Jessica Simpson pulled out all the stops as she updated her Instagram right from the pool this weekend. The 40-year-old actress, singer, and "Open Book" author dedicated her Sunday update to a little water fun with 8-year-old daughter Maxwell.

Jessica, herself flaunting her killer bikini body and 100-pound weight loss, was nonetheless a little outdone by her daughter's mermaid swimwear. The "Dukes of Hazzard" star turned the stunning photo into a hashtag, though. Instagram has left Jessica over a quarter of a million likes.

All Smiles After Confronting Childhood Abuser

Scroll for the photo. It comes shortly after the July 30 headlines Jessica made for confirming she had confronted her childhood abuser – Simpson alleges she was sexually abused by a family friend's child between the ages of 6 and 12, with the reveal featuring heavily in her "Open Book" memoir.

The snap showed Jessica holding her daughter and chest deep in a pool backed by a terrace. The blonde was rocking a tiny string bikini and shades as she smiled, with Maxwell seen full mermaid-style as she wore a deceptively convincing scales bikini with her legs and feet covered by a giant fishtail.

Comments Are Straight-Forward – To Begin With

Jessica, followed by 5.4 million on Instagram, definitely raked in the likes, with the comments largely seeing fans go wild over the shot – but not everyone. A caption had read: "Me and Maximaid #MAXIDREW."

"Omg that tail!!!!! Need it," one fan wrote, with another saying: "That’s so awesome! Where did you get it? Would love to know so I can get one."

Jessica, who dropped her 100 pounds in just six months after welcoming third baby Birdie Mae in 2019, was also showered with compliments for looking so great after pushing out three kids.

While the vibe was largely positive, not everyone was throwing the fishtail the thumbs-up.

"Super cute but please be careful with them tails...," a fan wrote, with over 20 others agreeing. A concerned user chimed in with their own experiences, writing:

"A friend’s daughter almost drowned because of that mermaid tail. Don’t leave your child unattended please!!" They were, however, told that "knockoffs" are to be avoided and that the bikinis has "safety instructions" by another fan.

Daughter Maxwell is now involved in her mother's life with way more than just the social media snaps.

Jessica continues to expand her empire via her best-selling Jessica Simpson Style brand – the popular label is reported to have turned $1 billion in annual sales back in 2015.

Jessica wrote: "Maxi begged to design (like mommy😉) some bedding that would give girls unicorn dreams to make their wishes come true and feel cozy and close. One of the best blessings in life is to help make your daughter’s dreams come true... 🦄💜💫 #"
