Jessica Simpson’s A New Mom (Finally)!

PUBLISHED ON 05/01/2012

Congratulations to Jessica Simpson, who gave birth this morning in an LA hospital. She and fiance Eric Johnson are now proud parents to baby girl Maxwell Drew Johnson, who weighed in at 9 pounds 13 ounces and measured 21 3/4 inches, the couple announced on Jessica's website.

We've been waiting for this news for what seems like a long time! Jessica famously announced her pregnancy on Halloween, when she tweeted a photo of herself in a mummy costumeand wrote, "I'm going to be a mummy."

People.com reports that Maxwell is dad Eric's middle name, and Drew is Jessica's mom Tina's maiden name. We're excited to hear more about baby Maxwell soon!
