Beautiful baby news for Jessica Simpson

"This little baby girl will make us a family of five.”

Jessica Simpson has taken to social media to share some pretty special news. The star is expecting her third child with husband, Eric Johnson … and it's a girl!

The couple, who have been married for four years share six-year-old daughter Maxwell Drew and five-year-old son Ace Knute and the announcement was a family affair.

"SURPRISE..." wrote the 38-year-old star alongside an image of Maxwell and Ace holding some huge black gender-reveal balloons.

The fashion mogul, actress and pop-star then followed with another image showing the pair with more balloons … this time pink, writing, "This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn't be happier to announce this precious blessing of life."

Fans were then treated to an image of Simpson tenderly cradling her baby bump.

Earlier this year, Simpson admitted to ET that she was having a little baby fever now that her kids are older.

Simpson gave birth to Maxwell back in 2012 with Ace's arrival following just one year later. She and former NFL player Johnson were engaged in 2010, tying the knot four years later in 2014. It looks like 2019 will be the time to shake things up a bit again.

"My daughter is about to turn 6, May 1st is her birthday, and my son is going to turn 5 on June 30th and it's just like, 'Wait, so this is no longer toddler, this is full-on kid,'" she shared with ET. "My daughter [already] thinks she's a teenager. My son at least wants to be a baby still."

"We always practice," Simpson joked about having more kids. "But it would definitely have to be a miracle."

Something Jessica is not looking forward to is the fat-shaming she has received in the media during her prior pregnancies. The famously curvy star spoke to CBS last year, mentioning the unflattering press that surrounded her first pregnancy.

"It's like, 'I'm pregnant! How could I be fat-shamed?'" she said. "It's not fair. I deserve a f** donut!"

The happy baby news follows Saturday's celebration of Johnson's 39th birthday. Simpson shared a gorgeous image of her husband holding their two children as babies. "Happy Birthday to my very best friend, Daddy to my babies, and Husband of Mine," she wrote. "I love you, forever."

This is one family that life is looking sweet for, and we can't wait to go along for the ride!
