Surprise! Jessica Simpson is expecting.
The 38-year-old pop star and fashion designer recently revealed that she is expecting her third child with her husband, former NFL player Eric Johnson. The soon-to-be mom of three made the announcement via Instagram, sharing two snaps of her gender reveal.
Jessica and Eric already have two kids, daughter Maxwell Drew, 6, and son Ace Knute, 5. In the first photo revealing their big news, the couple’s kids are excitedly holding oversized black and white polka dot balloons. “SURPRISE…,” Jessica captioned that photo.
In the second picture, Maxwell and Ace have popped a balloon, revealing smaller pink balloons inside and confirming that Jessica and Eric will be having a second daughter.
“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 the Instagram photo.
Jessica and Eric married in 2014, a little over a year after their second child was born. During her second pregnancy, the singer famously opened up about how having another child so close in age to her first (only 13 months apart!) was a total surprise.
“Apparently it was a part of God’s plan for my life,” Jessica said at the time. “I was extremely shocked. I was shocked because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica. And you know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened… all over again!”
Now that both kids are older and in school, we guess it was the right time for the couple to add to their family once again!
Congrats to Jessica and Eric, and all the best with their upcoming bundle of joy!
