Jessica Simpson and her hubby, former NFL player Eric Johnson welcomed their third child together back on 19 March.
The birth of this little girl, who they named Birdie, signalled a health turnaround for her mum. Poor Jess had suffered from swollen legs and ankles, back pain, insomnia, anxiety, bronchitis and exhaustion during her pregnancy, needing to be hospitalised at one point.
Jess shared a fresh photo of baby Birdie on Instagram recently and she’s getting more adorable by the day.
“[Birdie] makes our family complete,” Jess recently told People magazine. “Someone once told me to keep in mind that everything is a phase with infants and kids … trying to remember that fact, and celebrate the small victories.”
Three-month-old Birdie is “very sweet,” “loves to be cuddled” and “is highly alert when she is awake” her mama says. “However, when this girl needs something, she makes it known!”
Jess had said her family was complete back in 2018, but life had a way of making other plans and before you knew it she’d announced that she and Eric were back for number three.
Shutting up shop?
They’re obviously thrilled that they did go for one more … and it’s not hard to see why. Birdie’s bright as a button, sporting the cutest dimples we’ve seen in a very long time.
Jess says they’re more relaxed parents now and it’s probable that – considering the health challenges she had during pregnancy – this is the last baby for this high-profile mum.
She says they’re keen to make the most of every one of these early days.
“We are trying our best to be as present as possible and enjoy every part of having a newborn,” Jess told People. “We know how fast the time goes and how precious it is.”
Of course she’s totally right. The days are long but the years are short.
