Jessica Simpson thrilled her fans this week when she shared a sweet Instagram snap with her two eldest children — Maxwell Drew, 7, and Ace Knute, 6. Her youngest daughter, Birdie Mae, was not featured in the picture, though it only took a short scroll down her feed for fans to get a glimpse at the precious 8-month-old
The photo was uploaded to Jessica’s page on Wednesday and was an instant hit with her 5 million followers. In the shot, the singer cradled two of her three children in her arms as they sat on a couch adorned with plush, striped pillows.
Jessica wore a black top in the snap and had her long, platinum tresses tied up in a ponytail that sat high on the crown of her head. She sported a simple makeup look that included a glossy lip and thick coat of mascara, allowing her striking features and natural beauty to shine.
Meanwhile, Maxwell and Ace both wore black-and-red jackets as that sat on their mom’s lap to pose for the camera.
The appearance of Jessica’s adorable children was not the only reason fans were delighted by her latest social media post. At the same time, the family trio also debuted the cover of her upcoming memoir, Open Book, which is set to hit shelves on February 4.
Both Maxwell and Ace held copies of the book in their hands as they smiled for the camera, showing off the gorgeous black-and-white photo of their mom that graced its cover. On a table in front of them were stacks of the tome’s title pages, autographed by Jessica.

As noted by Entertainment Tonight, Jessica announced that she had been writing a memoir this past July. Though early reports pegged the book as a tell-all about her marriage to Nick Lachey, rumors were quickly debunked that her four-year marriage to the 98 Degrees frontman would be her main topic of conversation.
