Jessica Simpson has revealed the real reason why she hasn’t had a drink since 2017.
It was back in January that the singer first talked about her sobriety in her memoir, Open Book, but now in a new interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the 39-year-old said it had everything to do with her eldest kids, daughter Maxwell, seven, and son Ace, six.
“I was at a place where I was literally spiralling with the alcohol and I was missing out on moments with my children,” Simpson told the audience.
“I just wanted to be present and have clarity and be a good role model for my children,” she continued. “It got to the point where all of my life has escalated and I couldn’t suppress it. And alcohol, it wasn’t working. It was making me completely check out.”
Simpson and husband, former NFL star Eric Johnson, welcomed their third child, daughter Birdie, in May 2019.
