It’s not fair that Jessica Simpson is so hot, even when she’s severely suffering from the flu. The 39-year-old singer turned shoe mogul shared an update on her family’s 10-day struggle with their gnarly sickness by posting a snap of herself and daughter, Maxwell, sleeping on the couch, only Jessica looks WAY better than any normal person with the flu. Going into detail about what November has looked like so far for her family of 5, the entrepreneur said they’ve been dealing with puke, fevers and even a concussion.
“It was a challenging 10 days for the family,” Simpson captioned the sleepy snap. “Lots of puke, scary high fevers, coughing, and a concussion to top it all off.” She credited her 7-year-old daughter and son, Ace, who is 6 years old, for being warriors during the Johnson family flu-gate. “Maxi and Ace are resilient troopers. Now we need some sleep ???,” she told her 5 million Instagram followers. “Eric and I are so relieved they are happy and healthy now.”
In the photo, a makeup-free Jessica Simpson looked comfortable in her leopard pajamas as she covered herself and her PJ-clad daughter up in a white blanket. The duo are passed out on the couch, and while the description sounds like they’ve been going through flu hell, Simpson and Maxwell’s beauty is hard to ignore. Despite suffering from sickness, the former singer is still a smoking hot showstopper! Sharing the photo with her daughter, Jessica left out any snaps of her husband of 5 years, Eric Johnson, Ace or their 7-month-old child, Birdie May. Simpson’s post has gained lots of attention with fans providing sympathy for the sick star. Even her famous friends are reaching out with support. “Oh no!! Sorry for you guys!❤️” January Jones replied to the shot. One fan even blamed the Mercury Retrograde.
It’s been a tough year on Jessica Simpson’s health. While pregnant with Birdie, she revealed she had been suffering from “months of sciatica pain.” The fashion mogul also experienced three weeks of bronchitis during her pregnancy, as well as severe ankle swelling. Following giving birth to her healthy baby in March, Simpson jumped right back into her fitness routine and emerged 100 pounds lighter only 6 months later!
She made her debut with her trim transformation in September very causally on social media. Sharing a photo of her tiny frame while wearing a black dress, the mom of three revealed she weighed 240 lbs. during her pregnancy and got real with fans about her struggle to drop the weight. “6 months. 100 pounds down (Yes, I tipped the scales at 240),” Simpson captioned the shot. She also stated that she finally felt back to her old self. “My first trip away from #BIRDIEMAE and emotional for many reasons, but so proud to feel like myself again. Even when it felt impossible, I chose to work harder.”
As The Blast reported, Jessica Simpson gave birth to her third child with Eric Johnson in March and didn’t welcome Birdie in just any hospital room. The mega-successful star gave birth via c-section in a $4,000 per night suite at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. Simpson’s shared more than her pre-baby swollen feet and post-baby weight loss. She’s also been keeping fans up to date on her endless milk supply, which happens to be so much that she could supply a grocery store!
