After what seemed like years, Jessica Simpson gave birth to her first child Maxwell Drew Johnson (that’s Maxi-Pad to the rest of the world), on Tuesday. Maxwell came in at 9 lbs, 13 ounces and was delivered via c-section since she was already walking and had a mouthful of teeth.
“We are so grateful for all the love, support and prayers we have received. This is been the greatest experience of our lives,” she posted on her website announcing the birth of her baby.
If you’re wondering about that name like we are, Jessica told Elle magazine back in April that they were planning on giving her an unusual name, but it would be something that had meaning for them. Maxwell is her fiance Eric Johnson‘s middle name, while Drew is her mother Tina‘s maiden name. Here I thought they just really liked coffee, or sexy R&B singers and cute ex-brothers-in-law (Drew Lachey.) A few weeks ago, Simpson and Johnson had a Charlotte’s Web themed baby shower where Jessica’s sister Ashlee and friend Jessica Alba were in attendance. Jessica’s ex-husband Nick Lachey and his wife Vanessa also congratulated the couple on their new bundle of joy by sending a basket from Cookies By Design to their room at Cedars-Sanai. (C’mon. You KNOW Vanessa is not about seeing Jessica all itty-bitty again–hence the COOKIES. Gurrrrrl.)
Nick and Jessica were married for three years before they divorced in 2005. The Lacheys are expecting their first child later this year.
Maybe Jessica will send them a pair of baby heels and a lifetime supply of Sprinkles Cupcakes to Vanessa. I recognize passive-aggressive bitchy behavior when I see it…don’t you?
