Double digits! Jessica Simpson‘s daughter Maxwell celebrated her 10th birthday bash in style — with a few notable BFFs in attendance.
The 41-year-old designer shared a glimpse of her eldest child’s party via her Instagram Story on Wednesday, May 4, one day after Maxwell turned 10. One photo showed the Dukes of Hazzard star’s daughter sitting in the bed of a pickup truck on a pink blanket alongside Kim Kardashian Kanye West‘s daughter North, 8. Kourtney Kardashian Scott Disick‘s 9-year-old daughter, Penelope, gave Maxwell a hug in a second snap.
Simpson — who also shares son Ace, 8, and daughter Birdie, 3, with husband Eric Johnson — gushed over the birthday girl in a lengthy Instagram post on Tuesday, May 3. “How is my first born, best news of my life, and best friend already 10yrs old?!?” the actress wrote, sharing a photo of Maxwell surrounded by stuffed toys. “We had a magical weekend following her lead of rotating friends and family. She begged God to stop her from growing up and to give her the chance to regain her 5 year old self. She told everyone that she turned 5 and it filled my heart with so much gratitude for this beautiful and precious LOVER OF LIFE, God, her angels (yes, she is the soul that talks to angels and feels them everywhere), family, friends, animals, every creature big and small, all things cozy and fluffy to wear and cuddle.”
The “Irresistible” singer felt proud that her child “knows what she wants” and can communicate her needs, adding, “Maxi can transform anyones subconscious random judgements or biased opinions in less than 3 minutes. It blows me away every day. She is a leader without ego and a bleeding heart that inspires, loves deeply and for ever. She is beautiful, funny, kind, caring, thoughtful, patient, supportive, kind, loving, quick, hopeful, understanding and creative. When we pray before bed (my eternal prayer partner 😇) I can feel her heart illuminating into heaven. I can feel her sitting with God just to make sure He hears it all.”
As she celebrated her not-so-little one (and her love for Squishmallows Plush Toys), Simpson concluded, “Even though Maxwell wanted to turn back time to be a kid forever with dreams of squishmallows covering her bed, she is now double digits, wise behind [sic]She is a woman of many years, making cuddles and squishmallows trendy and stylish. I woke up this morn and she gave me about 10 because that is her. Gives, gives, and gives. She is a child who will give you your childhood back to keep. Maxwell Drew Johnson is THE PERFECT TEN and MY VERY BEST FRIEND!!”
