Jessica Simpson shows off her amazing post-baby body on the cover of Redbook magazine’s February 2014 issue, on newsstands January 14.
Here’s what the 33-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:
On getting criticized for her pregnancy weight: “I never listen to it, no matter who the press talks about when they’re pregnant. It’s ridiculous and unfair. I think any woman who is pregnant and creating a life is pretty much entitled to eat whatever she wants as long as she’s healthy. I wasn’t going to let the media take away from what was one of the happiest times in my life.”
On what will keep her marriage to Eric Johnson healthy: “I’ve learned that sometimes love is not enough. You can have a soul mate and be madly in love with that person, but it¹s not necessarily enough. I think you have to have personalities that mesh well. You have to be the yin to their yang. You also have to be open to figuring things out together and communicating even when it¹s the last thing you want to do. I have to admit, it doesn’t hurt that Eric is one of the hottest men I¹ve ever seen and he looks amazing naked!”
On her high-waisted jeans: “What’s so unbelievable is that I was probably at least 15 pounds smaller than I am right now. What’s more unbelievable is that the press could create something like that out of a pair of jeans…what woman wants to be brought down for wearing a pair of jeans?
