Good Morning America: Jessica Simpson Guest Co-Host
As an actress, singer, new mom to baby Maxwell Drew, business mogul and fashion designer with clothing line worth a reported billion dollars, Jessica Simpson is one busy star. She took time out of her jam-packed schedule to guest co-host for Robin Roberts on Good Morning America Monday, September 11 2012.
GMA’s Amy Robach asked Simpson if she ever expected her career to turn out like this.
“Absolutely not,” Simpson said. “I just was singing and I had my fingers crossed hoping for something big to happen and I’m still doing it years, years and years later. But I think the proudest moment of my life right now is by far Maxwell. She’s my best accomplishment.”
GMA: Jessica Simpson Fashion Design
Simpson confirmed that her Jessica Simpson fashion line will be branching out soon into baby clothing. Simpson said fashion design was always one of her passions growing up.
“My mom and I would always try and put different outfits together to go to school, I would always get best dressed,” Simpson said. “I think that it was just a natural segue into fashion, just having this platform of a career. It was just natural for me, I would have fans being like ‘I want to wear what you’re wearing’ so why not put my name on it?”
Jessica Simpson Baby Maxwell Johnson & ‘Moonface’ Nickname
Robach told Simpson that motherhood seemed to suit her and asked how her life has changed since Maxwell arrived.
“Life has completely changed,” Simpson said. “My priorities are completely different. Even my New York trip has been different, like I want to be in bed by 10 and normally I’m in New York and I’m like 4 a.m.! Not anymore, that’s the old Jess.”
Simpson’s daughter, whose father is former NFL player and fiancé to Jessica Eric Johnson, has the nickname “Moonface.”
“We haven’t really called her Moonface in a really long time but when she was born she looked like the moon to us,” Simpson said. “That was the very first thing that we thought of.”
Simpson shared that Maxwell is very calm, but has a little bit of Jess’ sister Ashlee’s feistiness about her.
Good Morning America: Jessica Simpson Wedding Plans
Jessica and Eric have not yet begun wedding planning, but they know what they want. Simpson said they will wait for Maxwell to get a little older so she can be there and enjoy it.
“We’re just going to get her through the first months of her life and then we’ll do it,” Simpson said.
Jessica Simpson Weight Watchers Weight Loss Results
Simpson and Robach commiserated about comments people made about their respective pregnancy weight gain. So far, Jessica has lost over 40 pounds since giving birth in May.
“A lot of people put pressure on me while I was pregnant, and I was so excited about having Maxwell in my belly that I didn’t really pay much attention to it, but now after having the baby I’ve had to really focus and start training and I joined Weight Watchers,” Simpson said.
Good Morning America: Jessica Simpson Collection
Simpson recently launched a maternity clothing line and several models showed off her collections on Good Morning America.
The first model, who was pregnant, wore a long gray cardigan, diagonal black and white striped top and black leggings. Simpson said that she thinks you could even wear the cardigan after giving birth. The diagonal stripes and side ruching on the shirt help flatter a woman’s baby bump.
Simpson also displayed looks from her juniors and tween lines. The juniors model wore the London denim jacket and the tween model sported a leopard sweater vest.
