Jessica Simpson Welcomes Baby Boy Ace Knute

Jessica Simpson gave birth to a baby boy on June 30 in Los Angeles. “Ace Knute (pronounced Ka-nute) Johnson has arrived! Mom and baby are doing great,” a representative told Us Weekly.

Ace Knute is Simpson’s second child with fiance (and former football player) Eric Johnson and joins daughter Maxwell Drew, born May 2012. Simpson had announced her second pregnancy last December — someone asked, “How’s the baby?” and she said, “Which one?! I’m pregnant again!” She revealed the baby boy’s name two months later.

“Motherhood is a dream. It really is absolutely amazing,” Simpson told Katie Couric in September 2012, as the first-ever guest on Couric’s daytime talk show Katie. Revisit the interview after the jump.
