Jessica Simpson Throws Her Son Ace Knute a Dinosaur-Themed 3rd Birthday Party

06/30/2016 at 09:45 PM ET

Jessica Simpson knows how to host a roaring good party.

The proud mom celebrated her son Ace Knute turning 3 Thursday with a dinosaur-themed birthday party. Simpson, 35, and husband Eric Johnson organized a fun kids bash complete with tons of balloons, jungle foliage and a volcano-shaped cake to go with the Jurassic-esque motif.

Also at the party was the couple’s elder child, 4-year-old daughter Maxwell Drew. The family of four took an adorable photo together which Simpson captioned, “Happy Birthday dinosaur! You complete me #3 #aceknute.” As seen in the photo, the fashion mogul opted for a chic costume outfit sporting a midriff-baring banana leaf print crop top and matching bottoms.

“Ace turns 3 and I feel prehistoric! #dinoparty #aceknute,” Simpson jokingly captioned another snapshot from the party.

Though it was her little brother’s big day recently, Maxwell usually makes sure everyone knows who the oldest sibling in the house is. “She definitely lets her brother know that she’s the oldest and that she is in charge,” Simpson previously told PEOPLE. “Ace is finally starting to stand up for himself.”

While Simpson wears many hats as a businesswoman and mother, she’s also getting back to her music. The star has been recording new music with Linda Perry in the studio as documented on Instagram. Simpson last released Happy Christmas, her seventh studio album and second Christmas album, back in 2010.

That’s what she wore to her kids 3rd birthday party?! Smh 😳

Lisa on

The article wouldn’t be complete without a picture of her in some ridiculous outfit and clunky platform shoes.

I’ll never understand all the fuss over how “cute” these kids are. Half of the kids my kids go to school with in boring Oklahoma are cuter than them.

megan on

So Jessica cut out Blanche’s wallpaper from the Golden Girls & made an outfit. How very Maria Von Trapp of her

Volly on

Jessica is a designer, she could have made more appropriate clothes for her kids.

Kelso on

Wow the comments…. Not gonna lie that was my first impression also but after reading and actually looking at the pictures everyone there at the party (a pool party) was in bathing suits so I thought her suit was pretty conservative

sam on

Aww her kids are adorable

Me on

Lol bet all the rude comments about her attire are stemming from bad self esteem ….stop hating because you wouldn’t look half as good in that swim suit stop complaining and taking out your personal image issues and do something about it

Maya on

The kid needs a haircut, he looks unkept.

Vanna on

Her younger son is 3 years old already? That’s fast.

The top photo is obviously taken during the actual party, not the pool event. The husband and the children are wearing regular clothes. Not to mention, Jessica is wearing huge heels with her ummm….. outfit. I have never seen a mother dress like that for a kid’s birthday party. Her appearance screams ‘look at me’ – whether it’s appropriate or not, is not for us to decide, but it’s definitely aimed to focus attention on HER not on her child. I like Jessica, but I think she is having some sort of an identity crises and is trying way too hard. The ‘desperate’ look is not good on anyone.

The outfit is cute, the kids are adorable but did she get her lips blown up again? She’s trying too hard for the sexy lately.

Nia on

Such a shame to read comments I know are coming from other woman so sad everyone has to judge away what are you wearing that’s so fabulous ? This is why young girls struggle with appearance issues mean bitches making comments like this I’d love to see how great you all look with your negative attributes gross

what trash she is on

she always tries wayyyy to hard to look trashy…need attention much Jessica?? feel sorry for the inappropriate image of a real woman that you are sending to your daughter:( I think what might really be going on is that Jessica is trying to stay relevant via her husbands eyes to make other women feel less than due to her over exuberant trashiness…which revels her true insecurities…

Krista on

@ Megan, hilarious! And spot on!

Angelika on

She has adorable kids.

Kate on

Cute kids, stupid names. Not as bad as her sister’s kids’ names, but still…

Dee on

Just because someone comments a dislike for an outfit it doesn’t make one jealous or low self image…there is such a thing as appropriate and inappropriate. Girls today have horrible body image because skanks like this and the Kardashians try to make it ok to dress this way. It is the only way they can get in the headlines and stay appropriate.

Jim on

@Volly Simpson does not do or has little decision making in designing clothes. They only slap her name on the merchandise.

Zonna on

Yay it seems they have an amazing time at the birthday party.

guest on

Jessica’s outfit accentuates her squared beefiness. Jessica’s head is shaped like a block that sits directly atop her square torso because she has no neck, all of which is propelled by two massive leg slabs.

If someone put a bikini an a mini fridge and topped the whole thing off with a blonde wig, it would be Jessica Simpson’s twin.

Guest on

Her kids look so much alike! Cuties!!

Olay on

Yay they look like have a good time on birthday party.

stacey on

Those shoes her son is wearing are god-awful hideous. Her outfit?!?!?!

jessica is a fat drunk moron on

Jessica is a fat d r u n k moron. Bet she was wasted as usual at this poor child’s birthday party.

sam on

Her son’s hair is so long, he looks like a girl.

jc on

Her kids are so adorable. And people, get over her outfit. It’s a backyard POOL (swim) birthday party.
