Jessica Simpson is definitely expecting a boy & she’ll definitely name him ‘Ace’

Last week, we heard about Jessica Simpson’s second foray into baby-naming. Us Weekly claimed that Jessica was dead-set on naming her second baby, gender unknown, “Ace Johnson”. Some may roll their eyes at this reporting, but remember this – everyone knew Jessica’s first baby name (Maxwell Drew) months before she gave birth too. She doesn’t keep her baby names a secret, and the tabloids find out and I have every confidence that this news is completely legit. Well, this week’s Life & Style confirms that Jessica is totally going to name her baby “Ace” after her maternal grandfather, and that she’s definitely having a boy this time:

As recent reports swirl about the sex of Jessica Simpson’s second baby, multiple sources have confirmed to Life & Style that the pregnant singer turned fashion designer is having a boy!

“Jessica is having a boy and they are going to call him Ace or Acy,” a source close to the couple tells Life & Style, revealing that the name will pay tribute to her maternal grandfather, Acy Edward Drew, with whom she was always close. “Her grandfather is honored.”

“She and Eric are still deciding on a middle name, but they want it to be biblical,” the source continues. “Jess is religious and loves that idea.”

Though an insider confirms that Jess, 32, has decided to put her wedding to Eric Johnson, 33, on hold for now, one project the Fashion Star mentor is moving forward with is her baby-clothing line.

The insider explains, “Now she can’t wait to start working on the boys’ line, as well!”

Even if her designs aren’t ready in time for her son’s arrival, he’ll still be the best dressed newborn because Jessica’s little sister, Ashlee, tells Life & Style she plans to give her nephew all of her son Bronx’s hand–me-downs. “I have a bunch of vintage shirts that I can give!”

Was I the only one kind of hoping that Jessica would just have daughters? And that she would name her second daughter “Ace”? Because that might have been pretty cool. But calling a baby boy “Ace Johnson” just seems… I don’t know. Like, does she want her son to grow up to be a character in a Jim Carrey comedy? Or is this more of Eric’s doing? “Ace Johnson” sounds like an athlete, only Ace would be the kid’s nickname, and his real name would be Francis or something.

As for the Biblical middle name… Kenaniah? Shammuah? Mahershalalhashbaz?

    Yay, I guess? I don’t know, is Ace that bad of an English name? I ask because I’m not used to English names that aren’t the very basic David, Michael and Paul.

    Gosh, her skin is soooo pretty.

    Hahahaha! Can’t breath @ “Kenaniah? Shammuah? Mahershalalhashbaz”.

    Mahershalalhashbaz is definitely one for the records lmao.

    Do people not understand nicknames anymore? You can call your kid Ace, but give him a “normal” name so that when he’s an adult and trying to do adult things like get a job and buy a house, he doesn’t have to write “Ace” on the forms.

    Ace Johnson sounds like a comedy pornstar.

  5. anneesezz says:

    And that is definitely a stupid name.

  6. Tapioca says:

    What lucy2 said. Although a quick look at the UK top ten baby names shows that nicknames (for boys especially) are getting scarily popular now.

    However, they could call him literally ANYTHING and he’d still be able to point and laugh at cousin Bronx Mowgli.

    The bar has been set already!

    It just reminds me of will ferrells movie taladega nights(sp?) Where the kids are named Walker and Texas Ranger.

  8. Lilo says:

    Don’t care for the name too much, but I have to say: she looks wonderful this time around.

  9. lem says:

    I’m not going to bash the name if it’s a family name. I think it’s sweet to honor grandparents like that.

  10. Sam says:

    My son’s name is Asa, and we occassionally call him Ace as a nickname – but that’s not his actual name, for God’s sake.

    But then again, is this shocking? This is a woman who intentionally refers to her firstborn as Maxi.

    Whatever she names him, it is her call. Ace as a nickname is okay, although everyone I have ever known that goes by the nickname of Ace is a total tool.

  13. the original bellaluna says:

    “Ace” or “Skippy” is what I use as kind of a loving rebuke when one of my kids does something…not so brilliant. But then, it’s not a family name, so I’m not going to bash on it as her choice of name. (And it’s sweet that she’s choosing to use a family name.)

  14. KellyinSeattle says:

    I’m happy for her having a little boy, but his middle name will be Ventura.

  15. anon says:

    I love she is sticking with family names & heritage. There different names won’t be duplicated a lot but not out of disneyland either. They wil grow into these names as adults & its all good. I too would love a girl called ACE actually. lol Ace for a boy sounds masculine also & sporty just like ERIC.

  16. shewolf says:

    Any baby boy born in the past 10 years is either a Jayden, a Brayden, an Aiden, or a Cayden… so yeah, if anyone picks on him for being called Ace then they probably just have insecurities over their own girly little names.

  17. Ruyana says:

    I am so, so sick of people naming their children as if they were naming a puppy. The poor kid will be stuck with the name for life, or at least until he legally changes it. My mom had a neighbor who had a late-life menopause baby. She allowed her three teenage daughters to name their new brother. His Name? Dude. For real.
