Posing nude for magazine was my idea: Jessica Simpson

London: Pregnant pop star Jessica Simpson says her nude pose on the cover of the new fashion magazine was all her idea.

The `Irresistible` hitmaker, who is about to give birth to her first child, stripped off for the Elle magazine, said she didn`t need any persuading to disrobe for the camera, Daily Star reported.

"They didn`t even ask me to do that... It was my idea. It kind of just seemed like a natural thing for me to do. What`s funny is I`m, like, 170 pounds and I wanted to pose nude. Normally, I try to be 110 pounds... I just love my body more
than ever right now," she said.

And she says the revealing shoot was extremely comfortable.

"It was just Eric (Johnson), my fiance, and a couple of my friends."
