It’s a girl!
Jessica Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson, welcomed their first child this morning in Los Angeles.
“Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson,” she wrote on her website. “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 ounces and was 21 3/4 inches long.
Maxwell is Johnson’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name. And according to Us Weekly, little Maxi gets her middle name from her maternal grandmother, Tina Drew Simpson.
Simpson, 31, and Johnson, 32, got engaged in November 2010 after six months of dating but they decided to hold off on their wedding plans until after the baby’s arrival.
Congratulations to the new parents!
