Jessica Simpson Steps Out for First Time Since Giving Birth to Son Ace

Well, hello, there, Ace's mom!

Jessica Simpson was spotted out for the first time since she gave birth to son Ace Knute Johnson late last month — and she looked fantabulous.

The "Fashion Star" mentor was headed to a doctor's appointment with an assistant in tow in Beverly Hills when she was photographed. Ever the fashionista, Simpson was wearing a colorful caftan and a pair of her signature high-heels, and she was toting an oversized red purse.

Despite the big shades she was wearing, we could tell she was emitting that special new-mom radiance.

Unlike Kate Middleton, who greeted the world just a day after delivering the royal baby, Simpson's road to recovery has been a little slower. She gave birth at Los Angeles's Cedars-Sinai on June 30, but didn't leave the hospital until July 10 — just in time for her 33rd birthday — so she could recover from the scheduled C-section.

Simpson — who also has a 1-year-old daughter, Maxwell, with her fiancé Eric Johnson — hasn't stayed completely out of the loop with her fans though. On July 12, the funny gal returned to Twitter to share an amusing photo of her mother, Tina Simpson, wrapped up like a baby.

"Eric got carried away with his swaddling skills!" she wrote.

While Johnson might be a little overzealous, whatever TLC he's giving at home seems to be working. His bride-to-be looks great!

Now, check out other star moms (and dads!) who have been spotted out with their little ones this week.
