Like mother, like daughters!

On Tuesday, Jessica Simpson shared an adorable black-and-white snapshot of herself sitting between her two daughters: Maxwell "Maxi" Drew, 8½, and Birdie Mae, who turns 2 later this month. Seen smiling as the trio all sat close by one another, Simpson, 40, wrote in the caption how the cute pic came to be.

"I always tell my girls to give a smile and make someone's day and today Maxi said 'Mom and Birdie let's smile and make Daddy's day' 😍😍😍," wrote the singer and actress, who also shares son Ace Knute, 7, with her husband, Eric Johnson.

Earlier this year, while speaking with Shape, Simpson spoke candidly about her family, revealing that hearing giggles from her three children helps her decompress and enjoy her day.

"When I hear my kids cackle, it's the most healing sound," Simpson said. "It's contagious — my whole family starts giggling together, and it's like some form of happy laughing therapy."

The Open Book author also said "family is everything to me" while adding what she hopes to instill in her little ones as they grow up: "More than anything, I want to teach them morals and values and to keep them safe but not afraid."
