OK, so officially the news is that Jessica Simpson has given birth to a daughter named Maxwell Drew Johnson. (Yes, you read that correctly: it’s a girl, and her name is Maxwell.) The little girl’s father is the singer’s fiancé, Eric Johnson. As Us Weekly reports, Simpson broke the news on her website, writing, “Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby 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 of our lives!” According to family members, the new mom and her child are both healthy.
So, now that we’ve got that out of the way, I think we know what the real scoop is: Jessica Simpson’s no longer pregnant! Because haven’t we all been remarking for months that she seemed to be constantly on the verge of giving birth? And now that the kid has arrived and she weighs ten pounds, we understand why.
