Jessica Simpson Welcomes 3rd Child, Daughter, Birdie Mae

Congratulations to Jessica Simpson and her husband, former NFL quarterback, Eric Johnson on the birth of their third child on Wednesday, Birdie Mae.

Simpson announced the news about the newest arrival on her Instagram page.

“We are so happy and proud to announce the birth of our perfect daughter, Birdie Mae Johnson,” Simpson wrote captioned a black and white photo of her daughter meeting her baby sister on Instagram on Wednesday.

Baby Birdie weighed 10 lbs., 13 oz.

We love Simpson for keeping it all the way real this pregnancy by posting photos of her swollen feet, unflattering pics of her growing bulbous pregnant belly and make up less pics.

The fashion line entrepreneur even recently made fun of herself for breaking the family toilet seat.

The Dukes of Hazard reboot star has been royally rewarded by fans who have consistently commented that they are happy to see a celebrity keep it 100 about the very unglamorous aspects of pregnancy.

Congrats!

The new baby joins The Johnsons’ older kids, 5-year old son Ace Knute, 5, and 6 1/2-year old daughter Maxwell “Maxi” Drew.

Her daughter makes the third celeb we’ve “bumpwatched” to name her child Birdie!

LOVE LOVE THAT NAME !!!!

WWE and Totally Divas star Brie Bella and actress and late night talk show host Busy Phillips‘ daughters are named Birdie.

Check Out These Maxwell Johnson Inspired Kids Swimsuits

Every few years, it looks like our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Jessica Simpson  cute catches heat for sharing an Instagram pic of her little 5-year old daughter Maxwell Johnson with husband NFL quarterback Eric Johnson has in a bikini.

The singer-actress was accused of objectifying her daughter when she was a baby and again recently.

We are of the opinion that while there are pervs on the Internet that sadly and disgustingly objectify little girls, it’s too bad that people are so quick to sexualize children.

The bathing suits and bikinis that designers are making for little kids are so cute and quite stylish, even more some than some styles made for adults.

We saw some super cute ones recently released by our partners at Bikini.com.

If you have a rock star budget and a little girl too, you’re in luck!

Celeb Trend: The Band Tee Never Goes Out of Style

I LOVE a rocker or a  band tee and so do a lot of the Celeb women we have”bump watched” in the past.

Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian and her sister Kourtney Kardashian, Kate Hudson and Alessandra Ambrosio have all rocked the band tee well when snapped out and about. (See above collage)

Not only are these chic t-shirts great way to pay homage to a fave performer or band of the present or yesteryear, but they are iconic fashion items that are forever in style.



Sleeveless, long sleeved, under a denim or leather jacket, with a pair of jeans or cropped shorts, they can be mixed and matched in any  casual look.

I’ve Insta-shared pics of myself in band tees featuring The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones and more myself. (See collage below)

Cant get enough and my collection continue to grow.

I curated a selection of rockstar tees under $20 each for my budget conscious readers. Check it out: Powered by my partners at Shopstyle:

Given the #WHCD was Light on Celebs This Year, Let’s Look Back At Celebs Who Walked Its Red Carpet Pregnant

pregnant-on-white-house

The annual White House Correspondents Association dinner has increasingly been a haven for Hollywood Celebrities who walk the red carpet on their way to hob nob with journalism’s elite that cover the White House.

This year was much different.

 

The current sitting president Donald J. Trump choose to sit it out, a first time since Ronald Reagan  that a President opted to skip the event which usually features a comedian roasting the prez and the media and the pres himself giving a monologue full of self-deprecating humor.

[Even when Reagan skipped it, that was because he was shot on the way in, though to be fair other presidents who were very unpopular at the time Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon have skipped the elite dinner in the past, the only other two since Calvin Coolidge]

This year, the event was also super light on the usual parade of celebrities. That might be a good thing in the eyes of many who have heavily criticized the dinner for becoming to glamourized and Hollywoodized.  Celebrated national TV broadcast journalist Tom Brokaw famously skips it and has been vocal as to his reasons why.

