Billionaire Fashion Star Jessica Simpson Gives Birth To Baby Boy, Ace Knute Johnson, Highlight Hollywood News
Maxwell’s baby brother has arrived! Jessica Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson have welcomed their second child, a baby boy named Ace Knute Johnson, her rep confirmed on Sunday. Us Weekly was first to report it. Little Ace was born in Los Angeles via scheduled C-section on Sunday, June 30, the rep adds.
“Ace Knute (pronounced Ka-nute) Johnson has arrived! Mom and baby are doing great,” her rep said on Sunday. “Jessica, Eric and Maxwell are thrilled to welcome the new addition to their family.”
The singer, 32, and Johnson, 33, are already parents to daughter Maxwell, nearly 14 months. In true Jessca fashion, the Fashion Star mentor accidentally confirmed the sex of her second baby-to-be to back in March. “The crazy thing is I never knew a wiener could make me nauseous,” she joked of her morning sickness. After realizing her mistake, Simpson added, “Well, I guess I just told the world that I’m having a boy!”
After about six months of dating, Simpson and Johnson, a Yale grad and former NFL player, got engaged in fall 2010, but were forced to postpone their nuptials twice due to her unexpected, back-to-back pregnancies. But a source recently said they’re hoping to (finally!) tie the knot soon.
At the Weight Watchers spokeswoman’s April 14 baby shower, she “was telling friends she wanted to get married a few months after the baby is born,” the source told Us. “Jessica said, ‘Let’s have this wedding already before I get pregnant with another one!'”
