Jessica Simpson, former pop-singer turned reality superstar and fashion maven, gave birth to her second child over the weekend. Jessica Simpson and her fiancé, Eric Johnson, welcomed a little boy, Ace Knute (pronounced Ka-nute) Johnson, who was delivered via a scheduled c-section.
Jessica Simpson’s rep confirmed the happy occasion, saying, “Ace Johnson has arrived! Mom and baby are doing great. Jessica, Eric and Maxwell are thrilled to welcome the new addition to their family."
Jessica Simpson, long known for being unlucky in love after her divorce from 98 Degrees member Nick Lachey, dated John Mayer and Tony Romo before meeting Eric Johnson, a former NFL player. Jessica Simpson and Johnson got engaged in 2010, but in the midst of wedding planning, the couple found out they were expecting their first child. The little girl, Maxwell Drew, was born in early 2012. Mere months later Jessica Simpson announced she was pregnant with her second child.
Jessica Simpson, who won the hearts of millions with her ditzy, but lovable behavior, accidentally announced the sex of her second child during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel earlier in the year. The birth of Ace Johnson must be a high-point in the year for Simpson, as her parents are in the midst of a nasty divorce battle (which includes bombshell rumors that her father, a former Baptist minister, is really gay, that her mother planned a possible murder-suicide after finding out, and that Joe Simpson had taken out a very, very large life insurance on Jessica Simpson). Simpson has long been the breadwinner for her family, raking in hundreds of millions of dollars from her fashion line as well as an endorsement from Weight Watchers.
Regardless of the drama, Jessica Simpson fans are waiting for their first glimpse of baby Ace. There’s been no word on whether he will debut in a magazine spread or on Jessica Simpson’s Instagram account.
