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”.
