Jessica Simpson Welcomes Baby Girl

Jessica Simpson had a baby girl, and everyone in Hollywood is breathing a sigh of relief for the actress. INSIDE EDITION has the scoop.


It's a girl for Jessica Simpson.

Here's your first look at the official birth announcement on Jessica Simpson's website. The announcemnt reads:

Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson. 9 lbs. 13 oz., 21 3/4"

We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received.

This has been the greatest experience or our lives!

Jessica reportedly checked in at Los Angeles's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center early Tuesday morning. The hospital is known as the birthing center to the stars, because of its luxurious maternity ward known for gourmet meals and plush beds for guests. Julia Roberts and Britney Spears are among the  famous personalities who have given birth there.

Jessica's family, including her mom Tina, dad Joe, and sister Ashlee, were photographed rushing to the hospital. Also getting their first look at baby Maxwell were Jessica's fiancé's parents.

Jessica's dad tweeted: "Proud PapaJoe!! Beautiful baby girl...What a miracle!"

Jessica chose family names for her daughter. Maxwell is her fiancé, Eric Johnson's middle name. Drew is Jessica's mother's maiden name.

Jessica's size has been the buzz of the nation for weeks. Fans gaped at her appearances on late night talk shows. Through it all, Jessica ignored the chatter and proudly celebrated her pregnancy

Now, everyone's talking about the size of her baby.

NYU Medical Center Ob/Gyn Dr. Ashley Roman told INSIDE EDITION, "A 9 pound, 13 ounce baby...that's a big baby. There are risks to both the mother and the baby when the baby is big like this. It increases the risk that the mother could have hemorrhage after delivery."

Now that baby Maxwell is here, Jessica can stop worrying about her baby weight and start enjoying the joys of motherhood.
