Jessica Simpson has finally welcomed a baby girl to the world after weeks of concern from celebrity friends.
The American singer and actress and her fiancé Eric Johnson announced baby Maxwell’s arrival on Jessica’s website, along with the following statement:
‘We are so grateful for all the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!’
Maxwell Drew Johnson had a due date of April 20th, which led to some concern about the baby’s late arrival.
Katy Perry even joined in with the speculation, tweeting, ‘Has Jessica Simpson had that baby yet?! I’m getting anxious.’
Simpson responded on Twitter last week: ‘To everyone who keeps congratulating me on the birth of my baby girl…I’m still pregnant!!’
Baby Maxwell Drew Johnson weighed in at 9lbs 13oz and the couple said they were ‘elated’ by the birth of their little girl.
