Simpson Collection.
"The point of launching a maternity line, for me, is to do something different," Simpson explained. "I'm not buying any maternity clothes. I'm wearing all clothes that come in bigger sizes. I really want to make a maternity line that's comfortable, but really stylish for people, because I believe that we all deserve to feel good and look good."
