The online debate began after the Dukes of Hazzard star recently announced that she has no plans to have more children. “I don’t have baby fever,” she told Us Weekly exclusively in April. “The third pregnancy for me [in 2019], that’s all. I can’t do it again. The last pregnancy was very difficult for me.”

At the time, Simpson noted that having children “later in life” was “much harder” than she expected. “It’s just something you end up accepting,” the Texas native added. “I had a wonderful child, whom I adore and love, and she rules the house. She’s definitely the most audible in the family.”
