If there's anything we can count on when it comes to celeb parents it's their baby naming skills or rather lack thereof, with the latest offering coming from singer and actress, Jessica Simpson. 

She welcomed her third child, a baby girl, this past Tuesday, 19 March, with husband Eric Johnson. 

The couple decided on the unusual name Birdie Mae for their second daughter. 

Taking to Instagram, the new mom of three shared an adorable shot of her eldest daughter, Maxwell Drew, holding her newborn sister's hand. 

"We are so happy and proud to announce the birth of our perfect daughter Birdie Mae Johnson. 3.19.19, " Jessica wrote to caption the photo. 

Jessica and Eric also have a son, 5-year-old Ace Knute, and by the looks of it, the couple has remained true to the naming standards set by celeb parents before them. 

For a reminder of just how distinctive celebs baby names have been, here's a look at the names topping the list:
