Los Angeles - Jessica Simpson is “ecstatic” following the birth of her son on Sunday.

The Fashion Star mentor, who also has a daughter Maxwell, 14 months, with her fiancé Eric Johnson, is “so happy” to have finally welcomed her son, Ace Knute, into the world.

A source close to the singer turned fashion designer, 32, told UsMagazine.com that the couple “are so happy to have a boy. One of each, everybody wants that.

“The baby is beautiful. He has Eric's little chin dimple!”

Jessica's daughter Maxwell is also very excited to be a big sister. The friend explained: “Maxwell is excited. She doesn't totally get it and understand, but she is very excited to have a brother.”

Support from the family

Jessica has had plenty of visitors in hospital since the birth, including her parents Tina and Joe, sister Ashlee, 28, and pregnant best friend Cacee Cobb.

Joe also tweeted: “Very blessed to celebrate the birth of my new grandson.” Jessica, who was previously married to Nick Lachey, gave birth via a scheduled C-section in Los Angeles.

The blonde beauty is expected to resume her position as a Weight Watchers spokesperson later this summer.
