Jessica Simpson: Motherhood Is The Best and The Most Challenging

jessicasimpson-

In a new interview with People, Jessica Simpson opens up about the joys and struggles of motherhood.

“Motherhood is the best thing I’ve ever experienced – and the most challenging,” the mom of 8-month-old daughter Maxwell tells.

The Fashion Star mentor who announced on Christmas Day that she and fiance Eric Johnson are expecting their second child, admits that it is challenging to balance her career with her personal life.

“On some of the days of Fashion Star, I’m awake before [my daughter Maxwell] is awake, and I’m not home until she’s already back to sleep,” she explains. “That’s only happened about four times, but it makes the day awful. I definitely need to see my baby.”

“I get really sad if I don’t get to see her,” she continues. “And then when Maxwell sees me, she just stares at me and touches my face. I can tell she missed me. That breaks my heart. Although Simpson adds that she and Johnson, “feel like we’ve done such a good job” parenting thus far.

Jessica Simpson Confirms She Is PREGNANT

Jessica Simpson confirmed what the world already knows, she’s PREGNANT.

Jessica was at her father’s Christmas party and Jessica confirmed she was expecting her second child with her fiance Eric Johnson just seven months after giving birth to daughter Maxwell.  The party was thrown by Jessica’s father Joe to feature his up-and-coming artists that he is managing.

It all went down like this, “As Jessica and her husband were about to leave the party somebody asked her, ‘How’s the baby?’It and she boasted, ‘Which one?! I’m pregnant again!’” One party-goer told Celebuzz but asked not to be identified because she is known to the family. “She was so happy, smiling and giggling.”

There has been speculation for weeks that she is pregnant after US Weekly broke the story claiming she was pregnant again.

Jessica Simpson’s Christmas Plans – Wedding and Baby #2

Jessica Simpson’s Christmas Plans – Wedding and Baby #2

Now that Jessica Simpson has finally shed her baby weight – as a Mom myself, I can attest that this is quite a milestone – what’s next? Rumor has it Jessica’s getting a lot for Christmas this year! There’s a new baby on the way with fiancé Eric Johnson, even though little Maxwell Johnson is just seven months old. And now it looks like there’s a Hawaiian wedding in the works just in time for Christmas!

Since Jess so famously held onto her V card until she was happily married to then-hubby Nick Lachey, I was more than a little surprised when she turned up pregnant with baby #1 without being hitched. Popping out a second while still unwed may be okay for Kourtney Kardashian, but Jessica’s no Kardashian.

Jessica and Eric had planned to get married earlier this year, but she’s been distracted by lots of family and friend drama. First, news broke that dad Joe Simpson and mom Tina Simpson were getting a divorce and then multiple stories broke that the divorce was because former pastor Joe came out as gay to his family – Jessica and Ashlee Simpson included.

But happier news also interfered with planning her nuptials as well. Long time best friend CaCee Cobb is marrying actor and funny man Donald Faison (Scrubs) this weekend. Between being maid of honor for Cobb’s ceremony and diaper duty with Maxwell, it’s not hard to imagine why Jessica’s wedding keeps getting delayed.
