Jessica Simpson covers the February 2014 issue of Redbook
. Jessica wears a floral print dress in the cover photo shot by Matt Jones. In the interview
, she talks about the media attacking her weight while she was pregnant and what it takes to make a marriage work.
On Criticism of Her Weight in the Media
: "I never listen to it, no matter who the press talks about when they're pregnant. It's ridiculous and unfair. I think any woman who is pregnant and creating a life is pretty much entitled to eat whatever she wants as long as she's healthy. I wasn't going to let the media take away from what was one of the happiest times in my life."
On What it Takes to Have a Healthy Marriage
: "I've learned that sometimes love is not enough. You can have a soul mate and be madly in love with that person, but it's not necessarily enough. I think you have to have personalities that mesh well. You have to be the yin to their yang. You also have to be open to figuring things out together and communicating - even when it's the last thing you want to do."
