Wow, Jessica Simpson has just shared a photo of her ankles post-birth and we are in shock about the difference.

A few months ago, the celeb had the internet in a tizzy, after posting an alarming photo of her super-swollen ankles during the third trimester of her pregnancy.

Jessica turned to Instagram for advice on how to remedy her severely enlarged ankles.

“Any remedies?! Help!!!!” she captioned the pic of her incredibly swollen ankle and foot.

Any remedies?! Help!!!!

A post shared by Jessica Simpson (@jessicasimpson) on

Luckily her followers came to her rescue and provided the 38-year-old mum plenty of advice. “Get your feet above your heart. Stay hydrated and call your doctor,” one person wrote before warning her that swollen feet can also be a sign of pre-eclampsia – a potentially fatal pregnancy condition linked to high blood pressure and may also mean an early delivery.” Simpson took her swelling with a dash of humour and posted a before and after pic of her wearing some super high wedges and her swollen pregnancy foot with the caption #tenyearchallenge

New Baby ; New Ankles

Much to the relief of her fans, the famous fashion designer safely gave birth to her and husband Eric Johnson’s third child in March this year and named her Birdie Mae Johnson.

Jessica has recently shared an updated photo of her super slim legs. Her latest Instagram post was captioned: “I spy….my ankles!!!!

Followers were quick to shower Jess in lots of compliments:

“They’re back!!!!” one declared.

“and some amazing muscle tone mama”, said another.

“omg what a triumphant comeback”, the positive affirmation continued.

One follower though touched on a bit of reality.

“Ummmm… her edematous ankles during her pregnancy were from fluid overload and possible pre-eclampsia, which could’ve harmed or killed her and/or the baby. So yeah. Having normal ankles again is worth thanking God in this case.”


The famous mum has recently launched a new collection of flatties. Her shoe range currently includes wedges, booties, stilettos, and she recently launched a collection of flats, which busy mums will love.

  • Wow. Thankfully I never experienced this during my pregnancy’s. Great to see they are back to normal.


  • Wow that’s a lot of swelling she must feel so much better now.


  • Not surprisingly… time has passed and the fluid retention due to pregnancy has gone.


  • I’ve never seen this after effect of pregnancy.


  • Fluid goes after giving birth not that shocking really


  • Sometimes this happens and goes away naturally, but I would be seeking medical help to make sure it is isn’t something worse before doing nothing. Glad it all sorted it self for her.


  • Mine got worse with each pregnancy. Feet like memory foam. Don’t buy new shoes until after they go down or you’ll have to return them for a smaller size. Found that out the hard way.


  • Pregnancy is a huge wear and tear on your body! As seen in these pictures!

    • Pregnancy sure can be hard going at times.


  • Yes I had swollen ankles in the third term of my pregnancy and they were very uncomfortable almost aching.


  • Swelling is so unpleasant and potentially dangerous.
    Glad it all worked out in the end.


  • Fingers crossed i never experience anything like this


  • Pre-eclampsia can definitely be fatal. I know of 1 Mum who nearly died from it and 2 others who almost died. One of them died a few days later despite the fact the baby was “treated around the clock” one-on-one registered nurse. Not one nurse to a few babies. The toxins had passed from the Mum into the baby.


  • Ankles, hmmm I vaguely remember having those once upon a time hahah I also had a waistline and a thigh gap, one day I will have them again, today is not that day


  • Glad all went well and Birdie was delivered with no problems for either one of you. Glad the ankles have gone back to normal too


  • I’m glad it doesn’t seem to have been anything serious.
