Content Editor / March 20 2019
Actress Jessica Simpson has welcomed a third child to her family, daughter Birdie Mae Johnson.
The 38-year-old shares two other children with her husband, Eric Johnson, Maxwell Drew, six, and Ace Knute, five.
The new mum took to Instagram to share the news with her 4.6m followers, sharing a photo of her older daughter holding her baby sister’s hand.
“We are so happy and proud to announce the birth of our perfect daughter, Birdie Mae Johnson. 3.19.19, 10 Pounds 13 Ounces,” Jessica wrote.
Earlier in the week, the actress had shared a photo of herself, very heavily pregnant, with the simple caption: “Jess-tation.”
According to Blast, Birdie was reportedly chosen because it is a family name, and the singer thought it sounded sweet.
Jessica did not have an easy pregnancy, suffering from swollen feet, insomnia, severe acid reflux, bronchitis, back pain and anxiety.
But looking at Birdie, we’re sure it was all worth it!
