Jessica Simpson showed off her 15-month-old daughter Maxwell.
Jessica Simpson, 33, took to Twitter to share a recently snapped photo of her first born, who is shown posing effortlessly in a bright pink T-shirt emblazoned with a green-frosted cupcake.
Maxwell is seen hugging her cosy quilted blanket patterned with a cartoonish character while sitting in a corner of the room atop one foot while the other plump leg is stretched out before her.

“Maxwell is crazy beautiful,” Jessica Simpson captioned the photo.
Jessica Simpson has taken to motherhood wholeheartedly and gave birth to her second child with fiancé Eric Johnson on June 30, a boy they named Ace Knute.
Ace Knute’s arrival into the world came just 14 months after Maxwell’s birth and before she was able to lose all the weight from the first pregnancy.
While Jessica Simpson is definitely fuller figured than usual, Eric Johnson has apparently been very supportive about her taking a slower, more healthy approach to weight loss.
Jessica Simpson also has support in the form of her trainer Harley Pasternak, who according to reports is encouraging her to shed the excess pounds slowly but surely.
Jessica Simpson has confirmed she’s pregnant for the second time with a sweet tweet on Christmas morning.
Jessica Simpson, 32, who is engaged to Eric Johnson, posted a picture of her 7-month-old daughter Maxwell sitting in garden with the words “BIG SIS” scrawled in the sand.
She wrote alongside the snap: “Merry Christmas from my family to yours!”
Jessica Simpson confirmed her first pregnancy with a similarly playful post – she dressed as an ancient mummy for Halloween in October 2011 and wrote: “It’s true, I’m going to be a mummy!”
The announcement ends weeks of pregnancy rumors surrounding the star, who had just lost 50 lbs with Weight Watchers as part of a $4 million deal.
Her Expect Amazing commercial, which is officially released on TV today, showed her flaunting her lean post baby body on the back of a pick-up truck.
Weight Watchers congratulated Jessica Simpson on her baby news via a tweet which read: “Congrats to @JessicaSimpson, Eric and big-sister-to-be Maxwell! Your WW family is so thrilled for you. What an amazing year you’ve had!”

Jessica Simpson was last pictured attending her best friend Cacee Cobb’s wedding to Scrubs star beau Donald Faison in Los Angeles on December 15.
She wore a black bridesmaid dress and had a bouquet on hand to strategically cover her bump.
Although the pregnancy wasn’t planned, Jessica Simpson and retired NFL player Eric Johnson, 33, are overjoyed to be having another baby.
A source previously said: “Jessica wasn’t planning the pregnancy but she’s beyond happy about it. She adores being a mother and she’s always wanted to have a big family so she feels totally blessed to have another baby on the way.”
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are said to be hunting for a bigger home to accommodate their growing family and have reportedly made an offer on Ozzy Osbourne’s former home.
Ozzy Osbourne’s $13.5 million Hidden Hills home in California boasts six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a recording studio and a pool.
Jessica Simpson hopes to move before her new baby is born.
Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon bought the property – which is situated in a gated community – for $12.4 million five years ago.
It also has floor-to-ceiling windows, and has examples of the couple’s eccentric style such as a black spiral staircase.
Jessica Simpson showed off little Maxwell’s first swimsuit yesterday as she shared a photo of the adorable four-month-old on Katie Couric’s new chatshow.
Jessica Simpson herself kept her clothes firmly on as she made her much-hyped appearance as the very first guest on Katie.
The 32-year-old singer wore a slimming black peplum Roland Mouret dress as she revealed she had lost 40 lbs since Maxwell’s birth on May 1.
Talking to Katie Couric in her first big TV interview since becoming a mother, Jessica Simpson admitted she didn’t realize how hard it would be to lose her baby weight.
“During pregnancy, I didn’t really think about it,” she said about her weight gain.
“I thought my doctors were telling me that it was just a lot of water and whenever my water broke my whole entire stomach would go down but that did not happen.
“All the weight did not come out with the baby.”

