When it came time for Ace’s new big boy haircut, a pregnant Jessica Simpson said having her 5-year-old sit in the barber’s chair was upsetting, but she realized her little guy was ready for a new look.

Many fans praised the singer and fashion mogul for acknowledging the fact that Ace Knute isn’t a baby anymore and supported her choice to allow him to make the final decision about finally chopping off his long mane.

As reported by US weekly, Ace’s hair sparked controversy last year when some said his long hair made him look like a little girl.

Perhaps Ace has acquired a new sense of style, or maybe he just wanted a short, simple haircut like his dad or other boys his age. Whatever the case may be, the time had come for change and Simpson could no longer protest the idea of cutting his baby locks.

However, the celeb mom shared a pic on Instagram saying it broke her heart to give him a fresh cut. Simpson wrote:

He really wanted short hair. It broke my heart a little, but we did it!! My little man ?#ACEKNUTE

While some critics who disliked his shoulder-length locks said he was overdue for a haircut, others expressed sympathy for the expecting mother-of-two. One commenter wrote:

So cute! My son is 4.5 and keeps saying he wants short hair like his brothers. I just can’t do it yet.

But according to some fans Simpson should be applauded for her parenting decision. Commenters wrote:

Love how you let your son have a choice in how he wanted HIS hair… it awesome that you listened… he’s adorable with short hair.

I praised her for loving him with his long hair and for allowing him to make the choice to cut his hair short. She loves her child no matter what his hair looks like, although she herself prefers it one way.

YES!! So much truth here. Long hair, short hair… he’s healthy and happy which is all that matters!

Several parents said his first haircut is a rite of passage, and moms may need to prepare emotionally but not boys.
