Jessica Simpson's 'Hospital Bags Are Packed' Amid 'Tough' Pregnancy

Leena Tailor‍

Jessica Simpson is packed and “counting the minutes,” until her baby girl is here.

The singer, who is expecting her third child with former footballer Eric Johnson, shared a new baby bump pic on Monday, which showed she’s ready to pop any day now.

A source tells ET that Johnson, 39, took the photo, which was captioned “Jess-tation,” and that the star is eager to give birth following an, at times, grueling pregnancy.

“Jessica is definitely uncomfortable,” the source says. “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 couple is currently parents to daughter Maxwell, 6, and son Ace, 5.

While pregnant with her second daughter, whom she has named Birdie, Simpson, 38, has endured some tough times, such as being hospitalized for bronchitis four times in two months.

She has also suffered from incredibly swollen feet.

It’s no wonder she’s ready to give birth!

See more on the star and her family below.

    Ukraine says it captured Russian military intelligence hit squad

    Ukraine's security service SBU said on Wednesday it had captured a Russian military intelligence hit squad responsible for the attempted murder of a Ukrainian military spy in the run-up to a presidential election on Sunday. The issue of how to deal with Russia, which annexed Crimea in 2014 and backs pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, is prominent ahead of the vote, with incumbent Petro Poroshenko casting himself as the commander-in-chief Ukraine needs to defend the country. Vasyl Hrytsak, the head of the SBU, the main intelligence agency, told a news conference in Kiev that seven members of the Russian group had been detained and charged and that an eighth person had been detained on Wednesday morning.

    Notre Dame: Could America's historic landmarks be devastated by such a catastrophic fire?

    James Shepherd hopes Notre Dame's architects and preservationists will call for advice when they're ready to start reconstruction of France's iconic medieval cathedral, which was devastated by fire on Monday. Shepherd is director of preservation at the Washington National Cathedral, where he has spent the past six years overseeing that famous church's painstaking renovation – and fire safety upgrades – after it was damaged in a 2011 earthquake. “We are, just coincidentally, in the midst of … putting in some protections that will prevent us from hopefully ever having to undergo what they are undergoing,” Shepherd told reporters Monday as he and other American church officials absorbed the heartbreaking images of Notre Dame engulfed in flames.

    This is the final production version of the 911 Speedster, a send-off for the 991.2 generation of Porsche's iconic 911 sports car. After seeing the car in concept form, we now know how much it will cost and what engine it uses: a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six. Orders for the 1948 copies of the Speedster open May 7, and we don't yet know how many of those will come to the U.S. In keeping with Porsche's recent tradition, the company will send off the 991.2 version of its 911 with a limited-production special model sure to send the brand's fans into a tizzy.

    Trump Ordered White House Counsel to Tell Acting AG 'Mueller Has to Go'

    President Trump tried unsuccessfully to have the Justice Department fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, according to the redacted version of Mueller's final report released Thursday. White House Counsel Don McGahn told Mueller's investigators that in June 2017, a month to the day after Mueller was appointed, Trump called McGahn and  ordered him to tell the acting attorney general “Mueller has to go,” according to the report. McGahn refused the president's request, later telling White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter that he had planned to resign rather than follow through on the order. However, he said he had not told Trump specifically that he planned to quit.

    'Pillars of Earth' author Follett mourns Notre-Dame

    The author of what may be the world's most popular book about a cathedral told AFP that watching Notre-Dame being eaten up by flames made him feel like someone was dying. British writer Ken Follett's 1989 historical novel "The Pillars of the Earth" sold tens of millions of copies and spent 18 weeks atop The New York Times best sellers' list. Its story about the construction of a 12th-century cathedral in a fictional English town traces the same era as that in which Notre-Dame assumed its majestic place in the heart of Paris.

    Woman accused of making threats against Columbine high school found dead

    The young woman being hunted in Colorado after making threats against Columbine high school just days before the 20th anniversary of the mass shooting there was found dead by police on Thursday, apparently as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, law enforcement officials said. Sol Pais, 18, who authorities said had traveled to the Denver area on Monday from her home in Florida, had been declared armed and dangerous on Tuesday after purchasing a pump-action shotgun and ammunition. She was hunted down in a forested campground in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, west of Denver, late morning on Wednesday.

    Man with two cans of petrol and lighters arrested inside New York cathedral days after Notre Dame fire

    A man has been arrested after walking into St Patrick's Cathedral in New York with two cans of petrol, lighter fluid and lighters just days after a fire tore through Notre Dame in Paris. The 37-year-old New Jersey man allegedly pulled up in a minivan outside the landmark in Manhattan on Wednesday night, walked around the area, and then returned to the vehicle to retrieve the items, said New York Police Department (NYPD). As he enters the cathedral he's confronted by a cathedral security officer who asks him where he's going and informs him he can't proceed into the cathedral carrying these things,” said NYPD deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism John Miller.

