Jessica Simpson has proven that she can do it all. She is a talented singer who had an amazing singing career early in her life and she now works as a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers. She is also a dedicated wife and mother and says that juggling everything can be difficult at times, but is completely worth it.
She recently opened up about her life and how it has changed since becoming a wife and mother.
“Today, I feel truly comfortable in my own skin. Better exercise habits, food choices, and lifestyle changes have contributed to this, but ultimately, my confidence comes from my state of mind,” she wrote in an essay for Glamour magazine. “Every step I’ve taken up until this point has taught me something. Every decision I’ve made has brought me here. When I reflect on my life, my beliefs, and my experiences, I gain a perspective that connects me more deeply to myself, my friends, and my family.”
After having her children, Jessica struggled with being overweight and admitted that she lost a lot of confidence. She said that her husband helped her with her confidence issues and that she is now proud of who she is.

“Eric has seen me at every size, and he loves me no matter what,” she wrote. “When I got pregnant… I was nervous about starting over again. I had come so far in learning how to balance my career, family life, and hormones, and starting over again felt overwhelming. Eric was so supportive and challenged me to accept my insecurities and focus on what truly matters.”
She also said that she thinks she is at a good place in her life and knows who she is and what she wants.
“When I was younger and starting out in the music business, I always felt like I was being defined by other people—industry executives, fans, the media, and so on. It took a while, but now that I’m in my 30s, I’ve grown into myself and established my identity on my terms,” she wrote. “I embrace my strengths and celebrate even the small victories. I’m certainly not perfect, but when I look in the mirror, I’m proud of the woman I see.”
