Jessica Simpson posted an adorable pic of her youngest daughter, Birdie Mae Johnson, on Instagram. In a new post shared with the 5.5 million followers on her social media page, the mom-of-three teased that her baby Birdie having a “Marilyn” moment” that goes back 65 years.
In the adorable picture, which can be seen below, the 1-year-old daughter of Jessica and her husband, Eric Johnson, was pictured standing over an air conditioner grate as her red and white gingham sundress blew up and showed her bloomers. The too-cute toddler gaped her mouth open in surprise as she held on to her dress and looked straight at the camera.
In the caption, Jessica gave a nod to the memorable Marilyn Monroe scene from the 1955 movie The Seven Year Itch, when the screen siren famously stood over a Manhattan subway grate as her dress blew up. The image of the legendary blonde in her white dress is regarded as of the most iconic moments in pop culture history.
Birdie’s impromptu remake of the famous movie moment received more than 62,000 likes and almost 700 comments within hours of Jessica posting it on Instagram.
In the comments section, fans and celebrity friends couldn’t get over how cute her daughter looked as she inadvertently channeled the legendary Hollywood star.
“I said the same thing when I saw this!! Great minds!” one fan wrote of the Marilyn comparison.
“This is a priceless moment captured in time!” another added. “Now make it black and white pic and you’ll really be wowed. She’s beautiful.”
Other fans compared Birdie to another beloved movie icon from decades past.
“Awww little Shirley Temple,” one of them wrote.
Yet another social media user recalled a famous suntan lotion ad from back in the day.
“She looks like the Coppertone ad in the 1970s,” the follower noted.
Of course, as with most of Jessica’s photos of her kids, the majority of commenters thought Birdie looked just like her famous mama. Multiple fans described the baby as Jessica’s “twin” or “mini-me.” The singer and fashion designer is also mom to Maxie Drew, 8, and Ace Knute, 7.
The new photo comes a few days after Jessica shared another snap of Birdie that showed the toddler lounging in an oversized leather chair while visiting her “Gigi’s house.” Jessica tagged her mom, Tina Simpson, in the sweet post that featured Birdie chilling at her grandma’s house.
