Jessica Simpson's ample breasts became a bit of a trademark as she aged in the pop culture scene, but there was a moment when she thought about altering her assets and going under the knife.
"My boobs just have their own life, they have a way of making themselves present," she told Women's Health magazine for its September 2016 cover. "I thought I was going to get a breast reduction."
It was a life-altering moment that made her embrace her curvy figure, and, in turn, make her husband, former NFLer Eric Johnson, happy.
"After having kids, I look at myself, and I'm like, 'You know what, my boobs are actually really big, but I like how they are,'" she said. "They're an asset, and Eric loves them still."
On the newest cover of the mag, Jessica's breasts appear well contained in a black cleavage-bearing top and matching short shorts that showed off her much-discussed legs. Her flat stomach, though, is bound to give just everybody ab envy.
"I'm hard on myself. I believe everything is a work in progress. But that's OK," she told the mag. "I do love my legs, but my favorite attribute is my nose, because it's not perfect. But recently, since I've worked out so hard, I'm also loving my stomach — knowing I grew babies in it, and then having to go through a transformation and just owning it."
Unlike many fitness-oriented celebrities, Jessica doesn't often use her social media to hype up her workouts, instead choosing to to share moments with her children, daughter Maxwell, 4, and son Ace, 3.
Every now and again she will post an image of her breaking a sweat. Last year she shared an image of her lunging to promote her fashion line, The Jessica Simpson Collection. But, lunging is something she is not exactly a fan of.
"I give myself so many excuses not to get on the treadmill, to not do that lunge," she said. "Workouts are an emotional experience. I exercise to clear my head. It makes me stronger on every level."
