Look at this happy little family!
Actually, Jessica Simpson's son Ace looks more resigned than happy, but he'll get used to all the cameras soon (for better or worse).
While People magazine put Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas on the cover for their rumored marriage issues, Us Weekly is showing off Jessica and her two kids — Maxwell, age 1 year, 3 months; and Ace, who was born just two months ago.
Update: The New York Post reports that Jessica earned a cool $100K for the cute photos of Ace and his big sis. While it's a far cry from the reported $800,000 she raked in for daughter 2012 Maxwell's People cover, it's certainly enough to keep the kids clothed and fed for the rest of their lives, so that's something — and with the estimated $100 million Jess has in the bank, we doubt she's sweating the price drop much, either.
Jessica's fiance and baby daddy, Eric Johnson, is not on the cover at all, which he probably doesn't mind. Let his beauties shine! Max has just about the cutest smile ever, and Ace is a handsome little lad, even if the photo shows him in a more serious moment.
For now, Jessica says Max and Ace are enough to handle.
"With two kids, we have our hands full, but every day is a new adventure," Jessica told Us Weekly. "It's fun! I feel very at peace with being a mom."
Earlier, a source said Jessica and Eric planned to wait two or three years before having another child. It sounds like Jessica plans on avoiding being the next Tori Spelling, who didn’t even wait half a year before becoming pregnant again after the birth of her third child. (Considering Jess was exhausted and practically living off Tums while pregnant with Ace, we don’t blame her for wanting to take a breather and enjoy life with the little ones for a bit.)
Apparently if you pick up this week's issue, you'll read about her feelings on the "hurtful" weight bullies (such as the Twitter user who accused her of gaining 598 pounds during her pregnancy), her post-baby diet and exercise plan, Max's reaction to her little brother, and an update on Mom and Dad's wedding plans. While Jennifer Love Hewitt wants to postpone her nuptials until she loses her baby weight, Jessica and Eric have been saying they want to get hitched right away.
Congrats to the growing (and glowing!) family.
