After signing with Sony, she released the records Sweet Kisses (1999) and Irresistible (2001). Acting offers ensued, including a part in the 2006 movie Employee of the Month. Nevertheless, Simpson’s largest success to date has come through her fashion empire of clothes, accessories and shoes.
After developing her voice in the neighborhood Baptist church choir, she made an unsuccessful bid for The Mickey Mouse Club in the age of 12. Disappointed but undaunted, Simpson continued to sing in the Christian music tour after being found with a little music label while performing at church camp.
With her dad as her manager and her mom as her stylist, Jessica Simpson finally signed with Sony and toured with popular boy bands through the late 1990s. Success for Simpson stayed just out of reach, yet. Her records got a somewhat lukewarm response, and were eclipsed by the tremendous success of pop contemporaries Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.
The show followed the couple about for their very first year of marriage (and then their second), supplying the insatiable audience having a peek at their glamorous and everyday universe.
Simpson shortly turned to playing having a leading part in Dukes of Hazzard (2005), the big screen remake of the most popular television series. From the conclusion of the exact same year, Simpson and Lachey filed for divorce. Her profession also appeared to flounder, appearing opposite comic Dane Cook in the lackluster comedy Employee of the Month (2006) and receiving little notice for her next record A Public Affair (2006).
Returning to her love of country music, Simpson recorded Do You Understand (2008). The record made it to the top five of Billboard’s album charts. She co-wrote lots of the tunes for the record, which featured a duet with Dolly Parton on the title track. In 2010, Simpson appeared on a reality show entitled Jessica Simpson: The Price of Beauty, which investigated beauty treatments, trends and fads. Additionally in 2010, she released a holiday album, Joyful Christmas.
Recently, Simpson’s singing career has taken a backseat to her fashion empire. Her namesake line of clothes, accessories and shoes is now an extremely successful business, creating about $750 million in sales in 2010.
In 2010, Simpson started dating former American football player Eric Johnson. A couple of years after, on May 1, 2012, the couple welcomed their very first child together, daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson. “We’re so thankful for all the love, support and prayers we’ve received,” Simpson posted on her site shortly after her daughter’s arrival. “This continues to be the best experience of our own lives.”
In November 2012, Simpson declared that she was pregnant for another time. Referencing Simpson’s hoped-for weight gain, news outlets questioned whether Simpson’s pregnancy is a deal-break for Weight Watchers.
Simpson and Johnson had their second child together, a baby son named Ace Knute Johnson, on June 30, 2013. A 32-year old Simpson delivered the infant by means of a scheduled C section, according to reports.
Simpson wed Johnson on July 5, 2014 in California.
