Jessica Simpson Wants Kids by The Time She’s 40

Jessica SimpsonJESSICA Simpson hopes to be a mom by the time she’s 40.

The singer/actress, 29, says she’d “love” to have kids.

“By ten years I would love to be a mom, I would love just to be in love and be a mom,” she said.

“It sounds simple but it’s a lot harder [ than you think.] I’m pretty picky.”

Simpson said hitting the road for her reality series The Price of Beauty helped her battle her own demons.

“I personally needed it for myself after going through all the scrutiny I went through for gaining a couple of pounds,” she said. It was really hard on me and I felt I needed to find some light in the very dark place I was in.

“I realized that people’s judgments about me and about my weight are really just none of my business, it’s not something I should be listening to or taking to heart. People can say whatever they want to say and I cannot take it personally. I know it’s the business I am in and I put myself in a position to be criticized, but I’ve found something that will help me deal.”

Jessica — who is divorced from singer Nick Lachey and has previously dated musician John Mayer and sportsman Tony Romorecently insisted she doesn’t need a man to validate her.

“It’s important for women not to find their confidence in a man,” she said earlier this month. “I think you really have to know who you are before you can truly fall in love and give your all, and I don’t think a man can define you. You have to own that.

“So if you’re ever with anyone who says you should change something about yourself then they should never fall in love with you in the first place.”
