Jessica Simpson: Kids are so much work

Jessica Simpson has rethought her plans for a large family and will now likely stop at two children.

The singer-and-actress and her fiancé Eric Johnson welcomed their daughter Maxwell into the world in May 2012 and seven months later in December she confirmed they are expecting again.

Jessica openly admitted she was shocked to discover she was having another baby and has now revealed the prospect of the new arrival has made her reconsider her family plans.

“I really hope that it stops,” she told radio host Ryan Seacrest, after admitting both her pregnancies were a surprised.

“I think originally I had wanted three [kids] and now that I have one and another one on the way, I feel like I could stop here. It's a lot of work. Obviously it pays off and it's totally worth it, but it's a lot of responsibility. Accidents do happen!”

Jessica has been feeling tired of late, even though Maxwell is a good baby who sleeps soundly. Discussing her latest pregnancy with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres this week, the star admitted finding things hard this time around.

For now she is focusing on the positive, such as her new home. Jessica and Eric have purchased Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s former mansion and she is looking forward to giving it a revamp.

“I'm excited about it. We get the keys this week, actually,” she said. “There are some elements, some black walls that I'll be changing. There's some bats that I'll be removing.

“It's on two-and-a-half acres which will be nice. I feel like I grew up in Texas with so much land and you just don't get that in Los Angeles, so to have that will be nice."
