Jessica Simpson has been pregnant for what seems like FOREVER but she has FINALLY given birth!
But according to US gossip sites TMZ and US weekly, the US star has FINALLY given birth this morning.
US weekly posted on their website that the baby has been called Maxwell Drew Johnson (Drew is named after her maternal grandmother Tina Simpson, whose middle name is Drew) and weighed in at a whopping 9lb 13.
In a post on her official website, Jessica confirmed the news, saying
“Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson. We are so grateful for the love, support and prayers we’ve received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!”
Reports earlier revealed that Jessica Simpson and several members of her family had checked into an LA hospital this morning.Apparently her mum Tina, sister Ashlee Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson’s parents all turned up for the event.
“To everyone who keeps congratulating me on the birth of my baby girl…I’m still pregnant!! Don’t believe what you read ladies and gents.”
She then told followers she’d dreamt about giving birth (we don’t blame her it had been long enough!). The baby is the first child for Jessica Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson.
Jess revealed that beauty Jessica Alba is going to be her baby-weight-loss inspiration once the little one comes along. American TV personality Ryan Seacrest tweeted this afternoon to wish Jessica Simpson luck for pushing.
“Finally! @JessicaSimpson is at the hospital having her baby! Good luck jess #PUSH”
