Jessica Simpson gives birth to baby girl Maxwell Drew Johnson
Jessica Simpson’s baby girl has finally arrived, meeting her mom and daddy Eric Johnson for the first time Tuesday morning in L.A.
Maxwell Drew Johnson weighed in at 9 pounds, 13 ounces, and measured 21¾ inches, according to the announcement on Simpson’s official website, which pronounced the couple “elated” to share the baby news.
“We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received,” the couple said. “This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!”
Folks from both sides of the family – including his parents, her parents and her sister Ashlee – were spotted arriving at the hospital early Tuesday, according to TMZ.
The baby girl will be called Maxi for short, a family friend previously told InTouch magazine, which leaked the then-unconfirmed name in March. Drew is Jessica’s mom’s maiden name. And the last name – well, even though Jessica and Eric have yet to tie the knot, Maxwell looks like a daddy’s girl already.
Simpson and Johnson got engaged in November 2010. The “Fashion Star” mentor announced her pregnancy last Halloween, though by the time she finally made it official, the news was hardly a surprise. And no, she wasn’t pregnant for 45 months, no matter what anyone might have said.
