Jessica Simpson recently turned 40 and the star admitted she “freaked out” just before her birthday.
“I freaked out two months before I turned 40, not knowing that that age would even mean anything to me, but then it’s, like, oh but, 41, 42,” Simpson said during SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show” on Thursday.
“I’ve never calculated my age until now,” she continued before adding with a laugh: “I am accepting it slowly.”
