Jessica Simpson proudly welcomed the return of her ankles in a post-pregnancy shot she shared on Instagram and Twitter on Tuesday.

Simpson was overjoyed to show off her ankles following months of swelling, sleepless nights, and every other lovely side-effect of stepping into motherhood.

“I spy…. my ankles,” Simpson wrote.

The singer posted updates of her alarmingly swollen ankles during pregnancy, begging for potential remedies to every pregnant woman’s nightmare.

“Any remedies,” Simpson pleaded. “Help!!!!”

Twitter moms came to Simpson’s rescue with hundreds of replies offering advice. Simpson deciding on cupping, a Chinese remedy using hot glass suction cups to stimulate blood flow.

Simpson announced the birth of her third child, Birdie May, with husband Eric Johnson in March. Months later, Simpson’s followers remembered her ankle grievances and joined in celebrating the long-awaited return of her ankles.

“Girl,” one Twitter user wrote. “You’ve been workin!!!! I wanna be like you after this pregnancy!!!”

“Yasssss best feeling after a pregnancy,” one Twitter user wrote.

We’re all happy they’re back.
