Celebrities - they’re just like us!
That usually applies to the glamorous parts of daily life, like when the papparazzi catch stars dropping their kids off at school. But for Jessica Simpson, it means she doesn’t get to skip any of the aches and pains of pregnancy just because she’s famous.
This week, the 38-year-old shared a slightly worrying photo of herself in a surgical mask from a recent hospital stay.
"After a week in the hospital for bronchitis (my fourth time in [two] months), I’m finally home!" Simpson captioned the photo.
"Coughing with Birdie," which is the name Simpson has picked out for her new baby girl, "has been a crazy painful journey."
"I am slowly getting healthier every day. Baby girl was monitored and is doing amazing! I am on my way to healthy and counting down the days to see her sweet smile. Sending love and prayers to all the mothers who are going or have gone through this. OUCH."
Along with bronchitis and painful swelling, Simpson has also been plagued by sciatica pain and acid reflux during this pregnancy.
Simpson and her husband, Eric Johnson, are at least looking on the bright side of her pregnancy troubles. The singer poked fun at herself by sharing a "Ten Year Challenge" comparison of her puffy feet and her normally svelte ankles.
The couple already share a 6-year-old daughter named Maxwell and a 5-year-old son named Ace.
