Ashlee Simpson may be only 24 – but, says her dad, she became a full-fledged grown-up the moment she learned she was expecting.
"The day she found out she was pregnant, she became a woman," Joe Simpson tells PEOPLE.
"She's concerned about what she eats and how she prepares for the child and [details like], is the baby's room 'green' enough?" he explains. "It's a transformation you never expect as a parent – you pray for it, but never expect it. She's ready for this baby!"
And, Simpson says, his son-in-law Pete Wentz is equally prepared for their impending due date.

You'd think Jessica Simpson would be an old pro at performing. But at the Nashville listening party for her new country album, Do You Know, on Thursday night, the singer was just a bit freaked out.
"I'm a little nervous," said Simpson to a crowd of nearly 200 record industry folks at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. "If I throw up, I'm sorry."
Brushing her blonde hair from her face, she continued: "Thank you so much for coming and for giving me a chance. I hope you get to experience what my heart's been going through the last few years."
