Since Jessica Simpson dropped “I Wanna Love You Forever” in 1999, fans can’t get enough of the singer and actress turned business mogul. Twenty years later, she’s working on her most honest, soul-baring project yet with an upcoming memoir, which will be published in February 2020.
“I have been approached many times over the years about writing a book. It never felt right to me until this very moment,” said Simpson, 39. “I have always felt that one of my God-given purposes in this life is to inspire people.”
She continued: “I hope that by telling my whole story and not holding back I can help move people to walk through their fears and defeat their challenges, as I am working hard to do every day with mine. I hope readers will feel the love, laughter, tears and truth contained in every page.”
The untitled book, which will be published by Dey Street Books on Feb. 4, will dive into the joys and difficulties of Simpson’s life. The mom of three—Simpson shares Maxwell, 7, Ace, 6, and 3-month-old Birdie May with her husband, NFL tight end Eric Johnson—will also show the ways her life has been a “work in progress.”
“I have been working on [my memoir] for a while now with Harper Collins and I am really proud of it,” said Simpson. “I think people will be surprised by a lot of what they will read. I can’t wait to share it.”
