According to OK! Magazine, the Blonde Ambition actress’ children have been offered a modeling contract with Gap Kids, but while Simpson is said to be super-excited about the offer for her kids to be a part of the fashion brands campaign, she and her husband are not seeing eye-to-eye on the offer.
“They received an offer from Gap Kids. They’re gorgeous and clearly very photogenic,” a source believed to be one of Simpson’s friends revealed to the publication — and they’re right, these kids are beautiful.
But the former American football tight end does not want his children to be thrust into the limelight at such a young age.
“Eric usually just goes along with whatever Jessica wants, but he thinks it’s important that the kids have as normal a childhood as they can, since Jess is so famous,” the source says.
We completely understand Johnson’s hesitation to let his children join the modeling world at such a young age. However, they would be far from the first celebrity tots to venture into the limelight (not that that makes it right, or wrong).
In fact, just a few months ago, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter North made her modeling debut in CR Fashion Book. Other celebrity children to embark on modeling careers include Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber, who was the face of Versace’s kids line at age 10, Victoria and David Beckham’s son Romeo, who started with Burberry at 10, and Jennifer Lopez’s twins, who made their modeling debut as the faces of Gucci’s children’s line in 2010 at age 2.
So, if Jessica Simpson gets her way, will Maxwell and Ace be next?
