Jessica Simpson says she is relieved to be recovering, after she reveals that she has been having a rough 10 days with her family who have battling with a terrible illness.


Jessica Simpson spent the past 10 days living every parent's worst nightmare as she battled illness that not only affected her but also her entire household. In a picture of her cuddling with her daughter, Maxwell Johns, she explains:

"It was a challenging 10 days for the family. Lots of puke, scary high fevers, coughing, and a concussion to top it all off."


Wearing leopard print pyjamas, Simpson is asleep on layer of pillows while Maxwell, who is also asleep lays her head on her mother's hip.

The two look like they are taking some much needed rest as they have their hair tied loosely in a ponytail while each snuggling their own blanket.


With a eight-month-old, Birdie Mae Johnson in the house, the contagion couldn't have come at a worse time.

Thankfully she reassures her followers that her older children, who were affected have weathered the illness.


"Maxi and Ace are resilient troopers. Now we need some sleep ?? Eric and I are so relieved they are happy and healthy now," ? Simpson reveals.

Fellow celebrity mothers, who are no strangers to the dreaded family outbreak showed her support, "Mad Men's" January Jones comments saying:

"Oh no!! Sorry for you guys! "

It is reported in the past year Simpson has dealt with a string of illnesses, particularly during her third pregnancy with Bridie. 


She spent three weeks sick with bronchitis, endured severely swollen ankles and during a few months of her pregnancy she also had sciatica pain, which is a pain that runs down the lower back the legs.


Hopefully, her health setback didn't affect her weight loss routine. In September, Simpson proudly announced that after six months since giving birth she had lost 100 Lbs.

To help her lose weight she enlisted celebrity trainer, Harley Pasternak. His weight lose regime for her includes eating healthy, getting lots of sleep and walking anywhere between 6 000 to 14 000 steps a day.
