Jessica Simpson Reveals the Easter Theme She Pulled Off to Make Her Family Smile: 'It Worked'

Jessica Simpson had a larger-than-life Easter with her family.

The Open Book author, 40, shared a photo Monday from her holiday festivities with husband Eric Johnson and their kids, daughters Birdie Mae, 2, and Maxwell Drew, 8½, plus son Ace Knute, 7½. In the pic, the family of five smile together amid a space filled with large Easter eggs and chick decorations.

The giant theme related to a movie they watched together a lot during quarantine, 1989's Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, in which a scientist accidentally alters his kids to the size of tiny bugs.

"Our favorite quarantine movie was Honey, I Shrunk the Kids…. so I wanted to create a Honey, I Shrunk the Bunny theme for Easter to make them smile. It worked 🐰," Simpson explains in her caption.

On Easter Sunday, Simpson shared a family selfie, joking alongside the sweet holiday snapshot, "He has Risen, and so have we!!! Good Lord that was an early morning 🐥"
