During a Monday taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, singer Jessica Simpson revealed that her sister Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is more than ready to welcome her first child. With Ashlee’s husband, rocker Pete Wentz, recently sharing that his very uncomfortable wife "just wants [the pregnancy] to be over," Jessica says that the 24-year-old has resorted to trying every trick in the book — including "different foot massages" — in order to jump start the labor!

Despite Ashlee’s fierce determination to get the delivery rolling, Jessica — who is equally excited to welcome the new addition — admits that doctors "are going to have to" induce labor as the couple’s baby is "developing really quick." For Ashlee, the possibility of inducing is welcome news, according to the country singer, who says the mom-to-be is quite eager to finally give birth.

As for the sex of the baby, Jessica confirmed that her sister and brother-in-law know, but she’s not at liberty to say!
