After weeks of speculation that she’d secretly had her baby girl already, the seemingly pregnant forever Jessica Simpson has actually, really, finally gave birth to her daughter with fiance Eric Johnson. “Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson,” reads a pink announcement on JessicaSimpson.com. And now we know why the singer/fashionista has looked like she was ready to pop for the past few months, Maxwell weighed in at 9 lbs, 13 oz. and is 21 and 3/4″ long.
“We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received,” the announcement continues. “This has been the greatest experience of our lives.”
Between her healthy size and the name Maxwell Drew, we’re not sure if Jessica is following through on her plan to have a super girly girl. “I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” Simpson told Elle in March. “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”
