This will be Ashlee's third child, but before we get into the details of her pregnancy, here's what we know about the singer's blended family.

Ashlee Simpson had her first child in 2008 with Pete Wentz.

Their marriage was plagued by rumors, which led to a messy breakup. But despite this, they're now on good terms and they share custody of Bronx. According to reports, the artist even takes his son along with him when he goes on tour.

"[Ashlee and Evan] are both communicative and easy-going," he continued. "For Bronx, it’s basically the only life he’s really known. So it’s normal to him, and he’s really good at it. Our schedules can be crazy, so we’ve been good about making sure Bronx has balance." 

Ashlee also echoed his sentiments, explaining that they were all lucky to be on such great terms. She said: "I think the fact that there is a lot of respect amongst all of us, that it makes it easy. And we're all really close friends, and it's easy, it's nice. We got really lucky with that."

The actress didn't share any details, including a due date or how far along she was. However, she and Evan took the opportunity to raise awareness about pregnant women who are being impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. They mentioned their support of the March of Dimes Mom and Baby COVID-19 Intervention and Support Fund, which aims to support moms and babies who are at greater risk of becoming sick.

While this is certainly a difficult time for mothers and babies, it's encouraging to see how the couple is using their platforms to help. As for their own pregnancy, it looks like we'll have to wait and see when they'll be welcoming their cute little tot. Congrats to the happy couple!
