Jessica Simpson welcomed her third child with husband Eric Johnson this week. Simpson shared the news of the birth of Birdie Mae Johnson on her Instagram Wednesday with a sweet image of the infant holding on to the hand of her 6-year-old daughter, Maxwell.
As a footwear designer and the first-ever recipient of the FFANY Fashion Icon award, Simpson knows the struggle of finding the balance between work and home life. Below are a few of her best quotes on raising a family:
On Her Home Shoe Style:
Shoe trends are very important. I’m always about being on stilts and having a little lace. I’m normally in sweats. I’ll wear some sweatpants and have heels on.” — 10/26/16
On Celebrating the Holidays:
“I love Halloween, and I love traditions. Since I have had my kids, I’ve hosted a Halloween party for all of my friends and their families. It’s amazing to watch the group multiply as more little ones are added to the mix each year. And I love seeing them all express themselves through their costumes.” — 10/31/17
On Balancing Work and Life:
On Taking Inspo From Her Children:
“When Maxwell was born, I started to focus more on tiny sizes. I knew we needed to design shoes for babies. The baby collection reflects my personal style and love of shoes. Maxwell has a great clothing collection, so I wanted to create perfect shoes to match. She inspires me every day, and I can’t wait until she starts telling me what she wants to wear.” — 2/18/13
On a Family’s Love and Support:
“I feel the most beautiful when I am at home, with my family in my cut-off jean shorts and a T-shirt. I am really a homebody, and when I am around the people who I know love and support me through everything, I feel content, and that makes me feel beautiful.” — 10/9/2018
On the Most Important Project:
“My most important project is always though being a mom and a wife. My kids are 5 and 6 now, and being their mom and Eric [Johnson’s] wife are the best parts of my life. And my most current project, of course, is growing the baby in my belly. We can’t wait to meet her.” — 10/9/2018
