Jessica Simpson named godmother of Donald Faison's newborn daughter

Singer-turned-fashion mogul Jessica Simpson has landed a new role as godmother to best pal Cacee Cobb's newborn daughter.

Scrubs star Donald Faison and his wife Cobb announced the birth of their second child together on Friday (24Apr15) and Simpson was among the first to meet the tot.


She shared a photo of herself cradling the baby girl on Instagram.com later on Friday and revealed she had been asked by the new parents to serve as the kid's godmother.


In the accompanying caption, Simpson wrote, "Madly in love with my Goddaughter Wilder Frances Faison!!! I am beyond proud of (Cobb and Faison)."


Little Wilder is a sister for the couple's 20-month-old son Rocco, whose godfather is Faison's former Scrubs co-star Zach Braff.


Faison also has four children from previous relationships.
