Singer Jessica Simpson is now the proud mom of three children after giving birth to her second daughter, Birdie Mae, on March 19.

As Dearly previously reported, Simpson and her husband, former football player Eric Johnson, are also parents to 6-year-old Maxi Drew and 5-year-old Ace Knute.

And according to her most recent update, Simpson is thriving now that Birdie has entered the world.

During the nine months she was pregnant with Birdie, Simpson experienced a lot of health issues including severely swollen ankles and feet and was hospitalized for bronchitis multiple times.

Simpson is also currently recovering from a C-section but is thriving in the breastfeeding department. She said regarding Birdie’s birth:

Recovering from a C-Section is no joke! I’m feeling thankful for these two older siblings looking over their new baby sister. I think we all get so carried away with the excitement of having a new baby that we forget that we are going in for major surgery. Then on top of that, we get home from the hospital, have to recover from the surgery, balance our new life as a parent to three kids and be a wife

However, the seasoned mom later bragged about her milk production on Instagram calling it a “success”:

Her followers flocked to the comment section of the post to congratulate the now mom of three:

You go girl! Impressive for so early on. I am 8 months in and I never pump that much.


Nice!! That’s hard for many new moms in the beginning.

Yesss mama!

This is the only thing I’ve legit ever seen on social media that’s made me jealous. What I wouldn’t have giveeeen for such a successful pump!

However, other followers also suggested that “success” can also be defined as simply having a fed baby:

Every [one] does what they need to do to feed their baby. Just remember it’s not failure if you don’t pump or breastfeed. It’s only failure if you don’t feed your baby anything at all. #fedisbest

I think success is your baby being fed no matter how you do it. The measure of success is not how much you can breastfeed, or if you can at all, just love your babies. To all the mothers reading this and struggling with breastfeeding, don’t get discouraged! It doesn’t work out for everyone.

What are your thoughts on moms showing off their breast milk?

    She feels proud that she can do and is. Credit where due,don’t think she is trying to shame others that can’t or those who choose not too.let her have her acknowledgement that she’s trying and she’s grateful she’s successful. Good for her.

    That is what HER success feels like. For a nursing/pumping mom, that’s fantastic production. People shouldn’t shame her for feeling good about herself. Geez.
