The family of five had “lots of puke, scare high fevers, coughing and a concussion to top it all off,” the multi-hyphenate star shared on Instagram.
Jessica Simpson’s Family Battles Illness
“Maxi and Ace are resilient troopers. Now we all need some sleep,” she continued in the cation. “Eric and I are so relieved they are happy and healthy now.”
Simpson herself dealt with many pregnancy-related health issues while she was pregnant with her daughter Birdie last year. She shared that she had sciatica pain, a long bout of bronchitis, and ankle swelling so bad it made it difficult to get around.
She didn’t let the challenging pregnancy slow her down, though. After her youngest was born, Simpson started an intense diet and workout program that resulted in her losing 100 pounds.
“My mantra is you get lean in life, and strong in the gym. So the majority of the weight loss actually came from everything she did outside of the gym, and then everything in the gym is about toning and tightening,” Simpson’s trainer Harley Pasternak told People earlier this year.
With Pasternak’s approach, Simpson has been focusing on getting her steps in, clocking enough hours of sleep, putting away electronics for an hour a day, watching what she eats, and exercising.
Cheers to healthy families!
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
