Hey there, Jessica Simpson!

After lying low for nearly a month, the singer resurfaced for the first time since giving birth to her baby boy, Ace Knute Johnson, when she was spotted attending a morning doctor's appointment in Beverly Hills with her female assistant.

Continuing to show off a mommy glow, a happy Simpson wore a tie-dyed muu-muu dress while carrying her staple item—an over-sized designer bag.


This may be the first time the world has actually seen Jess since her son's birth, but the star made her social media return a few weeks ago. And understandably so, her first post was baby-related.

The fashion designer posted an adorable pic of her mother Tina Simpson wrapped up in a blanket like a baby and captioned the pic, "Eric [Johnson] got carried away with his swaddling skills!" (Hey, he's not bad at it.)

E! News exclusively confirmed that the blond beauty was released from the hospital in early July. Simpson, who celebrated her 33rd birthday shortly afterward, had been resting since undergoing a scheduled C-section at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital.

Baby Ace was welcomed into the world on June 30, making the Simpson-Johnson brood a family of four. The newborn is now a younger sibling to the couple's 1-year-old daughter, Maxwell Drew.

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

The baby boy's middle name reportedly honors dad Eric's Swedish paternal grandfather, Knute Johnson, which continues the parents' trend of including their family history into their children's names. Maxwell Drew, 1, was named after Eric's middle name (Maxwell) as well as his grandmother's surname, and Drew is the maiden name of Jessica's mom.

Now the question that remains is when we get to see little Ace?!
