This morning E! and TMZ reported that Jessica Simpson and her family—including sister Ashlee Simpson, mama Tina and papa Joe, and fiancé Eric Johnson's parents—were spotted arriving at a Los Angeles hospital.
And now we know why!
Jessica Simpson gave birth to a baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson, in L.A Tuesday morning. This is her first child with fiance Eric Johnson.
She has just now released an official statement on her website:
"Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl Maxwell Drew Johnson. We are so grateful for all the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!"
According to a source, she takes her middle name (Drew) from her maternal grandmother (Tina Simpson). The baby girl is healthy and weighs 9 lbs. 13 ounces! A source tells Us that "Mother and baby are doing just fine."
Congratulations to both Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson! I'm sure they'll make great parents.
