Congratulations to Jessica & Eric! We can’t wait to see the first pic of baby Maxwell.
We never thought this day would come, but Jessica Simpson finally gave birth to a baby girl May 1 in Los Angeles. Named Maxwell Drew Johnson, whose middle name is also the maiden name of Jessica’s mom Tina Simpson, the new arrival weighs in at 9 lbs., 13 oz., and is 23 1/4 inches long.
“Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson. We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!”
It was beginning to seem like Jessica was going to be pregnant forever, and one NYC obstetrician told HollywoodLife.com on April 30 that labor would likely need to be induced soon.
After endless media speculation, Jessica officially announced her pregnancy Oct. 31 with a tongue-in-cheek blog post. “It’s true, I’m going to be a mummy,” she posted, along with a picture of her Halloween costume — a mummy.
