So, we know that heavily pregnant Jessica Simpson is having a baby girl but she is not having twins so … while we wait for the blessed moment when baby Simpson busts forth from her loins, let’s consider baby names. According to a new report out today, Jessica has allegedly decided on a name for her as-yet unborn child. A “friend” of Simpson‘s maintains that Jessica and fiancée Eric Johnson have a kind of unconventional name picked out for their baby girl. Click below to find out what it is.
Choosing a baby name can be tricky, so it’s no surprise that Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson were, until recently, at an impasse about what to call their soon-to-be born daughter. “They tossed around a lot of names, including some wacky ones like Zinfandel, but couldn’t agree on anything,” a family friend confides. Now, the pair has come to an understanding, and In Touch — which was first to break the news both of Jessica’s pregnancy and of the baby’s sex — can exclusively reveal the unusual (for a girl) moniker. “They’re going to call her Maxwell, Maxi for short,” the friend says. Maxwell is Eric’s middle name, and also his beloved grandma’s maiden name. “Jessica wanted a name with meaning.” And not only has Jessica’s been seen wearing a necklace with a diamond “M” pendant in honor of her little bundle of joy, the couple also already ordered onesies monogrammed with the name! Jessica, 31, is now set to give birth on April 20, three weeks earlier than her original due date. “She’s gained so much weight and the baby is so big that doctors pushed up the date,” reveals her friend. And while the thought of giving birth freaks her out, “Jessica and Eric are so eager to meet Maxwell!”
HMMM … I have to say … I’m not sure that I really believe this report. I was on board until the claim was made that Jessica was seriously considering naming her daughter Zinfandel. LOL! That being said, I would not be surprised if Jess does go with an M name. The fact that she’s wearing an M pendant might be the best piece of evidence that a name has been chosen. I know a lot of people are thinking Jess would go with a name like Daisy Mae or something like that but … I guess it’s possible that she’ll call her child Maxi. What do y’all think? Does it seem likely to you that Jessica would name her daughter Maxwell?
