Jessica Simpson

Happy birthday, Jessica Simpson!

A source tells E! News that the mother of two has been released from the hospital following the birth of her second child, son Ace Knute, on June 30.

It appears that she got to ring in her 33rd birthday at home with close friends and family.

Simpson had been resting since undergoing a scheduled C-section at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital.

And according to Simpson's rep, she and her retired footballer fiancé Eric Johnson are over the moon about the latest addition to their family.

The newborn joins 1-year-old big sister Maxwell in the duo's quickly expanding brood.

The baby boy's middle name reportedly honors dad Eric's Swedish paternal grandfather, Knute Johnson.

Jessica's dad, Joe Simpson, took to Twitter to reveal his excitement as well, sharing: "Very blessed to celebrate the birth of my new grandson."

Nick Lachey was apparently not on Jessica Simpson's "It's a Boy!" announcement mailing list.

When asked if he had spoken to his ex-wife since the birth of her second child, Lachey admitted that he had not—but he hopes all is well!

"Nope, no. We're not in touch," the host of The Winner Is told E! News at the NYC launch of Wendy's #PretzelLoveSongs campaign in honor of the chain's new Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger.

"I certainly wish her the best and I would like to think the same on her end, but we don't speak," Lachey said. "We haven't spoken in years."

The remarried dad, who welcomed son Camden with wife Vanessa Lachey last September, previously said on Watch What Happens: Live that it had been "probably six years" since he and Simpson had seen each other. The former Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica costars divorced in 2006.

"It's like another lifetime ago," Lachey said on the Bravo show, referring to his first marriage. "We don't sit around as a family and watch the old DVDs!"

Another lifetime indeed…

Meanwhile, Simpson and Johnson have been engaged since in November 2010 but have yet to pin down a wedding date.
