Ashlee Simpson is due to give birth almost any moment now, and her husband Evan Ross could not be more excited for the arrival of his first child. "Yeah of course there's nerves, but there's more excitement," the singer told HELLO! Online about waiting for the arrival of their daughter.

And even though his first child has yet to be born, Evan already knows it won't be his last. "I grew up around a lot of siblings, and I feel like there's something so incredible about knowing that you have brothers and sisters to fall back on and having them to love you, so I love the idea of a big family," he explained. "Big Christmases. That's what I come from."

Ashlee supported Evan as he performed at STK Los Angeles opening

Of course if he ever needs advice on raising a big family, all he has to do is ask his mother, the legendary singer Diana Ross, who raised five children of her own. He shared the best advice she gave him on becoming a father for the first time.

"Just follow your gut. Do what you think is right," the 26-year-old said. "There's no right way other than the way you feel like you should do it, and you'll figure it out along the way.

"Trust me, I'm going to do the best that I can at whatever I do, especially when it comes to my daughter."

The new arrival will be a little sister to six-year-old Bronx - Ashlee's son with ex-husband Pete Wentz - meaning the pretty blonde will be joining big sister Jessica in the mum-of-two club.

Ashlee and Jessica are "really good sisters"

Evan says of the sisters: "They both give each other advice. They look out for each other. They’re really good sisters."

She's just a few weeks away from giving birth, but that didn't stop Ashlee from coming along to support her man as Evan performed at the opening of STK at the W Los Angeles-West Beverly Hills on June 25.

Will he encourage their daughter to follow in her parents' musical footsteps? The How to Live Alone singer added, "I'm sure. I'm sure they're going to like all of the creative stuff, but whatever she likes is good."

It's been a big year so far for Evan, he filmed Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 with Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth, released new music and is will meet his little girl in a matter of weeks.

"It’s all exciting. I feel like these are all things that like, when good things they sometimes happen at the same time and feel like all of my inspiration for my music has been coming from all of the things that have been going on from getting married to having a baby to being in love," he shared. "I don't think one would happen without the other."
