Oh, baby! Jessica Simpson is expecting her third child with husband Eric Johnson, former San Francisco 49ers player. The “A Public Affair” singer revealed the news via Instagram on Tuesday morning with two photos. The first shows her daughter Maxwell, 6, and son Ace, 5, together with giant polka-dotted balloons. Simpson captioned the image, “SURPRISE…”
Of course, what’s a surprise without the big reveal? Simpson posted a second photo of her two kids revealing a flutter of pink balloons. She captioned the image, “This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life.”
According to Us Weekly, she told Ellen Degeneres in May 2017 that she had no plans of having another child, saying on her show, “I have two beautiful children and I’m not having a third.
