Inside Jessica Simpson’s 5-Year-Old Daughter’s Epic Mermaid Birthday Party (PHOTOS)


Jessica Simpson's daughter, Maxwell Drew, is officially 5!

The mom of two celebrated her oldest daughter's milestone birthday yesterday with an epic mermaid-themed party — and you won't believe how big she's gotten! 

Joined by her husband, Eric Johnson and their 3-year-old son, Ace Knute, the "A Public Affair" singer documented the fantasy birthday party on Instagram and it looked nothing less than magical.

In one pic, the family of four can be seen standing in front of a wall of balloons as Maxwell donned a glittery mermaid tail and a seashell bikini top. 

Jessica also got in on the mermaid fun with some metallic sunglasses that matched her daughter's ensemble.

While Jessica was all smiles at the bash, the singer got a little emotional in her captions when she suggested that her babies were growing up too fast.

"My baby Maxwell is 5 years old today. She makes everyone's life mermaid magical. Happy Birthday to our fairytale princess. Mommy, Daddy, and Ace love you with our "holy hearts" (as Max would say)," the singer captioned the photo with the hashtags,  #MerMax#MAXIDREW #canyoube5forever

In another Instagram picture, Jessica threw back to a photo of when her daughter was born. The picture, which the singer cleverly captioned "First Splash," shows baby Maxwell taking her first bath immediately after leaving her mom's womb.

In another photo posted by Jessica's dad, Joe Simpson, Maxwell can be seen sporting some blue eyeliner, blue glitter, and, of course, a  beaming smile.

While the day seemed like nothing but fun and smiles for the Simpson-Johnson family, the mom did draw criticism for her parenting — specifically, the way her daughter was dressed.

 "She's 5. Put some clothes on her. good grief," one critic said.

"Kinda sad seeing a 5 year old posing like that," another echoed. 

But, like the boss mom she is, Jessica is letting the hate roll off her shoulders. Congrats on turning 5, Maxwell!
