“We are pregnant and we are so excited to share it with everyone. Baby #3,” the 25-year-old singer-songwriter and actress captioned her post, whereas Ross wrote alongside his, “The fam is growing. ♥️ Ash and I can’t wait to welcome the newest addition.”
The couple celebrated five years of marriage in August 2019, with Simpson Ross sharing a sweet tribute to their relationship on Instagram.
“Happy Anniversary my love 😍 it has been the best 3 years of my life ❤️,” she captioned her throwback photo of the pair kissing on their wedding day.
“I love knowing that I get to wake up next to you for the rest of my life,” she added. “Thanks for giving me the best love.”
At this time, it’s hard to tell whom the new baby will take after, but considering the very distinct personalities of Simpson Ross’ two children, it will definitely be a surprise to them!
“She’s definitely different than Bronx,” Simpson Ross told PEOPLE of Jagger in December 2016. “Bronx was an easy sleeper. She’s like, ‘Nuh uh, Mama. I want to stay up and stay up next to you!’ ”
However, that “little bit of toughness” is something the mom-to-be treasures deeply about her daughter. “I think it’s good for a girl,” Simpson Ross said of Jagger’s personality. “I’m excited.”
