Jessica Simpson is feeling grateful for her family this holiday season.

On Friday, the mom of two took to Instagram to share a sweet throwback photo of her husband, former NFL player Eric Johnson, wrapping his arms around her belly as she lay in a hospital room.

“Ace being held by his Dad #aceknute,” Simpson, 36, wrote, referring to the couple’s son, Ace Knute, who was born in June 2013.

The couple also share a daughter, 4-year-old Maxwell Drew, who was born in May 2012.

The adorable family of four have spent a lot of quality time together since Simpson’s #FlashbackFriday selection. Last month, the fashion designer boarded a plane with her stylish brood, calling them her “travel buddies.”

Simpson, who recently launched a new children’s collection with Babies “R” Us, told PEOPLE in April about her fashion-forward mini me.

“Maxwell will be 4 May 1 and she might be wiser than me,” Simpson said. “She definitely has has model poses. I was never born to be a model, but my daughter, she’s just got something in her that makes people want to strike a pose.”
