JESSICA Simpson has given birth to a baby boy.

The 'Fashion Star' mentor and her fiance Eric Johnson welcomed their second child into the world on Sunday (30.06.13) in Los Angeles and have named the little boy Ace Knute Johnson.

A spokesperson for the 32-year-old star confirmed that the baby was born via a scheduled C-section and told UsMagazine.com: "Ace Knute (pronounced Ka-nute) Johnson has arrived! Mom and baby are doing great. Jessica, Eric and Maxwell are thrilled to welcome the new addition to their family."

Jessica, who also has a 13-month-old daughter, Maxwell, with Eric accidentally revealed she was having a son during a TV interview in March.

A source close to the couple, who got engaged in 2010, previously revealed that they were keen to tie the knot shortly after the birth of their son as the blonde beauty fears she may fall pregnant again and be forced to cancel her wedding plans a third time, having previously nixed their nuptials because of the unexpected baby news.

A source said: [Jessica] was telling friends she wanted to get married a few months after the baby is born."
