Jessica Simpson Dresses Maxwell in Teeny Bikini & the Backlash Is Mind-Boggling

Eye Roll 294

maxwell drew bikiniOh. My. God!! Everybody's talking about Jessica Simpson's appearance on Katie Couric's new talk show, Katie -- not just because of the star's big "post-baby body" reveal, but for another baby body: 4-month-old Maxwell Drew, looking unbelievably adorable in a teeny yellow bikini. HOW CUTE IS THIS BABY?! Those cheeks! Those legs! I could eat her up, oh yes I could! But would you believe that people are criticizing Simpson for showing off this snapshot to Couric ... because they think it's inappropriate?! Oh for Pete's sake, people, really?!

First of all, completely decent, non-pervert types have been photographing babies in the buff for ages -- even my grandmother proudly displayed posed professional pictures on the wall of her kids as babies, lying on their tummies, bums bare (and no one ever accused that woman of being anything less than uber-conservative, let me tell you).

Second of all, if you really want to read THAT much into the picture, you could say Simpson was making a joke about trading her swimsuit model past for new motherhood, or that because the bikini is crocheted like an old-fashioned bathing suit, Simpson is calling for a return to old-fashioned values, or that Maxwell Drew's baby mohawk is an anti-establishment statement against modern beauty standards.

OR you could say, "OH MY GOD, look at that adorable baby in her cute yellow bikini!"

Sheesh. The world needs to get a grip.

Do you think it's such a big deal that Jessica Simpson dressed her baby in a bikini?

People LOOOVE to hate on moms, especially famous ones. That baby is fricking adorable, and I put my little baby girl in bikinis at that age too. It doesn't matter what you do, SOMEBODY will find fault with it.

Haha propped her in a playboy position ? Or she just is four months old and can't sit up on her own. Babies swim naked or in diapers. Do people flip about that ?

How is that a sexy pose? Looks like a semi-normal pose to me. people are so.judgemental,.get a life and mind your own business. Maxwell looks adorable.

I have 7 kids and was a children's photographer for 10 years the pose is not only not a normal pose but it is not easy to hold a baby who is moving around by 1 hand/arm. I don't have 1 picture of my kids in a pose like that.

The baby is very cute. The bikini and pose come along with the life style of a "star/sex symbol" parent. With as many crazy people who are out there I would never plater pictures of my kid if I was her.

Again baby is very cute and I do like Jessica Simpson.

I have several naked baby pics of my daughter. I'm saving them for embarressing her when she starts dating though. ;) Its a cute baby pic, that's all. there are some baby bikini's out there that are just adorable, its the ones for the older toddler to almost teen that are padded that are rediculous. The yellow one is neither trying to give the baby boobs nor is trying to make the baby "sexy" so just chill.

I don't understand why people are not happy unless they have something to complain about.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with this picture of her beautiful baby girl.  I have pictures of my kids in swimsuits and in their birthday suits and there is nothing wrong with them.  If you see something dirty about naked baby pictures perhaps you should seek help because you're the one with the problem, the rest of us just see a precious baby.
