Rave review: Jessica Simpson, the ‘proud’ mom, raves about son Ace’s ‘athlete mentality’ and excellence under pressure after revealing he won his team’s baseball game
“My baseball stud won the championships with a home run against an undefeated team at the end of the game.”
Add: “He told me he saved that hit for that moment, so the team was caught off guard. That’s athlete mentality if I do say so myself… and he’s only 7.
“This kid is EVERYTHING good and excels under pressure. However, he says he doesn’t feel any pressure because he knows what he can and will do on the field.’
“He’s so happy they won the championships, but he’s on the all star team now and will only get better. This house and his family are SO proud of him!!!’
She kept adding that her mom Tina Simpson was also in attendance and that she ‘might have been caught’ [her] eardrum’ from screaming so loud.
In early May, she revealed she had an intuition when pregnant with Ace that he would “dominate a baseball field.”

The With You singer shares Ace, and daughters Maxwell, nine, and Birdie Mae, two, with husband Eric Johnson, who was a former NFL player.
The couple celebrated 11 years together on May 21 after meeting him in Italy around her 30th birthday and less than a year later, they quickly became engaged.
Simpson released an all-encompassing memoir called Open Book, in which she talked about her struggles with weight after becoming famous as a teenager, which included years of diet pills.

Her weight yo-yoed through her several pregnancies, but recently she lost 100 pounds after giving birth to Birdie.
Healthy diet and exercise allowed her to lose the weight, but she doesn’t focus on a number on the scale or her size. “I just want to feel good and be able to zip up my pants,” she said in an April TODAY appearance.
And given what she’s been through, a source said she wants to be a good “role model” for her children and doesn’t want her daughters to “experience what she suffered mentally.”
“She wants to be a great role model for her children and a role model for them,” an insider said Us Weekly. “Now that they’re getting older, they’ll soon be undergoing body changes, so she just wants to make sure she can educate them properly about what being healthy really means.”
