Jessica Simpson - Jessica Simpson wanted 'comfortable' maternity line
Jessica Simpson was inspired to create her own maternity fashion line because she didn't feel ''comfortable'' in other maternity clothes while pregnant with her first child.
Jessica Simpson launched her own maternity fashion line because she didn't feel ''comfortable'' while pregnant with her first child.
The singer-and-fashion designer - who has two children, Maxwell, 15 months, and two-month-old Ace, with fiancé Eric Johnson - was inspired to create her own line of clothing for pregnant women because she struggled to find outfits she could feel good in while expecting her daughter.
She said: ''When I was pregnant with Maxwell I was having trouble finding maternity clothes that were comfortable and cute. So my mum and I decided to do a line of affordable maternity clothes that women would love to wear. I wore it all through my second pregnancy.''
The 33-year-old star also has a regular women's fashion line - The Jessica Simpson Collection - but while it bears her name, Jessica admits the endeavour is a family effort, with her sister Ashlee, 28, recently modelling her designs.
She added to the new issue of UK HELLO! magazine: ''Ashlee starred in the campaign when I was pregnant. It was fun for me to be behind the camera. I love working with my family. I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love alongside them with the collection.''