Nonetheless, we usually can spot several celebrity moms we’ve covered in the past to feature on the blog. In the very recent past 8 years, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Kristen Bell, Jessica Simpson, Cynthian Nixon, Adriana Lima, Neve Campbell, Emma Watson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Regina King, Anna Chlumsky, Julianna Margulies, Katie Couric, Sofia Vergara, Shonda Rhimes, Rosario Dawson, Candace Cameron Bure, model Emily Ratajowski, Vivica A. Fox, Lupita Nyong’o, Jada Pinkett and Will Smith, Kendell Jenner, Laverne Cox, Lucy Liu, Gabrielle Union have all attended as guests of various news organizations that purchase tables.

Not this year. We didn’t see any. There were a few celebs and some of DC’s A-listers [read: TV journalists and broadcast reporters] there but that’s about it.  And with Trump declaring war on the media, the White House press corp and DC establishment, none in his administration or celebs friendly to him failed to show up as well.

So…we’re doing the next best thing and flashbacking to all the ones who did show up in years past. Interesting enough, most of them were preggers at the time!

Last year, in 2016, while pregnant with her second child, daughter, Isabella, Kerry Washington attempted to conceal her bump in an A-line one shoulder black mini Victoria Beckham mini dress.

In 2015, Glee alum Naya Rivera looked radiant in a white floor length  Tadashi Shoji evening gown and model Anne V ‘s lovely floral gown rocked that year as well.

In 2014, TODAY show anchor Savannah Guthrie was six-months pregnant with her first child when she showed up in a pink dress to the event.

Going further back, Anna Paquin was expecting her first children, a pair of twins, with husband Stephen Moyer in 2011 when she attended the event, also affectionately known as the “Nerd Prom”, wearing a chic and elegant silk jersey gown by French designer Herve L. Leroux.

That same year, Reese Witherspoon was also expecting her third child, but first with second husband Jim Toth. She also went with black in a Monique Lhuillier  gown showing her barely there bump at the time.

 

There you have it! The White House Correspondents Association dinner  has been noteworthy for Bumpwatch coverage history.

‘Power’s Naturi Naughton is Expecting Her First Child

img_3852

Singer and Actress Naturi Naughton was in middle of shooting the fourth season of her hit STARZ show Power when she discovered that she and boyfriend Ben were expecting their first child.

The original member of the now-disbanded girl group 3LW exclusively told PEOPLE that  as soon as she shared the news with the cast and crew, they went into protection mode.

“They’ve been really good at keeping it on the low, but they’re also super excited,” she says. “Omari [Hardwick], who plays my husband, we have kids on the show and he’s like, ‘Now you get to be experiencing motherhood in real life!’ Everyone’s been really supportive.”

Naughton, who is also known  for her standout role as “Lil Kim” in the Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious, said she’s been having a good pregnancy so far.

“It’s been a little surreal, but I feel really good, healthy and strong,” she told the magazine.“I feel like being pregnant and entering this new stage has made me stronger and more excited about life in general. Everything seems so much more purposeful.”

The production crew had to be creative about concealing her bump since a pregnancy wasn’t in the script.

“I had maternity jeans they ordered for me, and I do a lot of tops that are peplum-style,” says the New Jersey native who got her start singing in the same church Whitney Houston sang at in her youth. “I was amazed at how un-pregnant I could look.”

She also talked about being a healthy eater but giving into pregnancy cravings.

“I love kale, I love strawberries and pineapples, but I’m not proud of this … I’ve been eating Cup Noodles. I really want salty, spicy things, and Cup Noodles has been really awesome. I haven’t had one since college!”

After being a platinum selling artist, touring alongside Destiny’s Child, Dream, Nelly, Eve, and Jessica Simpson, and a solo artist, and having a a stage role on the Tony-award winning play “Hairspray“,  roles on Mad Men and the movie Fame a reoccurring role on The Client List opposing Jennifer Love Hewitt, Naughton is prepping for a whole new challenge when her baby arrives in July.

“It’ll just be a great summer to enjoy motherhood and this journey to motherhood,” said Naughton, who is steep in picking out nursery colors and nesting. “It’s a really amazing responsibility, but it’s such a blessing and that to me is worth more than anything I can imagine.”

Godspeed, mama!
