Proud aunt! Ashlee Simpson’s newest niece arrived last month, and she told Us Weekly exclusively that she can’t get enough of baby Birdie.
“Little Birdie’s adorable and amazing,” the Ashlee and Evan star, 34, told Us at the album drop party for Febreze’s The Freshness on Wednesday, April 3. “She’s doing great. … She’s the cutest.”
Jessica Simpson and her husband, Eric Johnson, who already share Maxwell, 6, and Ace, 5, welcomed their third child on March 19.
Not only do Ashlee’s children, Bronx, 10, and Jagger, 3, “love” their infant cousin, but the “Pieces of Me” singer told Us that Jessica’s kids are just as infatuated with Birdie. “Best brother and sister for sure,” she said.
While the Out of the Shadow and Into the Spotlight author and her husband, Evan Ross, weren’t in the hospital room during Birdie’s birth, they visited the fashion designer, 38, afterward. Ashlee praised her older sister for being such a trooper throughout her difficult pregnancy.
“I’m so proud of her because I think pregnancy is not easy and it’s different for every woman,” she told Us. “And I think it’s really beautiful to speak out about what you’re going through with each pregnancy. … I respect it. We all need to hear that. It’s not like you get a cute bump and you’re done for her.”
The Dukes of Hazzard actress opened up to her Instagram followers all pregnancy long, documenting everything from her swollen feet and multiple bronchitis hospitalizations to extreme acid reflux and sciatica pain.
“The one thing that gets me through this pregnancy is knowing I will get another one of these cuties,” she captioned a February Instagram pic of Maxwell and Ace hugging.
Febreze released The Freshness, a compilation of the brand’s musical radio ads, last month.
