Jessica Simpson and her husband are getting more creative about adult time as their kids get older
Jessica Simpson is coming up on a decade of marriage and sharing her secrets.
Chatting with Access at PetSafe’s Unleashed event to celebrate International Dog Day, the mom and singer, 43, opened up about coming up on a decade of marriage with husband Eric Johnson.
“It’s good to keep the romance there, even with three kids on top of our head. It’s hard, but he’ll leave me little notes, because he’ll wake up earlier than me. He’ll leave me little letters,” she shared.
“There’s a lot of things that make me like, ‘I can’t wait to get my hands on him later.’ I think you have to have those little things as a couple that are just between you two.”
“And now it’s like our kids are so old. It’s like, wow, they’re gonna walk in on hanky panky time. So like, what do we do, how do we do this? Where do we go?” she joked.

Simpson said they’re “in denial” that it has happened, “as is the child, so it’s not really been something that we’ve talked about.”
“I did just have to fill my middle child in on certain things, but luckily he didn’t walk in. I think he would stand there and be like, ‘What are you doing?’ He would literally talk to us,” she laughed.
The couple shares Birdie Mae, 4, Ace Knute, 10, and Maxwell Drew, 11.
Elsewhere in the chat, Simpson celebrated her oldest, daughter Maxwell, who is already wearing a bigger shoe size than mom and is coming close to being taller than her.
“Maxwell, she has this energy about her that is ageless. I open up to her way too much, I treat her like a best friend way too much. She will make dinner before I even get a chance to. Maxwell’s very, very responsible.”
