Ashlee Simpson may only be 24, but she’s got one thing older sis Jess wants: a baby.
“She’s always saying, ‘Oh, I want a baby!’ ” Simpson tells October’s Redbook, on sale Sept. 22. “Being a mom’s so empowering and incredible. I’m one of those people who believes that life brings things to you at a certain time for a certain reason, and if you just go with it, that’s where the best moments come from.”
Having her son, Bronx, not only calmed down the once wild singer-turned-actress, it also helped her mature as a person, she says.
“I’ve grown up so much,” she says. “Your body is changing, and it’s such an amazing time to feel that connection … Being pregnant was the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. Except for the cupcakes.”
When asked about whether she envies sister Jessica, 29, for her freedom as a single gal, Ashlee responds: “I really don’t.”
