Jessica Simpson's family just keeps on growing! The singer and actress recently announced that she is expecting her third child with husband Eric Johnson and even revealed her little one's gender in an adorable Instagram announcement.

“SURPRISE..., ” Simpson teased on Instagram, captioning a photo of her two children, Ace Knute, 5, and Maxwell “Maxi” Drew, 6, holding two massive balloons.

Simpson added a second photo shortly after of her children standing in a sea of pink balloons. “This little baby girl will make us a family of five," she wrote. "We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life.”

Simpson and Johnson began dating in May 2010 and tied the knot three years later in July 2014. The two welcomed their daughter, Maxwell, in May 2012, and their son, Ace, in June 2013.

Last year, Simpson stated that she didn't think she'd have a third child during a guest appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show . “I have two beautiful children, and I’m not having a third,” she said in May 2017. “They’re too cute," she added of her little ones. "You can’t top that.”

But in April of this year, the soon-to-be mom of three joked that she and her husband still have "baby fever" every now and 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,'" Simpson explained to Entertainment Tonight. "My daughter [already] thinks she's a teenager. My son at least wants to be a baby still."

Congratulations to the now family of five!
