How Jessica Simpson Found Love After a Failed Marriage. 13 Years and 3 Kids Later, She Still Has the Same Passion in Her Relationship
Experts claim that passion in relationships lasts around three years. Maintaining a hot relationship for many years is not an easy task, not even for celebrities. However, the family history of Jessica Simpson and her husband, Eric Johnson, proves that household routine and caring for children did not make their relationship any less passionate. They have a little secret that helps them maintain the same fiery relationship even 13 years after they first met.
Jessica, 42, and Eric, 43, met at a party in 2010. Their relationship developed quickly, and in November of the same year, the couple announced their engagement. Simpson later shared in her memoirs how the beginning of their relationship was, “We connected on all levels. We both were ready for the real deal.”
Both of them had failed first marriages. Eric, an American football player, was going through a divorce process with his wife, and the singer divorced her colleague Nick Lachey in 2005, describing their marriage as her “biggest financial mistake.”
The next year, Jessica announced her first pregnancy on social media. Her first child, a daughter named Drew, was born in May 2012. Shortly after, Jessica learned that she was pregnant with her second child.
The singer humorously joked about their quick pregnancies, which forced them to postpone their wedding, saying she would try not to get pregnant for the third time before tying the knot, “We’ve had two wedding dates, but we had to change them.” Their son was born in 2013.
They got married after the second child was born — four years after they met. “To say ’I do’ in front of family, friends, and, most importantly, our children, has been the happiest moment of our lives.”
Even though family life wasn’t perfect, Eric has always been a supportive, accepting, and loving husband. When the singer decided to ditch her bad habits, he fully supported her.
In 2018, to the surprise of fans, Simpson candidly admitted that she and her husband were trying very hard to become parents for the third time. The good news did not take long to arrive — the Simpson-Johnson family welcomed their third child, a daughter named Birdie.
On their 10th anniversary, Jessica and Eric became a strong family with three children, and they still deeply love each other. Jessica confessed on social media: “I fell head over slippers in love with this perfect man 10 YEARS ago today! By chance he knocked on my dreamy cottage door (sigh), I let him in and never let him leave. He’s mine, and I’m his.”
Jessica often posts hot photos with her husband on social media. It inevitably raises the question of how they manage to keep the spark alive after so many years of being together. The singer decided to reveal their secret which turned out to be kisses, “Don’t forget to kiss. It’s more intimate sometimes for a lot of people and if you forget that, you forget why you fell in love in the first place. It always begins with a kiss.”
