Jessica Simpson gives birth to second son Ace Knute


"Fashion Star" judge and hit pop singer Jessica Simpson has finally bid adieu to her baby bump and hello to another stack of diapers, because her newest addition has arrived at last!

Simpson and her fiance Eric Johnson – former Yale grad student and NFL player – welcomed their second child, baby boy Ace Knute Johnson, on June 30.

For Simpson, who rose to fame as the star of the hit reality show "Newlyweds" with ex-hubby Nick Lachey, the birth of little Ace Knute comes just a year after the arrival of her first child, a girl whom they named Maxwell Drew.

While little Maxwell celebrated her first birthday on May 1, Simpson was waiting for the entrance of Ace Knute, whose distinctive moniker is an homage to Johnson's grandfather, who is Swedish.

"I'm so excited to have a son," Simpson told People magazine during her Tom Sawyer-themed baby 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."

After six months of dating, Simpson and Johnson got engaged in the fall of 2010 but postponed their ceremony because of Simpson's pregnancies. But now with the birth of Ace, Simpson and Johnson are sure to tie the knot soon!
