Don't raise a spoiled kid. Keep this thought in mind: Every child is a treasure, but no child is the center of the universe. Teach him accordingly.

A pregnant Jessica Simpson looked resplendent in white lace and a crown of flowers at her blossom-themed baby shower this weekend under a neon sign that read "Birdie's Nest."

That neon sign was our sign that Simpson Baby No. 3, a daughter, has a name. Birdie.

This is according to a person aware of the name but not authorized to comment publicly to USA TODAY.

In anfrom her shower, the 38-year-old singer and fashion entrepreneur is seen surrounded by daughter Maxwell, 6; mom Tina; sister Ashlee, and Ashlee's daughter, Jagger, 3.

Simpson and husband Eric Johnson also have a son, Ace, 5.

People had opinions

The unusual name isn't that uncommon in Hollywood. It's the name of Busy Philipps' 10-year-old daughter and the 1-year-old daughter of Brie Bella of "Total Bellas."

People on Instagram weighed in on Simpson's photo and the name, which they guessed from the sign:

  • blondeandblue6: "Beautiful. The name. The picture. The moment." ❤️
  • eaglesfan844: "Please don’t let that be the name." 😩
  • cambeckman "If Birdie is your baby’s name, I love it! I have a friend whose daughter’s name is Avery and they call her Birdie around family and friends. Wishing you an easy delivery." ❤️
  • belle_ame1026: "While Birdie is an old Southern name often given to women it's hokey sounding, too corny to fit today. Jessica, think about your daughter having to go through life with such a ridiculous name!! Name her something elegant and pretty."

Pick your battles. Kids can't absorb too many rules without turning off completely. Forget arguing about little stuff like fashion choices and occasional potty language. Focus on the things that really matter - that means no hitting, rude talk, or lying.

Simpson's crazy week

First, Simpson alarmed people with her swollen foot photo. She sought help from her 4.4 million Instagram followers for that common pregnancy problem.

Then she turned around and used that photo to win the #10yearchallenge, in which people (mostly celebrities) take photos decades apart to show how little they've changed. And with her foot photo, she made us all laugh. Check it out.
