Jessica Simpson is a mom again! The star revealed on Instagram that she gave birth to her third child, Birdie Mae Johnson, on March 19. The newborn weighed 10 pounds, 13 ounces at birth.
The pop star and former reality TV star has two other children with husband Eric Johnson: son Ace Knute, 5, and daughter Maxwell “Maxi” Drew, 6. Jessica’s third pregnancy was reportedly a tough one, in which she was hospitalized several times, including for bronchitis just a few weeks ago.
Earlier this week, a representative for the family told Entertainment Tonight that the star couldn’t wait for baby Birdie to be born. “Jessica is definitely uncomfortable,” the insider told the website. “This has been a tough pregnancy but she knows it will all be worth it when she's holding that little baby. Her hospital bags are packed. Everyone is trying to be patient, but the family is so excited and counting the minutes until the baby is here.”
On Monday, just before Birdie was born, Jessica took a hilarious Instagram snap of herself with the caption “Jess-tation.” We’re sure she and Eric are thrilled that baby Birdie is finally here!
Jessica and Eric, who is a retired NFL player, started dating in May 2000 and announced they were engaged that November. The two married in 2014. Jessica was previously married to former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey, who she divorced in 2006.
