All smiles! Over the last year, Jessica Simpson has opened up about the struggles she endured with her body, alcohol and more — but she proved she's currently as happy and healthy as ever by posting a gorgeous bare-faced selfie.
"Sunny kinda mornin’," she captioned the May 6 Instagram.
"Natural beauty," commented Real Housewives star Tamra Judge, while Jessie James Decker left several heart emojis.
In another snap that she shared to her Instagram Story, the fashion designer lifted her sweatshirt's hood over her blonde locks and captioned the selfie, "Rise and shine."
Feeling confident in her own skin didn't come easily for the Open Book author, as she revealed in her shocking memoir that she was body shamed from the minute she stepped into the recording studio.
The cruel comments took a toll on her, and she started using diet pills at age 17, even though she wasn't overweight.
"I spent so many years beating myself up for an unrealistic body standard that made me feel like a failure all of the time," she recalled. "I am still a work in progress when it comes to self-criticism but now I have the tools to quiet those voices in my head when they speak up."
"There is a wonderful movement for body positivity now and the response to that portion of my story has been overwhelmingly supportive," she stated. "I don't think people always realized that there was a human being, a beating heart and working eyes with actual feelings behind those headlines and that words can hurt and stay with you for a lifetime."
The other month, the star confessed that 2020 wasn't easy for her, but being around husband Eric Johnson and their three kids — daughters Maxwell Drew, 9, and Birdie Mae, 2, and son Ace Knute, 7 — really helped lift her spirits.
"I definitely had to multitask on a whole new level this year," shared the blonde babe. "Between my kids being in school on Zoom and being a working mom, keeping the Jessica Simpson Collection running remotely and pushing through inspired ideas that became endless."
"Kids are way more resilient than we give them credit for," she noted. "In many ways, they were the peaceful force that made life precious in this trying time."
