“Her oxygen levels were dropping. I couldn’t breathe,” Jessica said, explaining that she was struggling with bronchitis. “I was 260 pounds. She was a very big baby. We were like, ‘Just take her out.’”

Birdie was ultimately delivered via C-section in March 2019. Jessica and her husband, Eric Johnson, are also parents to 9-year-old daughter Maxwell and 8-year-old son Ace.

“This was kind of the pregnancy from hell,” she wrote in her 2020 memoir Open Book. “When I wasn’t being hospitalized for bronchitis…I was breaking a toilet seat leaning back.”
