Jessica Simpson is known for designing chic bags, but her son is currently rocking a different kind of stylish arm accessory: a plaster cast!

The mom of two revealed in an Instagram post, Tuesday, that her 4½-year-old son Ace Knute broke his arm.

“This kid is breaking more than hearts these days 💔,” she captioned the photo of her little boy, adding the hashtag “#FirstBrokenBone.”

Although she didn’t get into the details of the accident, Simpson revealed “#ICriedMoreThanHeDid” — in fact, he cheerfully smiled for the camera while showing off his neon green cast.

The arm injury comes less than a week after the 37-year-old singer proudly posed with Ace, decked out in a blue suit and bow tie, for his pre-K graduation.

This isn’t the first time Ace has experienced a health scare this year. In February, Simpson shared a photo of her two kids with husband Eric Johnson — Ace and daughter Maxwell “Maxi” Drew, 6 — sprawled out on some furniture. Dressed in comfy duds, the youngsters weren’t quite their usual lively selves.
