It’s impossible to tell whom the new baby will take after more at this point, but considering the very different personalities of Simpson Ross’ two kids, it will definitely be a surprise.
“She’s definitely different than Bronx,” she told PEOPLE of Jagger in December 2016. “Bronx was an easy sleeper. She’s like, ‘Nuh uh, Mama. I want to stay up and stay up next to you!’ ”
But that “little bit of toughness” is something Simpson Ross cherishes deeply about her daughter. “I think it’s good for a girl,” she said of Jagger’s outgoing nature. “I’m excited.”
