Congratulations are in order! On Tuesday, March 19, Jessica Simpson gave birth to her third child, Life & Style can confirm. The “Irresistible” singer, 38, and her hubby, Eric Johnson, named their newborn baby girl Birdie Mae.
“Birdie Mae Johnson, 3.19.19, 10 pounds 13 ounces,” she wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a sweet black and white photo of the newborn holding hands with one of her other children. Now, Jess’s friends and family have flocked to social media to share their well-wishes.
“Welcome to the world baby Birdie,” Busy Phillips wrote, along with three heart emojis. “I am always happier for you than literally anyone I actually know!! I root for you forever!!” added actress Lena Dunham. Fellow blonde bombshell January Jones chimed in with, “Awww!!! Yay!!!,” but perhaps the sweetest comment of all came from Jessica’s mom, Tina Ann Drew.
“Our beautiful blessing Birdie Mae, welcome to the tribe!! We love [you] more than all the moon and stars in the heavens!!!!” *Pauses to wipe tears.* Is there anything sweeter than a mother celebrating her daughter giving birth? It’s the circle of life at its finest, people!
As unpredictable as labor can be, there was little double that Jessica had much longer to go. After all, on the very same day she gave birth, the former reality star shared a seriously jarring snapshot of her pregnant belly in a bikini. Of course, we aren’t shaming the proud mama whatsoever, but golly, she was ready to P-O-P.
Even so, she remained in good spirits to the very end. Jessica even broke out a hysterical pun. “Jess-tation,” the A-lister captioned the post. Girl, you sure you don’t want a job in online media? Kidding, obviously! Seeing as Jessica and Eric, 39, are now parents to three kiddos — the pair has a daughter, Maxwell Drew, 6, and a son, Ace Knute Johnson, 5 — we bet the only thing they’ll be doing for the next few months is changing diapers and sneaking in naps every second they get.
