Jessica Simpson Gives Birth To Baby Boy
Another day, another celebrity seed born….
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.”
Awww congrats to Jessica and Eric – we must admit we had to read little Ace’s middle name twice, it was looking like “Kunta” at first :-)
