Motherhood will surely make the already inseparable pals even more closer with plenty of baby play dates lined up in future for the best friends.

Jessica Simpson’s best friend and former assistant CaCee Cobb and Donald Faison, her husband, have welcomed their first child together. It’s a boy!

“Scrubs” actor Donald Faison, 39, welcomed a son with wife CaCee Cobb, 36, on Thursday and like many celebs, took to Twitter to let the world know.

“Yesterday @caceecobb and I welcomed the most amazing little boy into our lives! Oh Happy Day!!” he tweeted on Friday. He followed up his excitement with a “So in love” tweet Saturday.

Which was soon followed by CaCee, who gushed that the arrival of her son was “the happiest day of my life.”

It’s the first child for Cobb, 35, best known as Jessica Simpson’s best friend who appeared in Simpson’s MTV reality series Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica.

Donald Faison is also dad to four other children: Son Kobe, 11, twins Dade and Kaya, 13, and son Sean, 16, from two previous relationships.  Cobb and Faison married in December 2012 and announced the pregnancy a month later. This is Cobb’s first child and Faison’s fifth.

The couple first announced that they were expecting with a Facebook photo of a tiny T-shirt featuring a baby-sized Star Wars stormtrooper.

“Looks like Donald Faison and I are going to have a little stormtrooper of our own!” the first-time mom captioned the adorable snapshot. “We’re over the moon!” she added a few days later, in a message thanking fans for their well-wishes.

Donald told People during Cacee’s pregnancy: “They hang out all the time anyway, but now they hang out and talk baby stuff, look at baby stuff online, and go shopping for baby stuff together.”

“Imagine, you and your best friend pregnant at the same time … CaCee’s loving it.”

The news comes just three weeks after Jessica gave birth to her son Ace in July with retired NFL star Eric Johnson, taking their brood to two.

Ace Knute Johnson was born in Los Angeles after Jessica, 32, had a scheduled C-section. The Fashion Star mentor accidentally revealed she and her fiancé, a former NFL player and Yale grad, were having a son during a TV interview with Jimmy Kimmel in March.

The couple’s rep says: “Jessica, Eric and Maxwell are thrilled to welcome the new addition to their family.”

The proud parents, Donald and CaCee, tied the knot in December. Simpson, who attended as a bridesmaid, hadn’t confirmed her own pregnancy news yet, but folks were starting to speculate. The couple first announced they were expecting in January.

Once it was general knowledge that both Cobb and Simpson were expecting at the same time, however, they were free to be super-psyched for each other out in the open. Simpson threw her pal’s baby shower and Faison called the pair “a good team” back in February.

Cobb isn’t the only one in the family with famous friends like Simpson. Faison’s close buddy and co-star on “Scrubs” for almost a decade Zach Braff responded to the birth saying, “Thank you @caceecobb. @donald_faison and I will take it from here.”
