Jessica Simpson's got it all—a hot hubby, two beautiful children, a billion dollar fashion empire (that's billion with a B, y'all), and a crazy hot figure—but this mommy mogul is just getting started.

"I'm not at my peak—I hope not," she told E! News Saturday at Teen Vogue's 10th Annual Fashion University event in New York. "I still have so much more I have to do!"

Like...? She thought about this one for a sec. "I've gotten married—twice," she said, referring to her 2002 wedding to Nick Lachey and 2014 nuptials to Eric Johnson. "I've had two babies...what have I not done that I want to do? Maybe a TV show—that I create!"

And would Maxwell and Ace's hot mama be acting in her own show? "Yes," Jess answered emphatically.

The self aware star quickly caught herself. "Ego, sorry," she said with a smile. "That was a little ego!"

Jess' dreams of a scripted TV show nearly came true back in 2013, when she was set to star in an NBC sitcom inspired by her life. Producer Ben Silverman, who worked with Jessica on Fashion Star, described her as "truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops," promising audiences would be "laughing out loud."

Ultimately, the show never made it to air, but it's good to know Jess hasn't given up on those acting aspirations just yet!

She's incredibly motivated in her career pursuits, obviously, but she's fully aware what really matters most, too. "I am so in love with my family," she gushed to E! News.

Her beloved family is growing, too! Her sister Ashlee Simpson Ross is pregnant with baby No. 2—her first child with hubby Evan Ross—and Jess couldn't be any more excited. So does Jessica think the parents-to-be are ready for all that a newborn entails, and how does she think Bronx Mowgli Wentz will be as a big brother? Watch the clip above to see for yourself!
