London - “Motherhood is a dream” for Jessica Simpson.

The singer-and-actress gave birth to daughter Maxwell four months ago and is loving every minute of being a mother.

Speaking on Katie Couric’s new talk show ‘Katie’ on Monday (10.09.12), she said: "Motherhood is a dream. It really is absolutely amazing. [Maxwell] had her first flight yesterday. Did not sleep! She didn't cry. She just wanted to babble."

One reason why Jessica is finding first time motherhood so easy is because she believes her fiance Eric Johnson is the “best dad in the world” so she can always turn to him for help and advice.

She explained: "People call him the best dad in the world. Even my dad calls him that! He can do everything. He can change every diaper . . . he's just a very peaceful person."

Jessica has signed a four million dollar deal with Weight Watchers to drop her baby weight and while she says she still has 10 pounds to go, the star finds it easy to incorporate exercise into her day because she brings Maxwell with her.

She explained: “I basically take her with me, whether it’s strapping her on me or strolling around the neighbourhood.” - Bang Showbiz
