Jessica Simpson announces she’s welcomed her third child with husband Eric Johnson

Jessica Simpson has announced that she’s welcomed her third child with husband Eric Johnson.

The singer revealed the happy news on social media, with an adorable picture of daughter Maxwell holding her baby sister’s tiny hand.

She wrote in the caption: ‘We are so happy and proud to announce the birth of our perfect daughter, Birdie Mae Johnson. 3.19.19 10 Pounds 13 Ounces.’

Fans were quick to send congratulatory messages to The Dukes of Hazzard star, with many commenting on her welcoming a heavy baby.

One said: ‘10lbs!!! Healthy princess. Much congrats on your little birdie❤️’.

Another wrote: ‘Holey moley 10 pounds 13 ounces. All I can say is OuCH! Congratulations on the arrival of Birdie to the family 👶🏻❤️’.

A third added: ‘Congratulations you have a beautiful family. So happy for you.’

The mum-of-three hasn’t had an easy nine months, as she had several health problems like bronchitis and severely swollen ankles.

Alongside a picture of her looking poorly, she wrote: ‘After a week in the hospital for bronchitis (my fourth time in 2 months), I’m finally home! Coughing with Birdie has been a crazy painful journey. I am slowly getting healthier every day.

‘Baby girl was monitored and is doing amazing! 🙏🏼 I am on my way to healthy and counting down the days to see her sweet smile. Sending love and prayers to all the mothers who are going or have gone through this. OUCH.’

Jessica and Eric announced they were expecting their third child – as they already six-year-old Maxwell and five-year-old Ace – back in September, with a picture of their kids standing next to pink balloons to show they were expecting another girl.

The pair have been married since 2014, having tied the knot two years after welcoming their first child together.

The two met in 2010, and got engaged after just six months.

Congratulations to Jessica, Eric and their brood!
