Mrs. Carter: The moment has finally arrived — Jessica Simpson is now a mom!
Despite all of the rumors that have popped up regarding the status of her pregnancy with Eric Johnson over the course of the past several months, the “Fashion Star” mentor welcomed a baby girl early Tuesday.
The news was first announcement in a statement posted on Simpson’s official website:
“Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl Maxwell Drew Johnson … We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives.”
Early reports claim that the new addition weighed close to ten pounds at the time of birth — and now, Simpson will finally be able to attend media sessions and interviews without people asking about what it is like being pregnant. (Granted, now they will ask more about what it is like being a mom.)
New episodes of Jessica’s NBC reality series air Tuesday nights at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time after “The Voice.”
