Jessica Simpson just broke the news that she is expecting her third child. The popular singer proudly showed off her baby bump on social media.
On her Instagram account, Simpson revealed two photos her 5-year-old son, Ace, and her 6-year-old daughter, Maxwell, with pink balloons signifying that they will have another baby girl. Simpson married Eric Johnson, 39, a former NFL player.
Jessica Simpson's Growing Family
"This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn't be happier to announce this precious blessing of life," she captioned her photo.
The pregnancy possibly came as a surprise to the singer. Notably, she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May last year where she shared that she is not planning on having more kids.
In fact, she got an IUD. Three years ago, the singer also stated that she was not rushing to grow her family.
"Nothing's gonna get in that uterus. I have two beautiful children. I'm not having a third," she said.
Despite this, she might have had a change of heart. She told Entertainment Tonight in April that although she was having baby fever, having another child would be a miracle.
"My daughter is about to turn 6, May 1 is her birthday, and my son is going to turn 5 on June 30 and it's just like, 'Wait, so this is no longer toddler, this is full-on kid,'", she stated. "My daughter [already] thinks she's a teenager. My son at least wants to be a baby still."
A Blessing For The Celebrity Couple
The couple announced the good news just in time for Johnson's 39th birthday. The famous music icon even celebrated her husband's birthday online as the posted a photo of him holding their two children.
Simpson had her first child in 2012, followed by another one a year later. She and her husband got engaged in 2010 and married in July four years later.
Now, Simpson has taken a break from singing to run her fashion line. According to her, she does not have time to work in the recording studio because she is too focused on taking care of her family and her brand.
Currently, she is running Jessica Simpson Collection, her new fashion line, which offers beauty products, handbags, perfumes, clothes, and shoes. Her business earns $1 billion each year.
The former singer added that something she does not like about bearing a child is the fat shaming that she gets from the tabloids. She even shared about how she was shamed for her figure when she was carrying her first child.
