As she starts to wind down a whirlwind press tour in promotion of her new memoir, Open Book, superstar Jessica Simpson is now revealing that she will "absolutely" let her children read their mother's autobiography one day. The main concern she has about letting them read it now? Their age.

“I have already spoken to them about many of the topics in the book, and I believe in being totally open with them," Simpson told Hollywood Life in an exclusive interview.

Some of it they are not old enough to digest right now, but in time we will be talking about all of it as a family.”

Jessica became engaged to former NFL tight end Eric Johnson in 2010. Their first child, daughter Maxwell June Johnson, was born in May 2012. It was just about one year later when their son Ace Knute Johnson was born in 2013. The couple wed in July 2014 and welcomed a third child, daughter Birdie Mae Johnson, in March 2019.

Sometimes we forget ALL ABOUT the fact that Ashlee Simpson is Jessica Simpson's sister. Seriously, we don't know why - we love them both! But little sis Ashlee took to Instagram to share that she is just as excited for her big sister as we are.

"I am so very proud of my beautiful, brave, kind, loving sister!!! It’s beautiful to see you sharing your truth with the world," Ashlee wrote on February 17th. "You are so inspiring. I love you so much. You are a #1 best selling author 😜"

It wasn't long before Jessica thanked Ashlee in the comments for her support.

"I could not have done any of this without your eternal love and endless support!!! Your bravery in life has taught me how to bandage up my wings and FLY 🦋 I love you 💚"

Aw, we just love to see siblings bonding online!

Back to the interview, though - Jessica continued by saying that she's excited for "people to understand [her] more completely" as a result of this latest project.

“I am hoping they see that i am just a normal person with the same emotions and struggles and insecurities that they have."

Another key topic of Simpson's book has to do with the battles she's fought against drugs and alcohol.

“It is incredible to be sober,” she said. "I have more clarity than ever and I realize how much more I am capable of when I am totally grounded in myself. Believe it or not, I was so clouded when I was drinking that I thought it made me a better version of myself, but I was definitely wrong about that.”
