As it turns out singer and designer Jessica Simpson’s youngest child Birdie Mae is a total daddy’s girl. The proud mom of three talked about her youngest in a recent interview.
The star chatted with People about her baby’s upcoming first birthday and her love for her dad, Eric Johnson. “She is definitely a daddy’s girl,” shared Jessica.
“I have to make sure he doesn’t walk in the room so I can have time with Birdie. She’ll just want Eric because Eric is so big and he can make her fly around the room. I’m like, ‘mom is not that tall’ and I can’t do that!”
Jessica Simpson Talks About Her Youngest Daughter Birdie Being a Daddy’s Girl
The author of Open Book discussed how quickly her youngest child is growing up. “She’s about to be 1. I can’t believe it. I don’t want her to grow up too fast. She’s already crawling around everywhere and now she trying to walk and I’m like ‘hold on, hold on, just keep crawling.’”
The singer is excited that little Birdie already has a love of music. “She loves music and I think it’s because I was in a very creative mode and I wrote the book while I was pregnant with her and I also was singing.”
Simpson continued, “With my other kiddos, I totally took a break from life and just wanted to create life and live a normal life. Birdie has this whole vibe about her. I literally call her my little songbird.”
In fact, the almost-1-year-old is a fan of her aunt Ashlee Simpson’s music. “Even this morning, she was like ‘La la la la la’ and I was trying to get her to sing my sister’s song.”
The mom-of-three also couldn’t stop gushing about Eric’s ability to be a patient and doting father. Simpson said of her beloved husband:
“We all want Eric’s time so he’s very good at splitting up the time between all four of us. My son, literally is always like, ‘Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad.‘ I’m like, ‘Eric, how are you not going crazy?’ He never gets frustrated. He is just so patient with them. And he’s always trying to find a way to make learning fun and exciting.”
“The way that he shows his love and affection is one of the sexiest things in the world,” she adds. We can’t wait to see what this couple has in store for their little songbird’s first birthday!
