Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson Have Chosen a ‘Unique’ Name for Their Daughter

06/26/2015 at 03:15 PM ET

With wife Ashlee Simpson ready to deliver their daughter any day now, actor and singer Evan Ross can’t wait to become a first-time father.

“I’m so excited. I can’t wait. We’re getting the nursery ready right now,” Ross, 26, told PEOPLE at the launch of OmniPeace‘s Rwanda Rocks! campaign at STK at the W Hotel in Beverly Hills on Thursday night.

But until the baby comes, Ross has his focus set on only one thing: His wife’s well-being. “I’m just taking care of her,” says Ross, who performed at the event (even dedicating a song to wife Simpson, 30, who sat in the audience).

He adds, “That’s my job right now.”

It’s no surprise Ashlee Simpson‘s baby shower celebrating her impending arrival was a relaxed affair.

The mom-to-be — she’s expecting a daughter with husband Evan Ross, 26 — was surrounded by 65 guests at the party, held Sunday evening at sister Jessica Simpson‘s house.

“It was beautiful weather and her house was the perfect setting … so gorgeous,” says an attendee, who adds that Simpson’s newly-engaged mom Tina helped arrange the event.

“It was very chill and almost like just a get-together than a traditional shower,” adds the guest. “It wasn’t focused on games [and was] more like a big party.”

Simpson, 30 — who “looked gorgeous” dressed in a “super flowy, Bohemian-style” outfit — also shared a little bit of the spotlight with her mom. “Everyone was talking about Tina’s engagement and about her ring. She seems really happy,” says the source.

Ashlee Simpson: Being Pregnant Again Feels ‘New to Me’

04/21/2015 at 11:00 AM ET

Evan Ross may soon be the novice parent of a newborn, but Ashlee Simpson wouldn’t quite call herself an expert: She thinks she’ll need to brush up on her baby skills, too.

“I think that no matter what, with every child it’s different,” the mom-to-be, who’s expecting a daughter, told PEOPLE at Monday’s screening of Ross’s new film, Just Before I Go.

“It feels new to me too, and it’s been six years, so I’m like, ‘Here we go! We gotta learn how to get the swaddle on again!’ ”

But the future first-time father — who Simpson says is “already amazing” — isn’t letting his nerves get the best of him. “A lot of times, nervousness is actually just being excited and I can’t wait,” he shares.

“It is the most special thing that I could ever think of, and I’m really excited.”

Evan Ross: Ashlee Simpson’s Son and I Are ‘Like Homies’

02/19/2015 at 04:15 PM ET

When Evan Ross tied the knot with Ashlee Simpson in August, the wedding was about more than the couple’s love: They were also sharing their day with someone very special.

The singer/actor said during a Thursday appearance on The Wendy Williams Show that he was honored to have Simpson’s son Bronx Mowgli there for the celebration.

“He was so excited when we got married,” Ross, 26, tells Wendy Williams. “I was like, ‘It’s just as much your wedding as ours.’ ”

But the 6-year-old’s excitement didn’t come as a surprise. According to Ross, dating — and eventually marrying — Simpson has been a smooth transition for the blended families.

“He’s my friend, we became like homies, we’re good buddies,” he explains of Simpson’s son with ex-husband Pete Wentz.
