Jessica Simpson may be catching a lot of flak recently for her baby weight gain and the slow (and completely normal) losing of it, but we love her anyway – and maybe even more. Why? Not only is she gorgeous, has an awesome voice and is married to football player Eric Johnson (go San Francisco 49ers), she isn’t afraid to put herself out there and be as normal of a person as a celebrity can be.
Case in point, she’s been upfront that she indulged her pregnancy cravings (even putting butter on Pop Tarts) and is taking her time to lose the weight, keeping the baby’s best interests as the priority. While many other celebs freakishly bounce back to their pre-baby weight within a month or hide out away from  the cameras until they do, Jessica isn’t having any of that – she’s been spotted many times out and about with her family. Not the most recent sighting obviously, but one of our favorites, is this family photo of the proud parents with their 2-month old baby girl Maxwell as they took in a firework show for July 4th 2012. What a beautiful family they make posing behind a backdrop of fireworks!
