    Nicole Richie is due any day with her second child, but she also has another "baby" on board… as designer of a maternity collection for A Pea in the Pod. www.apeainthepod.com

    "I really think that the pregnant body is beautiful and I think that a lot of struggles that women have when they're pregnant is feeling like they have to cover their body," Nicole says. "I think that you should show it off and I wanted to help encourage women to do that."

    I wish this was around when I was pregnant! Everything is hip and easy to wear. Nicole's covetable signature boho-chic style (and her own wardrobe) is the basis for the collection of 14 pieces.

    "I'm very inspired by the '60s and '70s, so I pulled a lot from that. I kind of tweaked the styles that I wear on an everyday basis and made them a little more maternity friendly."

    It was also important to Nicole to make the line as affordable as possible. Prices range from $48-$148. There are maxi dresses, peasant tops and leggings and the ground rule was that every piece had to be something that Nicole herself would wear.

    "I would never put out something that I wouldn't wear myself," Nicole says.
