Jessica Simpson’s ankles have returned to normal size after swelling up while she was pregnant.
The singer and fashion mogul took to Instagram in January to share that she was struggling to walk while expecting her third child with husband Eric Johnson and uploaded a snap of her seriously swollen left foot before begging her 4.7 million followers for remedies.
Jessica welcomed daughter Birdie Mae in March, a sibling for daughter Maxwell, seven, and five-year-old son Ace, and she returned to social media on Tuesday to post a picture of her right leg.
“I spy….my ankles!!!!” the 38-year-old captioned the photo.
The update quickly drew attention from Jessica’s celebrity followers, including reality TV star Kyle Richards who commented, “They’re back!!!!,” and singer Jessie James Decker, who wrote, “HOT,” alongside a string of flame emojis.
In addition, the mother-of-three’s trainer Harley Pasternak added, “Soooooo proud!!!”
Jessica had a tough time during her third pregnancy as she battled sciatica pain, anxiety, insomnia, and bronchitis, with the lung infection causing her to spend a week in hospital.
She also had a caesarean section with Birdie, and later took to Instagram to explain that the recover from the surgery was “no joke” and that she was relying on her husband and children to help her with the newborn.
“Recovering from a C-section is no joke,” the I Wanna Love You Forever star captioned a photo of her eldest children. “I’m feeling thankful for these two older siblings looking over their new baby sister.”
Reflecting on the nature of the operation, the new mum continued, “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.”
