Jessica Simpson Announces Third Pregnancy With Husband Eric Johnson

Congratulations are in order for former pop star Jessica Simpson and her husband, former NFL player Eric Johnson!

On Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018, Simpson took to Instagram to reveal that she is pregnant with their third child. First, she shared a photo of her two children, 6-year-old daughter Maxwell and 5-year-old son Ace, outside with two big black-and-white balloons. Then, in a second post, Simpson showed dozens of pink balloons that presumably were released after popping the two large balloons, and she officially announced the big news that she is expecting another daughter. "This little baby girl will make us a family of five," the pop star-turned-fashion mogul wrote in the post's caption. "We couldn't be happier to announce this precious blessing of life."

News of Simpson's pregnancy may surprise fans, as she's been vocal about not wanting any more kids in the future. Speaking with Ellen DeGeneres in May 2017, Simpson said, "We got an IUD, nothing is going to get into that uterus." She added, "I have two beautiful children and I'm not having a third. They're too cute! ... You really can't top that."

Simpson, however, later hinted that she and Johnson, whom she married in July 2014, weren't totally against the idea of expanding their family — though she remained adamant that it'd be unlikely. "We always practice," Simpson joked to Entertainment Tonight in April 2018. "But it would definitely have to be a miracle."

Chatting with Us Weekly in May 2018, Simpson shared just how much being a mother has meant to her. "Being a mother is the best opportunity and challenge I've ever been blessed with in life," she said. The "I Wanna Love You Forever" singer noted, "These little innocent kids teach me so much about life."

Simpson isn't the only music industry star to share news of a pregnancy in recent months. In June 2018, Hilary Duff revealed that she was expecting a baby girl with boyfriend Matthew Koma. Then in August, Carrie Underwood announced that she was pregnant with her second kid with former professional hockey player Mike Fisher.

Congrats to all these ladies on their pregnancies! We can't wait to meet their little ones!
