Forget about a hospital gown.

When it comes time to welcome her little girl into the world, soon-to-be mom Jessica Simpson hopes to make a fashionable first impression.

“I just woke up from a dream that I wore a leopard caftan in the hospital,” the Fashion Star mentor, who’s expecting her first child with fiancĂ© Eric Johnson at the end of the month, Tweeted Tuesday. “Fabulous!! Now I need to find one!” May we offer some suggestions?

QVC has two suitable options: a Dennis Basso caftan (above, left) complete with beaded neckline (on sale for $44.86) and another — appropriately in petites! — by Joan Rivers (above, right, on sale for $33.36).

ASOS has its own offering, an asymmetrical Helene Berman kaftan with a V neckline and wide-cut bracelet-length sleeves (on sale for $87.26). And for something a bit fancier, there’s Natori’s floor-length option from Neiman Marcus (also on sale, $81).

Simpson, who’s taken maternity style to new heights throughout her pregnancy — often rocking heels — recently refuted rumors she had already given birth.

“I’m still pregnant!!” Simpson, who celebrated her dream baby shower in March, Tweeted to fans. “Don’t believe what you read ladies and gents.”

and why not? I think it’s great. I have two boys of my own so I know how exciting impending labor is…it’s painful, yes, exciting, yes, and wonderful, so why not wear something cute to make you feel good about yourself and more relaxed? Number one secret to good labor? RELAXATION…trust me, it matter which way the labor goes!

I normally don’t write comments on the stories I read. I do though get a good kick out of the ones other people say – but I am so TIRED of hearing about Jessica Simpson and her pregnancy. I really believe that she thinks no one has ever been pregnant before her. Honestly STFU and continue on your NORMAL pregnancy and NORMAL due date! Everyone gets big everyone gets embarassing gas and no one cares!!!! UGH!

this woman is unreal. obviously does not live in the real world at all. she will be able to wear her kaftain for her wedding. IF she ever has one.

LOL, most end up naked and she’s going to want something that opens in the front since the baby can go to the breast moments after birth.

I agree with you guys, I honestly don’t know why it’s such a big deal. How does Nick Lachey still get press too? Just have your baby. And as for people saying she has been pregnant “forever,” she just announced it at the beginning unlike many stars.

Due end of April? I remember when she posed at Halloween and then she looked 6 months pregnant. This is why people are going WHAT? Her pictures in October looked like a woman well over 3 months pregnant which she would have been at that time if an end of April due date is correct.
