Jessica Simpson is pregnant at the same time as two of her best friends — and it’s making for some amazing photographs. The 38-year-old pop-star-turned-retail-mogul shared snaps on Monday, October 22, from her pal Lauren Auslander’s baby shower in Malibu.
The singer, who is expecting baby No. 3 with her husband, Eric Johnson, showcased her belly in a skintight, long sleeve maxi dress. “Bumpinwithmybesties,” Simpson captioned one picture, in which she posed with Auslander and mom-to-be Koko Bahler.
Simpson’s daughter Maxwell, 6, attended the celebration and showed off a temporary University of Arizona tattoo on her hand!
Maxwell and brother Ace, 5, are counting down the days until the family’s newest addition makes her debut. “It’s fun because Ace and Maxwell are at an age where they understand what is happening,” a source told Us Weekly in September. “They are really cute waiting for their baby sister.”
The Dukes of Hazzard actress and the 39-year-old former NFL player, who announced their pregnancy news on September 18, traveled to New York City days later. Before flying back to California, Simpson iced her swollen feet with a frozen bag of Ore-Ida ABC shaped mashed potatoes, and posted it on Instagram Story.
While Simpson is busy with her fashion empire, she always has time for Maxwell, Ace and Eric. “My kids are 5 and 6 now, and being their mom and Eric’s wife are the best parts of my life,” she told Footwear News while in New York. “And my most current project, of course, is growing there baby in my belly. We can’t wait to meet her.”
