Kids are key! Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross tied the knot four years ago, and told Us Weekly that they keep the magic in their marriage alive with a little help from their kids.

“Even in the time that we’re working, we look at times where we can make sure we can get away and take trips with the family,” the Hunger Games actor, 30, told Us exclusively at the Sunday, February 17, Hollywood Beauty Awards. “We take [the kids] with us. I feel like that’s how I grew up.”

He added: “My mom used to take me everywhere. … We’d be running around doing the whole thing, so I feel like, why not?”

The Ashlee and Evan reality stars welcomed their daughter, Jagger, 3, in 2015. The “Pieces of Me” singer, 34, also shares Bronx, 10, with her ex-husband Pete Wentz. Both of the little ones tagged along on tour this fall when Simpson and Ross promoted their 6-track EP, Ashlee + Evan.

Hanging with their brood isn’t the only way they keep the romance in their relationship alive, though. Simpson added that another important aspect is hitting the hay at the same time.

“As long as I can get [Ross] on my bedtime sometimes,” she told Us. “I like to go bed early.”

When it comes to growing their family, the actress revealed that they “definitely” want to have more kids.

The two-time mom told Us the same thing back in October 2018, but admitted that she didn’t know when they wanted to have another. “We’ll figure out when it’s the right time,” her husband chimed in at the time. “It might just happen. It could just happen.”

For now, their two children are keeping them entertained. The pair revealed at the Hollywood Beauty Awards that Jagger is “a little dancer” who “loves wearing dresses,” and her older brother “plays basketball” and “is so cool.”
