Ashlee Simpson has laid relatively low in the public eye for about the last decade, and understandably so. She’s busy being a mom to two young children and a wife to Evan Ross since releasing her last album, Bittersweet World, back in 2008, but the celebrity pair are ready to let the world have an inside peek at their lives with the upcoming E! reality series Ashlee and Evan.
The couple have been married since 2014 and spoke to Entertainment Tonight about how they think the docu-series will affect their marriage — or not.
“I think in any relationship in this industry, there’s a stress on relationships,” Ross said. “I think that’s reality, but in no way do I think that if a relationship is meant to be together and a marriage is meant to be together, that anything like a show or being in this industry can change that.”
Similar to how MTV’s The Ashlee Simpson Show documented the singer’s debut album, the new E! show will focus on the musical couple’s forthcoming duet album. “We decided to make this album out of love and kind of going back to duets when that was such a thing,” Simpson explained.
Ross and Simpson both have fame in the family — including Diana Ross, Tracee Ellis Ross and Jessica Simpson — but viewers will have to wait and see who the couple will feature on the show.
“There’s going to be some people that you’ll see,” Simpson hinted. “The support of our families has been wonderful.”
As for their kids, the parents detailed that although keeping them off-camera entirely would be an impossible task, they’ve been “cautious” about how much their 2-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son will be exposed.
“It’s impossible to keep them away because we’re with them every day, so they will be [in the show], but we’re strategic in how we do that,” Ross said. “We don’t overdo it with them.”