    Health insurers and now hospitals have led the sector-wide plunge even as policy analyst like Veda's Spencer Perlman argue that Medicare for All has a slim shot at becoming law. While the broader healthcare sector remains under pressure -- S&P 500 health care names have lost more than 6 percent over the past three days in their biggest drop since December -- managed care's sell-off appears to have abated for now with S&P 500 insurer names now little changed intraday.

    McDonald's Corp said it would remove costlier, premium burgers from its menus in favor of its more popular Quarter Pounders, shifting its focus to simpler and quickly-served burgers. The company said its new deluxe and bacon Quarter Pounders received good feedback and it would continue to focus on such items. "It (the removal) probably has more to do about the process of cooking the burger in McDonald's than it does what the consumer is saying about the food," said Howard Penney, a managing director at Hedgeye Risk Management.

    'A good day': Trump claims victory with Mueller report out

    For nearly two years, President Donald Trump and his allies sought to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, attacking investigators' credibility and playing down their findings. As a redacted version of Mueller's report was finally released Thursday, Trump resorted to bluster, broadsides and falsehoods to try, once more, to frame the moment as a political victory. The report included an account of how the president attempted to seize control of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and force out Mueller from leading the inquiry.

The rather unassuming red brick building didn't boast about the treasures within, but video from the Charlotte Observer revealed a huge hole in the roof and the charred remains of what appears to be a 550 Spyder amongst other less identifiable wreckage. Bob Ingram, a retired pharmaceuticals executive, and his wife reportedly started the collection in 1998 after a visit to the Monterey Historic Automobile Races.

The body of Sol Pais, a student from Surfside, Florida, was found by authorities about 40 miles (64 km) west of Columbine High School, at about 10:30 a.m. local time, said Dean Phillips, special agent in charge of the Denver office of the FBI.

    Opioid crisis: US doctors accused of trading prescriptions for sex and cash in major scandal

    Scores of medical professionals across seven states were charged by federal prosecutors on Wednesday with schemes to illegally distribute millions of pain pills — in some cases exchanging opioid prescriptions for sex, in others for cash with an added “concierge fee”, and in one case routinely prescribing opioids to friends on Facebook. Officials called the case the “single largest prescription opioid law enforcement operation in history”. The indictments, unsealed in federal court in Cincinnati on Wednesday, accuse 60 people, including 31 doctors, seven pharmacists and eight nurses of involvement in the schemes, which included opioid prescriptions issued for gratuitous medical procedures like unnecessary tooth-pulling.

    Former Sears company sues ex-CEO Lampert, Treasury's Steven Mnuchin over 'asset stripping'

    The company that formerly owned Sears and Kmart has sued its ex-CEO, chairman and investor Eddie Lampert and his hedge fund over accusations that they illegally stripped the retailer of assets in the years leading up to its Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Lampert faces accusations that while he was leading the company, he directed the transfer of billions of dollars in assets "for grossly inadequate consideration or no consideration at all" for the benefit of himself, his hedge fund ESL Investments and others. The lawsuit, filed by Sears Holdings, targets about two dozen defendants, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who was previously an investor and board member of ESL and has been friends with Lampert for decades.

    Historic US church tests sprinklers in wake of Notre Dame

    A sprinkler system check at a church that was frequented by George Washington and Benjamin Franklin drew a crowd Wednesday, with dozens of people watching as sheets of water poured from the 196-foot (60-meter) steeple. Christ Church leaders breathed a sigh of relief at the sight: The system check showed that the church has done all it can do to protect itself from a fire similar to the one that tore through Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this week. "One reason we did this was to show symbolic solidarity with Notre Dame," said Barbara Hogue, executive director of the Christ Church preservation fund.

    The Instagram accounts of several Iranian Revolutionary Guards commanders have been blocked, the Tabnak news website reported Tuesday, with the photo-sharing website saying it was complying with US sanctions. The United States announced on April 8 that it has placed the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the ideological army of the Islamic republic, on their list of "foreign terrorist organisations". Tabnak, a site close to Iranian conservatives, said Instagram blocked the accounts of Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, Major General Mohammad Bagheri and Major General Ghassem Soleimani.

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversees test of new tactical guided weapon: KCNA

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the testing of a new type of tactical guided weapon on Wednesday, state media Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said on Thursday. It is North Korea's first public weapons test since the second U.S.-North Korea summit in Hanoi ended with no agreement in February. KCNA did not describe exactly what the weapon is, including whether it was a missile or another type of weapon, but "tactical" implies a short-range weapon, as opposed to the long-range ballistic missiles that have been seen as a threat to the United States.
