Jessica Simpson may have revealed her upcoming baby's name with the theme of her baby shower.
Simpson, who is getting ready for the arrival of her third child, shared some photos from her baby shower on Instagram captioned “Birdie’s Nest”, the event itself seemed to follow that theme as well with menus telling friends and family that “a little birdy told me... stuff your beaks.” Of course, this sparked speculation from fans thinking Birdie is the name she decided on.
Interestingly enough, the name is pretty old-timey. According to Baby Names Hub, “Birdie” reached peak popularity in 1910, but even dating back to 1880, it was pretty common. While it’s not an everyday name these days, Simpson isn’t the only celebrity to give their child that name. In fact, in 2017 WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan (real life Bryan Danielsson) and his wife, fellow wrestler and entrepreneur Brie Bella (Brianna Monique Danielson) welcomed their own Birdie to the world. Who knows, maybe the name is due for a comeback.
We don’t know how long Simpson has planned this possible name for, but she announced in September that she’s expecting her latest bundle of joy with her husband, retired NFL tight end Eric Johnson. The two have been married since 2014, but have been dating since 2010. Since then, they’ve made two other baby announcements — the first, Maxwell (or Maxi) Drew Johnson, six, and Ace Knute Johnson, five, so this isn’t her first rodeo.
Still, it seems like this hasn’t been the easiest pregnancy for the 38-year-old celebrity. She’s been pretty active on Instagram, and earlier this month she revealed she was dealing with some pretty bad ankle swelling, which she’s had to treat with cupping. It looks like it worked, as her ankle looked a lot better in her treatment photo. No pregnancy comes without adversity, however, and we’re willing to bet Simpson doesn’t need to be told that.
It doesn’t seem like she was too uncomfortable though as the series of Instagram photos, fans can see the singer, actress, and fashion designer rocking her baby bump while wearing an all-white gown and flowers in her hair surrounded by family, including her sister Ashlee and mother Tina, and Maxi. Everyone was all smiles for the event.
With all that being said, we wish Simpson all the best as she inches closer to her due date!
