After welcoming daughter Maxwell Drew on May 1, Jessica Simpson made her first public appearance just two weeks later for her runway show. “Getting anxious for the season finale of Fashion Star!!” Jess tweeted. “I can’t wait to see the Jessica Simpson Collection on the runway!! Butterflies!”
After the show, the glowing new mom posed for the above photo with her mother Tina backstage, which she posted to Twitter with the caption, “Mommy we did it!!!!”
If you were hoping to see pictures of her “insanely beautiful” daughter, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer as Jessica and fiancé Eric Johnson have sold the first images to People magazine for a cool $850,000.
Jessica seems to adjusting well to motherhood, telling her Twitter followers last week: “I am so in love with baby Maxwell. I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced.”
Despite having a newborn baby to tend to, the entrepreneur continues to expand her fashion empire with a new maternity collection.
I’m so excited to partner with Destination Maternity to design a collection of fashionable styles that make you look and feel great,” Jessica said. “You want to wear clothes that are flattering to your baby bump; you want to show off your bump.”
The collection is reasonably priced starting at just $36 up to $100. The line will be available in all 700 of Destination Maternity’s stores across the US.