Now Jessica Simpson says she is 10 lbs away from her goal weight, and she’s using her daughter to get there.
“I basically take her with me, whether it’s strapping her on me or strolling around the neighborhood,” she said.
“My new goal is 14,000 steps a day.”
Jessica Simpson is breast feeding Maxwell, and said that sugar cravings had been an obstacle in her weight loss.
“I feel like what made me eat more is my hormones and breastfeeding,” she confided in Katie Couric.
“I’ve never wanted chocolate more in my life. I’ve had to really stay focused and focus on my diet and concentrate on what I’m putting in my body.”

But unlike most new mothers Jessica Simpson is been paid a heady amount to shed her weight.
Jessica Simpson, who tipped the scales at more than 170 lbs during her pregnancy, is following Weight Watchers after signing a deal rumored to be worth $4 million.
She said the programme was working for her.
“You have to track every bit, and you can’t get away with the bites because they add up,” she said.
“You have to be completely honest with yourself, and I think just creating that relationship of honesty with yourself is so good.”
And she said appearing on the show had been driving her weight loss.
“I’ve just had a lot of pressure on me and today was actually one of my goals,” she said.
“Getting here in a comfortable and beautiful dress.”
With the eyes of the world on her, Jessica Simpson also said her weight loss had been somewhat stressful.
“I’ve been pregnant for three years,” she joked.
“I definitely don’t Google my name.
“I try to avoid it completely. But I still subconsciously know that the talk is going on so I think that every day that is a struggle for me.”
“I understand that it sells magazines and stuff. But I wish I could get a cut,” she said.
And she added: “There is a lot of pressure to lose weight. But I want to be healthy for my daughter.”
Talking about her fiancé, Eric Johnson, Jessica Simpson admitted that the couple had yet to set a date to walk down the aisle.
But she said of the American football player: “He’s the best dad. Even my dad says that. He changes every diaper.”
Both Eric and Maxwell Johnson accompanied her to New York from their LA home for the interview.
“She had her first flight yesterday,” Jessica Simpson said of Maxwell.
“She did not sleep. She slept the last hour but she didn’t cry.”
Jessica Simpson said that having her daughter had transformed her life.
“Motherhood is a dream it really is absolutely amazing,” she said.
“My life is very different now.”
Despite her weight loss, Jessica Simpson admitted she was worried about her appearance.
“I almost peed my pants, I’m very nervous,” she told Katie Couric.
She wasn’t the only one.
Katie Couric herself told her audience: “I feel like it’s the first day of school. It’s so nice to be here. I am so thrilled today to finally be here.”
She had plenty of support – her daughters, aged 16 and 21, were in the audience.

As well as looking after her new arrival, Jessica Simpson is also focusing on another time-consuming task – losing her baby weight.
Jessica Simpson, who posted a picture of her post-baby curves last week, hopes shrink to 130 lbs before the end of the year.
The proud mother is adamant she will shed 50 pounds in five months.
Jessica Simpson has signed a $4 million with Weight Watchers to reach her target of 130 lbs.
And she’s enlisted celebrity fitness trainer Harley Pasternak’s and was spotted at his gym in West Hollywood last week.
In addition to her exercise regime, Jessica Simpson is following a strict diet.
Jessica Simpson recently told People magazine that she is eating protein-packed meals and drinking home-mixed juices to help shed pounds.
But in another interview with In Touch magazine, friends say that the star, who is also trying to care for her newborn little girl, is feeling “stressed and overwhelmed”.
Sources told the publication that Jessica Simpson, who weighed a reported 210 lbs at the height of her pregnancy, is also physically exhausted.

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson have finally decided what they’re naming their baby-to-be: Maxwell!
“They’re going to call her Maxwell, Maxi for short,” the friend reveals.

“Jessica wanted a name with meaning,” the friend says.
Jessica Simpson, 31, has been spotted out wearing a diamond “M” necklace in honor of the newcomer. The couple has even ordered monogrammed onesies for the baby, who is due on April 20.
“[Jessica’s] gained so much weight and the baby is so big that doctors pushed up the date,” the friend explains.
“Jessica and Eric are so eager to meet Maxwell!” the friend says.
