Today Jessica Simpson shared a sweet picture of herself with fiancé Eric Johnson and their daughter, Maxwell, celebrating the Fourth of July yesterday. She added, "Hope everyone had a great 4th!!" The family of three marked the festive holiday by watching fireworks together, and Jessica got in the American spirit with a red Wildfox sweater. Maxwell witnessed her first Independence Day at just 2 months old, though she's already been out and about. Jessica snapped a fun photo while they were on a walk around their LA neighborhood last month. It's been a fun few months for Jessica and Eric, and there's even more excitement to come since Jess's 32nd birthday is coming up on July 10.

Taylor Swift boarded a boat with a large group at the Hyannis Port Yacht Club today. She wore a retro bikini top and was surrounded by members of the Kennedy family, including Robert Jr., Ethel, and Rory. Taylor apparently has a history with the Kennedys since Rory invited her to the Sundance screening of Ethel in January after finding out how interested Taylor was in her mother, Ethel. There may have been another reason Taylor spent Fourth of July week with the famous family, since Patrick Schwarzenegger was also on hand. Taylor and Patrick were spotted together sharing a sweet walk on the beach as a duo on Independence Day. Patrick even tweeted, "Had such an amazing day. Best 4th of July I could ask for. Hope everyone had a great day!"
