Jessica Simpson got herself a “Holy Jesus girlfriend, how did you lose so much weight???” comment yesterday. The 40-year-old singer, actress, and author updated her Instagram with a stunning, low-key shot of herself and 2019-born daughter Birdie Mae. Jessica famously dropped 100 pounds in just six months after welcoming her third child, with the “Open Book” author’s whittled-down frame still very much a talking point for fans.
Jessica and her 17-month-old daughter are now the talk of the town in the comments section. Check out the photo and reactions below.
Scroll for Jessica’s latest snap. The above one came earlier this month as the “Dukes of Hazzard” star enjoyed a pool moment with 8-year-old daughter Maxwell while at the $11.5 million property she’s quarantining in. As The Blast reported, Maxwell’s mermaid fishtail bikini proved controversial – fans pointed out the drowning risks, but that’s all forgotten now.
Jessica’s Monday photo showed her in a ribbed white tank and casual denim overalls, with adorable Birdie in a floral romper as the two posed outdoors. “Cali Cowgirls #BIRDIEMAE,” Jessica wrote.
Jessica, followed by 5.5 million on Instagram, landed herself all the praise in the world. She and Birdie were called “total cuties,” with many a fan zero’ing in on the blonde’s killer figure.
“You look AMAZING!!! so healthy!!” one wrote – and those kinds of comments haven’t always come easily. 2020 saw Jessica turn 40 in a 14-year-old pair of True Religion jeans, with countless users expressing concern that she’d gotten too skinny. “This is the look of anorexia,” a fan had written, with many others feeling the weight loss had gone too far.

The comments did flatter the star over her sensational figure – “Your arms are amazing,” one fan wrote, but questions likewise came in over the style. Jessica, of course, runs her Jessica Simpson Style clothing line. With a reported $1 billion sales turnover in 2015, the brand is a more of an empire than a side gig.
“Not sure which one of you is more adorable!! (Also where are your overalls from?)” one fan asked. Simpson replied: “They are super old @paige.”
The skinny minny now all over the news for both her adorable family and more serious reasons – Jessica recently revealed sending a copy of her memoir to her childhood sexual abuser – has been serving up major designer looks this year. Scroll for the weight loss deets.
Jessica, who this year has shown off her weight loss in a $4,000 Fendi trench and Stella McCartney sweats, made headlines via her trainer Harley Pasternak late last year. He told Hollywood Life that his client walked up to 10,000 steps a day to shed the weight.
“She would eat one whole egg and three egg whites for breakfast, scrambled with a bowl of blackberries. For lunch she would have a salad with grilled chicken and grilled fish with salad and vegetables for dinner,” he told the media outlet, adding:
“As for snacks, she would have almonds and sometimes green beans with Parmesan cheese on top. She was very disciplined.”
