Jessica Simpson whipped up a storm in the kitchen yesterday as she took a moment to thank fallen soldiers for Memorial Day. The 39-year-old singer, actress, clothing designer, and “Open Book” author updated her Instagram on Monday with a stunning and emotional photo – the “Dukes of Hazzard” star was with 8-year-old daughter Maxwell as the two baked a cake in Jessica’s kitchen, with the blonde’s whittled-down frame on show. Jessica famously dropped 100 pounds in just six months after welcoming third baby Birdie in March 2019.
Jessica – who clocked herself over 120,000 likes overnight for her post – kept the photo light, but the caption took less than an hour to bring personal thanks from those personally tied to U.S. forces: “Thanks! My husband is in the navy & it makes me so happy to have you supporting and praying for us ?,” one fan wrote.
The simple snap showed the mom of three in a gray t-shirt with “ARMY” written on it in pink, plus a matching hair bow as she was snapped whipping up cake batter and surrounded by measuring jugs, butter, and Maxwell joining her mom.
A lengthy caption opened with: “When a Soldier, Airman, Marine, or Sailor says Hooah, Oorah, or Hooyah, they know it could be their last,” also seeing Jessica write: “When a Soldier is laid to rest, they are still working.”
A more personal note read: “I am thankful for the courage you have for others and feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for providing me the freedom to cherish this simple, blessed moment today baking with my family.”
A celebrity like came in from 22-year-old reality star Savannah Chrisley, with a reply from a marine rapidly gaining likes.
The U.S. flag thrown out in emoji form was seen in multiple replies, with one response shooting up the comments section. It came from a U.S. marine, writing: “Well said…btw we Marines say Ooorah, no “H” necessary ?❤️??.”
Possibly raising eyebrows, was a fan who wrote: “Thank you for this! There is no “happy” in Memorial Day. ❤️” Celebrity updates marking the annual calendar date didn’t exclusively go smoothly this weekend, with 39-year-old socialite Paris Hilton being told that a rose petal-covered nude look is “not how” one wishes someone a happy Memorial Day.
Jessica – who was embroiled in a body-shaming Vogue storm some weeks ago – has been continuing to show off her stunning, 100-pound weight loss with looks that have included her $4,000 Fendi trench coat, plus a headline-making bikini photo as she bobbed around her pool. Jessica dropped the weight by walking up to 10,000 steps a day, with her trainer Harley Pasternak revealing a diet of whole eggs and egg whites, grilled fish and salads, plus snacks that included almonds and green beans with Parmesan cheese.
