Jessica Simpson is finally ready to open up! The singer announced her plans to release a memoir in 2020 which will detail everything from her divorce, motherhood and building a fashion empire.
“I have always felt that one of my God-given purposes in this life is to inspire people,” Jessica, 39, told People.
“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,” she continued. “I hope readers will feel the love, laughter, tears and truth contained in every page.”
Jessica shares three children, Maxwell, Ace, and Birdie May with her husband Eric Johnson. “I have been approached many times over the years about writing a book. It never felt right to me until this very moment,” she revealed.
Prior to her marriage with Eric, she was married to Nick Lachey from 2002-2006. The press release states, “Revealing new parts of herself for the first time, Simpson opens up about her struggles, and how she learned that with the right mindset—pain can give you tools, faith can give you courage, and challenges often give way to bigger opportunities and a bigger picture.”
The singer is expected to speak about her divorce with Nick, 45, and their reality show Newlyweds, her journey to finding love with Eric, 39, raising children, and building both her music and fashion career.
Jessica said she “consistently shattered all expectations of who she was supposed to be.” The memoir is currently untitled, but it will be published by Dey Street Books.
