Jessica Simpson’s daughter, Maxwell, has an unlikely best friend: North West.
“One of Maxwell’s best friends is North,” Simpson revealed to Us Weekly on Thursday.
“She’s amazing,” the fashion designer exclaimed of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s oldest child. “She’s a great kid, and she’ll be part of a change in this world.”
Simpson, 41, shares Maxwell, 9, son Ace, 8, and daughter Birdie, 3, with husband Eric Johnson.
The “With You” singer shared that Maxwell and North became friends after playing on the same basketball team, which former NFL star Johnson, 42, coached “just recently.”
Both families live in California, with Simpson saying it’s “fun” to be in the same neighborhood as Kardashian, 41, and her four children: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm , 2 years.
“That [proximity] makes it easier,” she added.
Simpson – who had her own reality show, ‘Newlyweds,’ with ex-husband Nick Lachey long before ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ premiered – went on to praise the Skims founder’s children for staying ‘the same’ despite their childhood. public eye.
“I’m like, ‘I don’t know how you can do this all the time,'” she said of the Kardashian-Jenner family. “I could only last three seasons [on ‘Newlyweds’], but they are so open and they have always remained the same. … It’s really hard to do, and they’re powerhouses.
Simpson noted that because reality TV is more mainstream these days, it might be easier for the Kardashians than when she and Lachey, 48, had their show from 2003 to 2005.
“It was one of the first, and so it was [cameras] following me all day from the time I woke up to the time I fell asleep unless I kicked them out, but I still felt bad,” she said. “I don’t think reality TV shows are set up like that these days. I think they have shoot days and that sort of thing.
Simpson and Johnson tied the knot in July 2014, eight years after she finalized her divorce from Lachey.
