It’s Official! Jessica Simpson Has Given Birth!


Well that was fast … mere moments after we learned that Jessica Simpson checked herself into the hospital late last night/early this morning we now learn OFFICIALLY that she has given birth to her baby girl — Maxwell Drew. Earlier today, Us Weekly reported the baby’s name and birth weight so they deffo had the scoop. Jess has updated her official website with the happy news, click below to read all the deets about the birth of baby girl Maxwell.

Jessica Simpson is a mom! The star and her fiancé Eric Johnson welcomed daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson on May 1, she announced on her website. “Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson,” she wrote. “We are grateful for all the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!” The baby weighed in at 9 lbs. 13 oz. – and was 21¾ inches long.

And just like that … the eternal gestation period has come to an end. Now we know, for sure, that reports that Jess was naming her daughter Maxwell are true … and just when it seemed like Jessica Simpson might be pregnant forever, she goes and secretly births her baby right under our noses. All kidding aside, this is a happy day for the Simpson and Johnson families so let’s send all of our love and congrats to the happy family. It may take some time but something tells me that we will be meeting Maxwell Drew sooner rather than later. The baby is here, y’all! Cigars all around!

  • DC

    lol Trent exactly a month after you played that April fools joke.. congrats Jessica

    • @DC — Oh yeah! LOL!!

    • rOXy

      @DC was that ONLY a month ago??? Feels more like a year. Time itself must do some kind of odd warp around Jessica.

  • Nat

    Congrats to her and the family!She had to have been tired of and uncomfortable with this never ending pregnancy.Have they double checked that there isn’t a stow away in there?

    • Jenny K.

      That baby was almost 10 lbs! 0_0

  • Lauren

    Finalmente! It should be noted that a 9 lb 13 oz baby is right there at 10 lbs. That’s a big baby! Happy for them :)

  • ClaireMichelle

    FINALLY! Congrats to their little family!

  • shoesofpink

    I’m very happy for them. What a beautiful gift!

  • Megsterg

    Geez, that’s a big baby girl! I’m so happy for them. Jessica will be a great mom. I can’t wait to see the first pictures of Maxwell! I really hate that name for a girl though.

  • Debho

    Maxwell is a boy’s name and Drew really is too. With all of the pretty girls names around, they have to give her a silly name.

  • Yelena

    Maxwell and Mowgli…. They really know how to name kids in that family. Geez

  • Goofy

    Maxwell Drew is a stupid name for a girl.
    I mean…how often is that child going to think, “Man they must have really wanted a boy!”

  • A cool, sassy girl best friend named “Max”? I can dig it. I can see her wearing a baseball cap sideways and helping someone solve mysteries.

  • Sofia

    that is the WORST most effed up name. if you’re gonna give your daughter a boy’s name (and not even a good boys name) at least give the kid a fighting chance with a female middle name so if she doesnt want to be made fun of growing up she can go by that. and you know shes gonna be a girly girl with a mom like jessica simps so i doubt a name like max or drew is going to be very fitting

    • Gal Capone

      Drew Barrymore seems to be doing just fine.

  • rOXy

    Adding my congratulations to the relieved chorus. I am not really liking the name so much, but maybe she’ll grow into it.

  • Sfmom

    I kind of love the nickname Max for a girl. :) although…someone else pointed out – in addition to being her mom’s maiden name, drew is also the name of her ex-BIL. :)
    Congratulations to jessica and family! May 1 (a day for celebrating fertitilty no less!) is a perfect birthday. I hope she had a great delivery and at almost 10lbs, she’s got herself one healthy little baby girl (the big ones often nurse better, have less trouble breathing etc). very happy she’s finally welcomed her baby!

  • D

    What a Terrible and Mean name to give to a Girl! Maxine would have been fine. Drew is fine, I don’t care what a Middle name is. But why would anyone name a Girl, Maxwell? Every translation and history of the name is strongly Male. And what are their future kids going to be named if they have any more? I don’t know if it would be More or Less evil to roll with an Ethan or Emma the next time around.

    • D

      And to think about it, I can hear the jokes now. “You were so fat when you were born, they had to name you Maxwell. ” :-\

  • Juniormint

    Should have named the little one Maxine…smh

  • Chris

    Wish people would quit stealing boy names for girls! Parents of girls already have about three times as many names to choose from!

  • Kourtney

    For someone who wants to dress her baby girl in stilletos and cotton candy she picked a name that almost guarantees her a tomboy!

  • Ama

    Congrats to them.

    As for the name-it’s a name. There are worse ones out there. Jessica and her partner have thier reasons for naming thier child what they want. As long as the child is cared for and loved, it’s name shouldn’t be an issue.

    Who knows, maybe they’ll end up changing the name or if the child really hates her name when she gets older she can change it or just go by a name she prefers.

  • cinner

    Wow so sad people have nothing better to do with their lives than trash this beautiful baby and her parents because they don’t like the name chosen for her. WHO CARES. Not everyone has the same name preferences get over yourselves! Smh…. She is a healthy baby girl and that’s what is important. Congratulations to her parents and their families!

  • ClaireMichelle

    I guess since we have known the name would be Maxwell that it has completely grown on me because I kind of like it… A lot of you guys seem to HATE it. Whoa. Luckily, it is not your name! I think this little girl will be juuuust fine.

    • @ClaireMichelle — I agree, I think it’s so silly for people to be so opinionated about other people’s names. Even the whacky names, I don’t mind them. We are all individuals, every single one of us is unique … no offense but there are far too many Michaels and Jennifers in the world. Little Maxie will be just fine :)

  • Courtney

    celebs are damned if they do damned if they don’t Maxwell is a name in Jessica’s fiance’s family & Drew is her mother Tina’s maiden name that’s like if Annabel Clark had a daughter and named her Elizabeth Jane after Elizabeth Taylor who was a friend of her mothers and Jane after her cousin Natasha Richardson’s middle name or Joanne Lynn after Joanne Woodward and her late mother Lynn Redgrave

  • kat :)

    Congrats to the new parents! That’s the same size as my Izzy was :)

    I think the name is fine, but I’m confused- didn’t she say it would make sense when the baby got here? I was assuming she meant to the fans, and it doesn’t make sense to me?? I was expecting a big “AHA!” moment ;)

  • sam

    I remember when she appeared on a newly wed show with Nick. That innocent Christian girl has no trace of innocence or decency. Money changes people. Everyone tries to sacrifice their babies to the public eyes to make money. Trust me, she will make a lot of money by selling her baby picture too.

  • stabber

    god her ass is huge
