Jessica Simpson is on the mend after spending a week in the hospital recovering from bronchitis.

The singer and fashion mogul, who is pregnant with her third child, wrote on Instagram Sunday that she was home after seeking treatment for the infection.

“After a week in the hospital for bronchitis (my fourth time in 2 months), I’m finally home! Coughing with Birdie has been a crazy painful journey,” wrote Simpson, who revealed at her whimsical baby shower in January that she picked the name Birdie for her baby girl.

“I am slowly getting healthier every day,” Simpson continued. “Baby girl was monitored and is doing amazing!”

Simpson, 38, added that she is healing and anticipating the birth of her daughter.

“I am on my way to healthy and counting down the days to see her sweet smile,” Simpson wrote. “Sending love and prayers to all the mothers who are going or have gone through this. OUCH.”

The star accompanied her message with a photo showing her in a leopard-print hoodie with a surgical mask covering her mouth.

The “With You” singer later said she managed to control the swelling by experimenting with cupping therapy, an ancient Chinese massage therapy technique thought to increase blood circulation.

Simpson has also revealed that her “severe pregnancy acid reflux” led her to buy herself a special sleep recliner, and said that she suffered a month of sciatica pain, which radiates from one’s lower back down each leg, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Pete Davidson and rumored flame Kate Beckinsale were seen holding hands early Sunday morning, just days after the actress admitted she likes “funny” guys.

The Saturday Night Live star, 25, was joined by the British actress, 45, following this week’s episode of the comedy program, as the pair were photographed together outside of an SNL afterparty.

Making a colorful fashion statement, Davidson wore a bright multi-colored jacket with a pair of jeans, while Beckinsale opted for a chic all-black outfit with stylish matching heels.

Reps for Davidson and Beckinsale did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.

The duo’s latest outing came after Beckinsale opened up about how she’d describe her ideal man while attending an N.Y.C. event to celebrate her new DuJour magazine cover on Thursday.

“Funny, I like funny,” she told Extra.

Beckinsale and Davidson first sparked romance rumors when they were seen together at a Golden Globes afterparty in January, where one onlooker told PEOPLE the pair were seen cuddling.

Then, the pair was spotted holding hands on Feb. 1 as they left famed music and comedy venue Largo at the Coronet in West Hollywood, California, following Davidson’s stand-up show.

Though they left the venue hand-in-hand and headed back to Davidson’s Santa Monica hotel together, a source close to Beckinsale previously told PEOPLE that her relationship with Davidson is not likely to go any further.

“Kate’s not looking to get serious with someone,” the source said.

Although the pair have yet to confirm their relationship status, Beckinsale has shut down internet trolls who have criticized their rumored romance.

After Beckinsale was first spotted hitting it off with the comedian in January, one commenter wrote on a throwback photo of Beckinsale’s mother, actress Judy Loe, “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson.”

In an exchange captured by Comments by Celebs, Beckinsale responded, “No that’s my mother. Easy mistake.”

In February, the actress made a joke about Davidson when a fan mistook the SNL star for the late Freddie Mercury.

“Trying to look like someone who was not wildly over excited about this picture or startled while planning a sneaky lick of Freddie’s eyeball,” Beckinsale captioned a shot of herself posing next to a photo of the singer.

“Is that a painting of Pete Davidson?” one commenter asked, to which Beckinsale jokingly responded, “GREAT EYE.”

Beckinsale was previously married to director/producer Len Wiseman, 45. Following their 2016 divorce, she’s been linked to comedian and actor Matt Rife, 23, as well as British actor and comedian Jack Whitehall, 30.

The actress shares 20-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen with actor Michael Sheen, whom she dated for eight years.

Davidson split from singer Ariana Grande, 25, last October, and though the comedian had admitted to having a hard time in the months since, a source told PEOPLE late last year that he was embracing his bachelorhood.

“He is very much enjoying being single as he is focusing on himself,” the source said in December.

The Voice contestant Janice Freeman, who competed for Team Miley on the NBC series in 2017, died Saturday of complications from pneumonia and a blood clot, according to her management team. She was 33.

The singer rose to fame on season 13 of the popular competition series, where she was recruited for coach Cyrus’ team and made it to the Top 11.

Her biography from her time on the show said Freeman’s goal in achieving a successful music career was to “provide stability” for her daughter Hannah. It also focused on her recovery from a cervical cancer diagnosis in 2012.

She and Cyrus shared a close bond that lasted after Freeman left the show, as she revealed on Twitter in January 2018 that the “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” singer even helped cover her housing bills for six months.

“Thank you ALL but she found us placement until we found permanent housing, gave me the deposit, covered me for 6 months so I can get on my feet!” Freeman wrote at the time. “@MileyCyrus you are one of my closest friends and what you did for me and my family Im praying GOD gives you the desire of your heart!”
Cyrus, 26, shared a sweet tribute to Freeman on her Instagram Sunday with a picture of a rainbow poking out above the trees.

“Thank you @janicefreeman … for everything. This represents you perfectly,” Cyrus, 26, wrote.
