Simpson, 38, who already is raising 6-year-old daughter Maxwell and 5-year-old Ace with the NFL alum, announced the pregnancy in September. “This little baby girl will make us a family of five,” the fashion designer wrote on Instagram, captioning a pic of her kids posing beneath pink balloons. “We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life.”

She later revealed the baby girl’s name, Birdie, at a beautiful shower in January.

This third pregnancy has been particularly difficult for Simpson, who has kept fans abreast of her bouts with bronchitis (which required hospitalization), sciatica pain, swollen feet and even broken toilet seats in recent months. “The only thing that gets me through … is knowing I will get another one of these cuties,” she told Instagram followers as she shared a pic of Maxwell and Ace.

Ashlee continued: “She’s tough. We’re talking about Jessica. … I mean, every time I’m around her, I don’t see any stress.”
