Ashlee Simpson is smitten with her new niece.
“Bronx and I are in love with Maxwell already!” Ashlee gushes to PEOPLE about the newest member to join the family. “Jessica has wanted to be a mom since we were little girls and I couldn’t be more excited for her and Eric!”
And Ashlee has already begun spoiling her first niece with luxury clothing. In March, she gifted baby Maxwell with a tiny Fendi dress and matching garment bag while celebrating her impending birth at mama Jess’s Charlotte’s Web-themed baby shower.
“Ever since Ashlee had Bronx, we’ve become closer and closer,” Jessica tells PEOPLE. “I’m glad that our babies are just going to be three years apart.”
“[Bronx] records songs on my sister’s iPhone about the things he wants to do with the baby, like swim in the ocean and go to the playground,” she adds. “The first one just made me cry. We’re making a CD of them – it was the best gift of all.”
