If anyone has had to face the full force of the public eye's most seething scrutiny, it's Jessica Simpson. With her weight closely watched between baby one and baby two, it's hard to imagine what she's endured. But, that hasn't stopped her from loving herself, and more importantly, she opens up in an interview with InStyle, it didn't stop her amazing husband Eric Johnson either.
"I'd been scrutinized about my weight before I got pregnant, so I refused to let anyone steal the joy of my babies," she says of the constant tabloid fodder. "My husband and I were looking at old pictures recently, and I asked him, 'Babe, why didn't you tell me to put the brownie down?' He said, 'You looked great.' He's always loved every curve on my body. And we've always had a healthy sex life."
What ultimately motivated her, unsurprisingly, was wearing that incredible gold-embroidered Carolina Herrera custom wedding dress! "I worked really hard because I wanted to appreciate being in a wedding gown again," Simpson explained of her intense workout regimen. "I wanted to enjoy it like I did the first time. But I didn't have a weight goal; I just wanted to look healthy."
As for more children, Simpson's not so sure about that at the moment. "Having two kids back-to-back was hard on my body," she said. "But if I do have more, I wouldn't want them to read this and think they weren't wanted!"
Well, if one thing's for sure, it's that Johnson is one incredible husband! We've always admired their very apparent, and deep love for one another but this just sealed the deal.
