All the girls were out for a baby affair! Jessica Simpson took to Instagram on Saturday (Jan. 19) to give fans a glimpse of her gorgeous, floral-themed baby shower, which looked like every mom-to-be’s dream. The 38-year-old is expecting her third child, another little girl, with husband Eric Johnson, with whom she shares daughter Maxwell “Maxi” Drew , 6, and son Ace Knute, 5.
As Jessica posed with daughter Maxi in front of a neon sign that read “Birdie’s Nest,” fans were quick to guess that the new baby’s name could be Birdie! The actress’s mom, Tina Simpson, also seemed to confirm the moniker choice in a snap with her granddaughter Maxi, captioning the pic: “My oldest granddaughter #MaxiDrew and Gigi celebrating our baby Birdie!”
The pregnant star looked elegant in a flowing white lace dress and light green robe, accessorizing the look with a Coachella-worthy flower crown that was perfectly on theme. The fashion designer also shared a photo with her mother, younger sister Ashlee Simpson Ross, and Ashlee’s daughter Jagger Snow, 3, who were all dressed in florals and crowns for the celebrations.
Other guests included Jessica’s bestie, CaCee Cobb, who counted the mother-to-be as one of her bridesmaids at her 2012 wedding to Scrubs star Donald Faison, and actress Odette Annable. The rest of the baby shower carried out the theme of “Birdie,” from a menu that encouraged guests to “stuff their beaks” with a selection of Jessica’s favourite foods, including spaghetti bolognese and fried chicken, to décor that featured rustic chandeliers and overhanging flowers.
Jessica announced her pregnancy back in September with an adorable Instagram post of her kids posing with a large black balloon that the kids popped to reveal small pink balloons! The singer captioned the photo, “This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life.”
But it hasn’t been smooth sailing the entire pregnancy. Jessica hilariously took part in the #10YearChallenge on Instagram with a photo from ten years ago where she’s clad in short shorts and wedge heels next to a photo from now that shows her swollen pregnancy feet! Jessica got real about the challenges of being an expectant mom when she posted a photo of her swollen ankles asking for remedy suggestions, before she successfully tried cupping to reduce the inflammation. She cutely captioned the snap of the results: “SKANKLES aka Skinny Ankles.”
