Jessica Simpson is recovering after suffering from bronchitis.
The 38-year-old star, who's currently pregnant with her third child -- a baby girl whom she and husband Eric Johnson have decided to name Birdie -- took to Instagram on Sunday to reveal she was actually hospitalized for a week. Simpson posted a selfie wearing a hospital mask.
"After a week in the hospital for bronchitis (my fourth time in 2 months), I’m finally home!" she wrote. "Coughing with Birdie has been a crazy painful journey. I am slowly getting healthier every day. Baby girl was monitored and is doing amazing! I am on my way to healthy and counting down the days to see her sweet smile. Sending love and prayers to all the mothers who are going or have gone through this. OUCH."
