Los Angeles: Singer and actress Jessica Simpson, who is pregnant with her first child, says she is due to give birth in spring 2012.

The `Irresistible` singer spoke about her pregnancy in a recent interview saying that everything has been running smoothly and she experiences no morning sickness, reported Access Hollywood.

"I am having a spring baby," she said.

Having said that she feels great being pregnant, the `Fashion Star` mentor gushed, "Pregnancy is a friend of mine, so everything has been running smoothly. So far, so good - no morning sickness. I feel great. I`m tired, but you know, I`m making a baby here!"

The 31-year-old, who has put her plans to marry fiance Eric Johnson on hold due to the pregnancy, also recalled taking the test.

"I was feeling a little off. [I first told] Eric, of course. He was in the house. He didn`t know that I was taking a pregnancy test, so I kind of shocked him. I came in shaking like, `Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! This is happening!` We both cried. We were in shock and kind of just sat there and stared at each other."
