Singer and fashion mogul Jessica Simpson has spent the last few years taking on motherhood fulltime. The former pop star, 33, gave birth to her second child, Ace, with fiancé Eric Johnson in June 2013. Simpson’s daughter Maxwell turns two this May, and her mom recently began to show her off to the world.
Simpson joined the popular social media platform Instagram in January and has been posting cute family pictures ever since. On January 14, she posted her first photo with the caption, “It’s official, I just joined Instagram before it’s not cool anymore!” Within a few days, she had followed up that initial post with some candid family pictures that really gave the public their first look at the kids in their home environment.
She captioned the photo, “Love this lil lady more than anything!” She followed that picture up with a few shots of her daughter wearing a vintage Dolly Parton t-shirt and sporting platinum blonde locks just like her mother.
Little Maxwell drew further attention from Simpson’s followers with a picture of her wearing a diaper and cowboy boots. The caption from Simpson read, “Raiding mom’s closet. I don’t blame her! She is too young to steal ;).”
While it took her almost two years to start sharing pictures of her daughter, Simpson has been more open with photos of her son, Ace. At just seven months, she has posted several photos of Ace alone as well as others of the two kids together. Alongside one photo featuring just her and her son, Simpson wrote, “Ace is the place that I become the annoying kissing mom. All I want to do is snuggle this lil emotional perfect soul! He is a dream!”
Of course, Simpson hasn’t just stuck pictures of her kids now that she has an Instagram account. She has also been documenting the important events in the lives of her family and friends. She posted a picture with her sister Ashlee, who just got engaged to actor and musician Evan Ross. Jessica has also kept up with photos of just her and Johnson, insisting that the two are as happy as ever and that they plan to get married sometime in 2014.
After having Maxwell in 2012, Simpson became the spokeswoman for Weight Watchers right before she found out that she was pregnant with Ace. Now that she is done having kids (at least for now), she has returned to the program and been shedding weight quickly. In addition to her family photos, the celebrity has occasionally shown off her own stunning figure on Instagram as well.
Simpson hasn’t announced her next professional move after her television program Fashion Star was canceled last year. Instead, she has been focused on getting fit and spending time with her family.
