“Their whole family was around to support them," a source said. "Evan was very emotional and loves Ashlee so much.

Ashlee is doing great and can't wait to get home to be with her family."
30-year-old Simpson and 26-year-old Ross celebrated the impending arrival of their daughter with a lavish baby show in June. 65 people attended the party, including Ross’ mother, Diana Ross.
Simpson and Ross began dating in 2013. They announced their engagement in January 2014 and married in August of the same year. Four months later, they announced they were expecting their first child together.
