Do you care about new, personal photos of Jessica Simpson and her baby? Why not? I thought we all liked photos of babies. Personally, I’d rather look at photos of puppies or kittens or fashion trainwrecks, but babies make my top ten. Anyway, Jessica Simpson has been “guest editor” (“Queen of the Farts,” I say) for iVillage all week. Jessica released some of these photos on iVillage (the black-and-white pics), and some of them she released on her own site (for Eric’s birthday). I think Maxi is a cutie – and she seems like a really happy baby too! I actually love the photo of Maxi laughing while Eric holds her. Here’s some of the stuff Jessica has said on iVillage:
It’s been a whirlwind two years for Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson! Together since the spring of 2010, the happy couple (pictured in N.Y.C. on Sept. 11) met at a party at her house and have been crazy about each other ever since. They were engaged about six months after they started dating and by the sound of what Simpson told iVillage exclusively, they’re a perfect match. “He loves very easily — as do I — and I think that together, [we're] just a really healthy combination.”
Eric and Jessica welcomed daughter Maxwell Drew four months ago, and the star told iVillage that seeing her fiance with their baby is not only extremely sexy, but it’s also very gratifying.
“It’s really great to have given him a blessing like this — to be able to bring [Maxwell] into his life,” she tells us. “It makes me feel really good that I could do that for him.”
We know how Jess feels about her honey, but did Eric get the thumbs up from her tight-knit circle of friends? Absolutely! “Eric is just so amazing!” gushes Jessica’s best friend CaCee Cobb to iVillage. “It’s really great to see her with this guy that’s just really down to earth, very humble, very smart and literally adores her. I’m happy it’s really grown to this, and I couldn’t imagine her having a baby with anyone else in this world other than him.”
That one quote bugs the hell out of me: “It’s really great to have given him a blessing like this — to be able to bring [Maxwell] into his life. It makes me feel really good that I could do that for him.” I’m not going to harp on and on about that and overanalyze it to death (I’ll let you guys do that!), but it does bug me. I think I know what she’s trying to say… that her baby is a blessing, and he’s a great dad, etc. But the way she words it… it makes me uncomfortable.
