Jessica Simpson Gives Birth
Congrats are in order for Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson. After being preggers for what felt like forever, the singer/actress/designer/reality star has given birth to a daughter today (May 1) in Los Angeles and has named her Maxwell Drew Johnson.
While at first the name “Maxwell” might raise a few eyebrows, given its masculine history and the fact that fellow pop stars Jennifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera have little boys named Max and have helped make the name in vogue in recent years, Simpson might be turning the tide on the moniker. She may very well be giving it a new surge of popularity for females. Plus, she can call her Maxie! Cute, right?
Simpson revealed the sex of her baby when she posed naked for the April cover of ELLE.
Welcome to the world, Maxwell Drew Johnson. We cannot wait to see the first photos of you, little one! When will you get your first pair of Louboutins? Your mom wore heels all through her pregnancy and we expect you to be genetically predisposed to wearing heels.
According to her site, Maxwell weighed in at 9 lbs., 13 oz and that grandma Tina Simpson gave her her middle name. Hmm, anyone else notice that “Drew” is also the name of Simpson’s former brother-in-law, Drew Lachey, as she was once married to Nick Lachey? Pure coincidence, we’re sure.
