Jessica Simpson Shares Photo Of Flying Baby Ace


It's Jessica Simpson's babe – but without a trapeze! He flies through the air with the greatest of ease.

Yes, you're eyes aren't deceiving you: that really is a flying baby, chucked into the air by his doting dad who – thank heavens – has very strong arms.

The little one with his arms outstretched and his face a picture of delight, is Jessica Simpson's baby boy, Ace – her second with husband Eric Johnson.

But rather than being freaked out by her husband's baby-hurling antics, Jessica was thrilled and shared the snap with her online army of followers.

She wrote on Instagram: "I was on a plane to NYC today and I missed out on this!!!' I'm in LOVE with the 2 of them. #boyswillbeboys."

In the photo, Eric is seen standing inside a pool with his son several heads above in the air. But Ace was in good hands – because Eric is a former American football players, whose main job involved catching Ace-sized balls!

Jessica, 34, talked to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush about how much of a great father her husband is to their two kids Ace and daughter Max, aged two. She said: "Ace is obsessed with his dad, Maxwell is obsessed with her dad,' she gushed. "I think it's because he can lift both of them [at the same time]. Eric is the best."
