Just a girl and her dad! Eric Johnson sure is climbing up the adorable meter with his baby girl Maxwell! Jessica Simpson's fiance and their 19-month-old daughter were spotted taking a morning stroll together in New York City on Thursday, Dec. 5.

During the Soho outing, the former NFL player carried the blonde tot over his right shoulder as if she were flying. Simpson's handsome hubby-to-be wore loose-fitting jeans, a blue long-sleeve shirt and sunglasses. Maxwell, meanwhile, had fun in the air as she bundled up in a long-sleeve pink shirt, a grey t-shirt on top, plus leopard print jeans and gold sneakers.

Johnson and Simpson — also parents to 4-month-old son Ace — have been staying in The Big Apple for the past few days. Two days earlier, the former Fashion Star mentor stunned on the red carpet as she attended the 27th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards at the IAC building on Dec. 3. The Texas native was also joined by Johnson at the event.

The engaged couple have been keeping busy since the start of the holiday season. The family of four all walked the red carpet for the first time en masse as they attended a Dillard's event for Simpson's clothing line in Dallas, Texas on Nov. 23. That same week, they celebrated Thanksgiving in Boston with Johnson's family.

"Eric is such an amazing dad. [Jessica] completely trusts him and has all the confidence in the world with him as a dad," an insider previously told Us Weekly. "She loves Eric's family and is really excited to bring both kids back east and spend Thanksgiving with them."
