We have been waiting for this moment since Jessica Simpson and her fiancé Eric Johnson welcomed their daughter Maxwell Drew on May 1st, and today we finally have the FIRST PHOTO of the blessed newborn. Jessica and Eric decided to wait to unveil the first pics of their baby girl, choosing not to unveil the pics themselves, and allegedly sold the photos to People magazine for $800,000. While celebs like Hilary Duff and Beyoncé chose to give away the first photos of their children, other celebs prefer to cash in the huge amounts of money that can come with the rights to those exclusive first pics. Regardless, check out the very first, EXTREMELY CUTE pic of Maxwell Drew Simpson-Johnson.
Welcome to the world Maxwell Drew Johnson. Aren’t you a cutie?! We have been waiting to meet you for weeks now. We waited for what seemed like years for your momma to birth you, and when she did, we waited for those first pics of your adorable little face. But, while the new parents tweeted some snippets of information about their daughter, no pics were released at all, nothing was even leaked. We learned why a couple of weeks ago, and now it is confirmed – People magazine were given the exclusive rights to the first pics of Maxwell Drew.
In this week’s issue, Simpson and Johnson give an exclusive interview, plus share the first photos of their little one, who’s inherited her mom’s eyes and her dad’s calm demeanor. “Life has completely changed,” Simpson, 31, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “From how I sleep to what I think about, Maxwell has definitely taken over everything!” “We stare at her all the time,” says Simpson. “We can’t get enough!”
But becoming new parents hasn’t been without its hardships. Recovering from surgery – Simpson delivered via C-section – isn’t easy, she says, and nursing, which she does throughout the day, has become “a full-on job.” Still, “It’s the worst if I have to pump and give Eric a bottle to give her,” says Simpson. “I miss holding her and having that closeness.”
So, pushing aside the whole ‘selling a photo of your child for $800K thing,’ let’s take a look at the blessed little girl. Maxwell Drew is completely, 100% adorable y’all. Look at her little squishy face, her chubby cheeks, her cherub lips and tiny nose. Ugh, she is such a lil’ munchkin. New mom Jess looks gorgeous too, and seriously happy holding her gorgeous baby girl. I do love this photo and I want more. Now that the Johnson-Simpson family have presumably been given their FAT check, lets hope we get to see some more candid and regular pics of the newborn and the happy family.
