Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross’ 21-month-old daughter, Jagger, keeps them on their toes. In an interview with us, the pair exposed their most embarrassing parenting moment.
“When you’re in the beginning of parenthood, there are so many embarrassing moments,” the “Pieces of Me” singer said.
One time in particular, Simpson, and Ross, knotted to change Jagger’s diaper while on board of an airplane. “We were supposed to take the baby to the bathroom, but we thought we could do it really fast on the chair,” Ross recalled. “We were trying to be sneaky, but the stewardess was like, ‘I’m sorry, but people are really unhappy about the fact that you’re changing her diaper here.'”
Looking back, Ashlee Simpson understands their mistake. “She was such a little baby. I didn’t want to have to go in the bathroom. She was like 4 months old,” she told us. “But no, it really isn’t OK and I do know that, but my sneakiness was really embarrassing. It wasn’t so sneaky.”
The couple got married in 2014. They were afraid of potentially exposing Jagger to microorganisms in the restroom. “Bathrooms on the plane are so small. Where are you supposed to change a baby? … We were looking out for us,” Ross clarified. Simpson added, “You don’t want your kid to get sick!”
Bronx and Jagger are very similar to their parents, the kids are both into music. “He likes to write songs, and she’s into singing Moana right now. She also loves Mama D,” Simpson said, referring to her husband’s mother, music icon Diana Ross.
The couple is also working on an album together and thinking about a possible joint tour. “It’s been incredible, and we’re taking our time, but very soon you’ll be hearing something,” Evan said. “We’re making this music inspired by our love and also our life.”
