12 Of Jessica Simpson’s Best Quotes On Motherhood

The singer’s three children — Maxwell, Ace, and Birdie — make their mom proud.

“Right now, my kids are in this amazing stage where I’m really listening to them without judgement and they’re teaching me so much. These little innocent kids teach me so much about life.”

As a parent, you’re a leader and they want to be like you. I was at a place where I didn’t want to be who I was anymore, and that was a problem.

I love raising somebody like my sister...I just need to be cool enough for my daughter and sister.

“Being in Target and having my daughter call me Jessica Simpson was one of the funnier moments I’ve experienced with my child, because normally it’s Mom or Mommy...I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for their entire childhood so far.”

My kids have the best hearts. They’re really thoughtful, compassionate children and I’m very lucky.

When I hear my kids cackle, it’s the most healing sound. It’s contagious.

“Family is everything to me. More than anything, I want to teach them morals and values and keep them safe but not afraid.”

I believe in being completely open and honest and I hope they can learn from some of my mistakes — but most importantly, learn that no one is perfect, challenges give us tools, and it’s learning from our mistakes that makes us stronger.

Three is challenging. We are trying to get into the groove and make sure all three kids are getting equal attention...it’s more than a full-time job right now.

“I actually follow their lead in a lot of things. They have so much innocence. And they haven’t had all the traumas and the dark stuff that we cling onto. And they’re capable of making better decisions than we are.”

I would definitely embrace my children being performers. To me, they’re like the stars of my life, so I would love the world to see what I see.
