The “Flip My Hair” singer went on to write in response to another social media user: “Poor Eric mentioned nicely he was tired of seeing me and my old maternity panties LOL.”

Jessie and the former professional football player, 33, have been quarantining at home amid the coronavirus pandemic with their three little ones — Vivianne, 6, Eric, 4, and Forrest, 2. The couple have celebrated four birthdays while social distancing, documenting their parties on Instagram, from Forrest’s homemade cards to his sister’s cake.

As for the Just Feed Me author, Jessie enjoyed a cookie cake and pink decorations on her big day. “Felt so much love today!” she captioned an April 12 slideshow. “Thanks so much for all the happy birthday wishes. Y’all made me feel real special. Even though we are all at home these days I can’t say I would have had it any other way.”
