Jessica Simpson Is Pregnant, Expecting a Girl With Husband Eric Johnson

Talk about taking your breath away! Jessica Simpson is pregnant with her third child, a source close to the singer confirms to Us Weekly. She shared the news that she and husband Eric Johnson are expecting her third child, a little girl, on Instagram on Tuesday, September 18. Simpson posted two photos of her kids Maxwell, 6, and Ace, 5 – in the first, they’re holding two giant black balloons. She captioned the photo with, “SURPRISE…”

The second reveals that the balloons inside the giant balloons are pink. “This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life,” the 38-year-old wrote.

Simpson previously said she had no plans to have a third child. “We got an IUD, nothing is going to get into that uterus,” she told Ellen DeGeneres in May 2017. “I have two beautiful children and I’m not having a third. They’re too cute! You can’t top that.”

However, she has always been open about how much she loves motherhood. In May, she opened up to Us Weekly exclusively about how much she’s learned from her children. “Being a mother is the best opportunity and challenge I’ve ever been blessed with in life,” she said at the time. “Right now my kids are in this amazing stage where I’m really listening to them without judgment and they’re teaching me so much. These little innocent kids teach me so much about life.”

She also noted that her husband, 38, “is more of the disciplinarian” of the two. “If my daughter asks for a dog, she gets one, and then Eric finds a way to make the dog not end up in the house,” she gushed.
