The US singer and actress and her fiance Eric Johnson welcomed son Ace Knute Johnson on Sunday, Us Weekly reports.

Ace, who was born in Los Angeles via scheduled C-section, is a little brother for the couple's one-year-old daughter Maxwell Drew.

Jessica's spokesperson said: "Ace Knute (pronounced Ka-nute) Johnson has arrived! Mom and baby are doing great. Jessica, Eric and Maxwell are thrilled to welcome the new addition to their family."

Ace's middle name honours 33-year-old dad Eric's Swedish paternal grandfather, Knute Johnson.

Jessica, 32, announced her pregnancy in December and in March she let slip that she was expecting a boy.

The star revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that she hadn't been feeling well during her second pregnancy, adding: "I never knew a wiener could actually make me nauseous".

She followed up by saying she "couldn't believe" she "just told the world" she was having a boy.
