Brief news from here and elsewhere:

— Jessica Simpson had her second child Sunday. This did not make today’s print edition — sorry, B-listers, only the firstborn gets a blurb! — so we are telling you now. His name, Ace, only sounds quirky, but it was the 524th most popular name for boys last year. Middle name: Knute. (People)

–James Woods, 66, has parted ways with his 26-year-old girlfriend of six years (you do the math) and started afresh with a new 20-year-old. (US Weekly, Business Insider)

Guess what Brad Paisley didn’t sing at his Jiffy Lube Live show? That’s right: The blogosphere-loathed “Accidental Racist.” In Virginia this weekend, the country star stuck to a safer script, reports our colleague Emily Yahr. (Washington Post Style)
