Jessica Simpson has welcomed her second child with fiance Eric Johnson, with Ace Knute Johnson born in Los Angeles on Sunday, it has been confirmed. The singer turned TV star is said to be "thrilled," with the new arrival.
It was confirmed in November that the Fashion Star presenter was expecting her second child just seven months after the birth of daughter Maxwell.
"Ace Knute (pronounced Ka-nute) Johnson has arrived! Mom and baby are doing great," her rep told Us Weekly, "Jessica, Eric and Maxwell are thrilled to welcome the new addition to their family."
Speaking about the back to back pregnancies, Jessica admitted earlier this year her second hadn't been so easy.
"this pregnancy is the complete opposite. Like with Maxwell, I felt amazing. Like I could do everything, eat everything," she said during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in March, "Do whatever I wanted. I had a lot of energy,"
"This time around . . . I'm like exhausted. Eating Tums. That's my snack of choice."
While Jess might have had two babies in just two years, don't expect any more additions to the Johnson/Simpson clan next year as the star has made it clear two is enough for now.

"I really hope that it stops (at two kids)," she told Ryan Seacrest during an appearance on his KIIS radio show, "Originally, I had wanted three. But now that I have one and another one on the way, I feel like I could stop here. (But) accidents do happen!"
It's expected to be wedding bells now for Jess and Eric, who got together in 2010. The couple have been delaying their nuptials on account of their double arrival, with insiders claiming they're now keen to get hitched.
"[Jess] Was telling friends she wanted to get married a few months after the baby is born," the source told the US magazine, "Jessica said, 'Let's have this wedding already before I get pregnant with another one!'"
Joking about getting married, Jess told Seacrest in the same interview: "We've had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up."
