Jessica Simpson Gives Birth to Baby Boy
Jessica Simpson is a mom again! A little over a year after giving birth to her firstborn, daughter Maxwell Drew, the singer, actress and fashionista has welcomed her second child, son Ace Knute Johnson. The little tyke was born today, Sunday, June 30.
Simpson, 32, and her fiancé Eric Johnson, a former NFL’er, wasted no time surprising the world with a very quick second pregnancy. Maxwell was born on May 1, 2012 and by Christmas, Simpson revealed that she was expecting again.
Simpson’s rep confirmed the news of Ace’s grand arrival and explained that his middle name is an homage to his Swedish grandfather. His first name makes us think he has a future as a race car driver or that his parents like playing cards.
Simpson recently said that she was stoked to be welcoming a blue bundle of joy since it would be something new and foreign territory to explore. “I’m so excited to have a son,” she admitted at her April baby shower. “I didn’t grow up with a brother and I think the unknown is really exciting. I can’t wait to have that connection with our little man.”
Congrats to Simpson, Johnson and Maxwell on the latest addition to their family. Here’s hoping Simpson can finally enjoy some time without a bun in the oven, since she was pregnant for chunks of time in of 2011, 2012 and 2013. Mama and her uterus need a break.
