Those of us who have been waiting with bated breath for Jessica Simpson to drop baby #2 can finally exhale—the singer gave birth to a boy, Ace Knute Johnson, via C-section yesterday.

He's the second child for Simpson and her longtime fiance, former pro football player Eric Johnson.

According to US Weekly, the little guy's middle name is in honor of Johnson's paternal grandfather, Knute Johnson.

Ace—whose middle name is pronounced Ka-nute, according to the LA Times—joins his sister, Maxwell Drew, as the latest addition to the Johnson-Simpson tribe. Maxwell turned one this past May.
