Now that her secret is out, Jessica Simpson can't help but gush about the baby she's expecting with fiance Eric Johnson.

"We're both thrilled," the 31-year-old singer tells the new issue of Us Weekly (out now). "We can't wait to meet our baby!"

According to a Simpson pal, the first-time mom-to-be is "very, very excited about the pregnancy. Family is really the most important thing to her."

Luckily, Simpson hasn't suffered from any morning sickness, though she has been "really tired lately," a pal tells Us. "She goes to bed super early now and gets up at 5:30 in the morning."

Not that Simpson is slowing down. Along with her upcoming NBC reality show, Fashion Star, and a shoe and clothing empire worth nearly $1 billion, Simpson just launched her skincare system, BeautyMint, and is working with Zales on a jewelry line.

"The craziest thing is, she's still taking all her meetings — in heels!" jokes another confidante.
