Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson welcomed a beautiful and very healthy baby girl to the family on May 1st, 2012. Baby Maxwell Drew Johnson weighed in at 9 lbs., 13 oz., and measured at 21 ¾ inches. On Simpson’s website the following day, she wrote: “We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives.”
The chosen name for their newest addition has a special meaning with the couple. Baby Maxwell was named after her maternal grandmother from Eric’s side of the family. Simpson’s mother Tina, whose maiden name is Drew, also played a role when the couple selected their baby girls middle name.
In November of 2010, the couple got engaged just six months after dating. Simpson, 31, and Johnson, 32, have yet to set a wedding date and had planned to hold off walking down the aisle until Maxwell was born. The big news now will be setting a wedding date.
Congratulations to Jess, Eric, and baby Maxwell!
