In recent years, Simpson's singing career has taken a backseat to her fashion empire. Her namesake line of clothing, accessories and shoes has become a very successful enterprise, generating roughly $750 million in sales in 2010. Simpson returned to reality TV in 2012, starring alongside John Varvatos and Nichole Richie as a mentor on the designer competition show Fashion Star, hosted by Elle Macpherson.
In 2010, Simpson began dating former American football player Eric Johnson. Two years later, on May 1, 2012, the couple welcomed their first child together, daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson. "We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received," Simpson posted on her website soon after her daughter's birth. "This has been the greatest experience of our lives."
In November 2012, Simpson announced that she was pregnant for a second time. The news led to speculation surrounding a recent deal between Simpson and Weight Watchers; after reportedly losing more than 60 pounds—weight that she attributed to her first pregnancy—in the fall of 2012, Simpson signed on to become a new spokesperson for the international weight-loss company. Referencing Simpson's anticipated weight gain, news outlets questioned whether Simpson's pregnancy is a deal-break for Weight Watchers.
Simpson and Johnson had their second child together, a baby boy named Ace Knute Johnson, on June 30, 2013. A 32-year-old Simpson delivered the baby via a scheduled C-section, according to reports.
