Jessica Simpson’s “hospital bags are packed” as she nears her due date for her third child.

The 39-year-old singer and actress is currently expecting her third child with husband Eric Johnson - with whom she already has daughter Maxwell, six, and son Ace, five - and although she’s feeling “uncomfortable”, sources say she’s prepared to rush to the hospital at any moment.

An insider told Entertainment Tonight: “Jessica is definitely uncomfortable. This has been a tough pregnancy but she knows it will all be worth it when she’s holding that little baby. Her hospital bags are packed. Everyone is trying to be patient, but the family is so excited and counting the minutes until the baby is here.”

The Blonde Ambition star posted a picture of her burgeoning baby bump on social media this week, which showed she was ready to give birth any day now.
Meanwhile, Jessica previously admitted she "doesn't understand" how she got pregnant again.

She admitted: "I thought about [having another baby], but I didn't really know that it could actually happen. We definitely always love to practice. We actually weren't practicing very much that month so I don't understand. We try [to figure it out]. This might be a miracle baby.”

But despite her confusion over the impending arrival, her children are "so excited" to be a big brother and big sister.

She added: "They're so excited because they're only fourteen months apart, so they didn't get to experience the excitement of each other. But when I told them that we're having another baby, I know that they'll remember that for the rest of their lives. They are most excited about learning how to do the swaddle.

Maxwell, my daughter is just so happy that it's a girl. They ask me the craziest questions that I can't say on TV ... 'How does the baby come out?' 'Where does the milk come from, I don't understand!' I'm a little bit too honest, and Eric's like, 'I don't think we need to give out ALL the information, Jessica. So, I'm scaring my kids, I think."
