Jessica Simpson is desperate to have another baby with husband Eric Johnson, but sources say she needs to stay on the straight and narrow path first - according to a report today in US Star magazine.
“Jessica is serious about having one more child and is just trying to figure out exactly when,” a source tells the magazine. “Jessica knows there’s never been a perfect time to have a kid, but she’s 37 and feels like the clock is ticking.”
Jessica and Eric, also 37, already have daughter Maxwell, 5, and son Ace 4.
And even though the former reality star-turned-designer is busy with her clothing line and other entrepreneurial ventures, she doesn’t want to waste time giving them a sibling.
Eric may not be totally on board, and the source explains, “he feels like they just emerged from the ‘baby fog’. The kids are in school now, so he and Jess finally have some time to themselves and room to breathe.”
Then there’s his passion for golf, which he plays three times a week with his buddies, according to Star.
But sources tell the magazine Jessica may need to deal with another hitch first – her drinking.
“People are wondering if Jessica has a problem,” says the source, pointing to her bizarre appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May and her antics last month during a trip to NYC.
“She definitely didn’t look sober,” one eyewitness who saw her stagger inside The Bowery Hotel.
She apparently continued the party on the plane ride back to L.A., Star reports.
“If Jess wants another baby, she will have to seriously clean up her act because having another at her age could be tough enough,” says Star’s source.
