Jessica Simpson Welcomes Baby Girl Maxwell Drew Johnson!
Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson are proud to announce the birth of their first child, Maxwell Drew Johnson. Baby Maxwell Drew’s middle name was named after Jessica’s mother’s maiden name. “I really hope I can be half as good of a mom as my mom has been to me,” Jessica says. The couple revealed Maxwell weighed in at a whopping 9lbs and 13oz! Jessica shared the big news via Twitter:
After dating for six months, Jessica, 31, and Eric, 32, got engaged back in November 2010. According to US Magazine, the two have put aside wedding plans until their baby’s arrival. During her March appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, Jessica opened up explaining that Eric “feels like my husband already.”
We weren’t the only ones who long-anticipated the birth of Maxwell. Chelsea Handler tweeted, “How has Jessica Dimpson still not given birth to this baby? I’m getting frightened.” While Katy Perry expressed concern: “Has Jessica Simpson had that baby yet?! I’m getting anxious. Well, Chelsea and Katy, as of today, the answer is YES and YES!
It’s been 7 months since Simpson shared the pregnancy news when she tweeted a simple photo. The picture featured the starlet all dressed up as a mummy for Halloween with a caption: “It’s true! I am going to be a mummy!”
“We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received,” Jessica posted on her website. “This has been the greatest experience of our lives!” The Ryan Seacrest crew would like to congratulate new parents Jessica and Eric! Now, show us those adorable baby pics!
