We here at JessicaFan.us would like to wish Jessica an amazing 33rd Birthday.
In the looks department, Jessica Simpson’s brand-new little boy, well, aced it! “The baby is beautiful,” a pal tells Us Weekly of Ace Knute Johnson, whom Simpson delivered via C-section in L.A. Sunday June 30. And he takes after his handsome father, Simpson’s fiance Eric Johnson, the insider adds: “He has Eric’s little chin dimple!”
Engaged since fall 2010, the Fashion Star mentor, 32, and the former NFL pro, 33, “are so happy to have a boy,” notes the source. “One of each, everybody wants that!” With a middle name that honors his Swedish grandfather, Ace Knute (pronounced Ka-nute) joins big sister Maxwell Drew, 14 months.
“Maxwell is excited,” the source tells Us of the blonde, blue-eyed toddler. “She doesn’t totally get it and understand, but she is very excited to have a brother.
Since Ace’s Sunday arrival, the second-time parents have received visits at the hospital from Simpson’s parents Joe and Tina, sister Ashlee — and Simpson’s still-pregnant BFF Cacee Cobb.
Expecting her first child with husband Donald Faison, Cobb, 35, sounds like she’s smitten with her honorary new nephew. “IN LOVE,” she tweeted Sunday in a message surrounded by hearts. Added proud grandfather Joe Simpson:”Very blessed to celebrate the birth of my new grandson.”
Jessica, meanwhile, “is ecstatic,” the source notes.
Jessica Simpson‘s tiniest fashion star has arrived!
The Fashion Star mentor, 32, and her fiancé, Eric Johnson, welcomed son Ace Knute Johnson on Sunday, June 30, her rep confirms to PEOPLE. The middle name honors Johnson’s Swedish grandfather, the rep explains.
The new addition joins big sister Maxwell Drew, who celebrated her first birthday May 1.
Although Simpson had initially planned to keep the sex of her second baby a secret, she memorably let it slip that she was having a son on Jimmy Kimmel Live in March, and later told PEOPLE she was looking forward to adding a boy to the family.
“I’m so excited to have a son,” she said at the time of her Tom Sawyer-themed shower in April. “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.”
During a Christmas vacation, Jessica confirmed her rumored pregnancy news on Twitter when she posted a sweet picture of baby Maxwell sitting in the sand above letters that read “BIG SIS”.
Jessica Simpson’s famous friends and family members feted the second-time mom-to-be at L.A.’s Hotel Bel Air on April 14, Us Weekly has learned. The Tom Sawyer-themed shower was attended by actress Jessica Alba, hairstylist Ken Paves and former personal assistant CaCee Cobb, who happens to be expecting her first child with husband Donald Faison.
The guest of honor’s mother, Tina Simpson, was one of the first people to arrive, a source tells Us. “Tina was so thrilled to be at the shower and seemed over the moon for Jessica,” the source says. ” She was so bubbly and happy.” Jessica’s younger sister, Ashlee Simpson, showed up just before 2:30 p.m.
Yellow and blue gift bags were placed on a table near the entrance, and according to the source, “there was also a child-sized, royal blue antique-style car” on display. (Jessica revealed in March that her second baby — joining big sister Maxwell, 11 months — is a boy.)
Wearing a blue Diane von Furstenberg mini-dress and nude Brian Atwood heels, Jessica arrived moments later with her adorable little girl. “She woke up super tired,” the 32-year-old Fashion Star mentor was overheard telling pals.
Attendees gathered around antique wooden tables and distressed wooden benches and dined on comfort foods including pigs in a blanket, mini sliders and salad. There was also a three-tiered baby blue cake featuring a Tom Sawyer topper. “Jessica looked so happy and content with her family and friends around her,” the source tells Us of Eric Johnson’s fiancee of 29 months. “She had the biggest grin on her face.”
At Jessica’s rustic baby shower for Maxwell in March 2012, the “I Wanna Love You Forever” singer was surrounded by her mom and sister, in addition to actresses Alba, Ellen Pompeo and Odette Annable.
