It appears that Jessica Simpson has already picked out a name for her forthcoming baby boy.
Simpson, who is pregnant with her second child with fiancé Eric Johnson, will reportedly name the new tyke Ace.
“[She's] told people she’s going to name the baby Ace!” a source was quoted telling US Weekly magazine.
The singer has yet to reveal how she and Johnson, 33, decided upon the name.
Simpson and Johnson had their first child, Maxwell Drew, in May 2012. Maxwell, now 10 months old, was named after Simpson’s mother’s maiden name (Drew) and Johnson’s middle name.
“It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it they’ll know …why,” she told Elle magazine last year, when asked about her name choice.
Simpson revealed her second pregnancy via Twitter on Christmas Day, only seven months after the birth of her daughter Maxwell. Though she is ecstatic about about baby Ace’s arrival, she admits getting pregnant a second time wasn’t planned.
“Apparently [my second pregnancy] was a part of God’s plan for my life. I was extremely shocked… because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes, trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica. You know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened, all over again!”
Despite being surprised by her pregnancy, Simpson said she was overjoyed on the reality of expanding her family.
“Motherhood is a dream,” Simpson told Katie Couric back in September. “It really is absolutely amazing.”
