Back in May 2017, Jessica Simpson, 38, told Ellen DeGeneres that she and her husband Eric Johnson were not having any more children. They are already parents to 6-year-old Maxwell and 5-year-old Ace. “We got an IUD, nothing is going to get into that uterus." Yet Jessica happily announced in September 2018 that the couple is now expecting another baby early this year.
Recently, Jessica shared a photo of her badly swollen feet in an Instagram post, asking “Any remedies? Help!!!!”
Jessica’s not alone. Most pregnant women can relate to suffering from swollen ankles. Ankle swelling is most commonly caused by increased water retention and production. The body needs more fluid during pregnancy so it holds on to more and that means edema or swelling. Ankles tend to show swelling more prominently because walking and sitting for long periods allows water to collect in the extremities.
Update 1/21/19: With just weeks away, Jessica may have revealed her daughter's name in an Instagram post from her baby shower this past weekend. She posed for the pic along with her daughter, Maxwell, sister, Ashley Simpson, Ashley's daughter Jagger Snow, and their mom, Tina, under a backdrop that read "Birdie's Nest." Incidentally, WWE Superstars Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan also named their daughter Birdie back in 2017.
