Jessica Simpson

FINALLY POPS

Gives Birth to Baby Girl

breaking news

Jessica Simpson delivered her baby: Maxwell Drew Johnson
The Jessica Simpson baby countdown is finally over -- because she just gave birth to a bouncing baby girl ... who weighed 9 pounds 13 ounces and measured in at 21.75 inches!!!

The kid's name is Maxwell Drew Johnson -- which is pretty normal by celebrity baby naming standards.

Jessica and her fiance Eric Johnson decided to use the name Drew because it's Jessica's mother's maiden name.

Jess just released a statement on her website ... saying, "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."

I think Jessica will be an involved and caring mom, it's in her personality.

That poor child is going to be the size of a football player so you might as well give her a dude's name.

Poor kid. I guess her parents wanted a boy.

Well, that's 10 pounds plus fluids she's lost already. On her short frame, that will make a significant difference. If she can just get back that cute shape she had when she was younger, I'm sure she'd feel better and have a lot more confidence, not always having to defend her weight. Congrats, Jessica, and good luck!

So sorry for the baby though with that name choice, guess they really wanted a boy.

Congratulations to Jessica and Eric.

To those panning the name "Maxwell" I went to school with a girl named Maxwell in the late 60's. She was a very attractive young lady and no one would mistake her for a boy. It is no more masculine than Chris, Brooke, or Blake.

Again, congratulations to Jessica and Eric. This is a new chapter in your life that will give you a lot of joy.

Did no one have the common sense to try and talk her out of "Maxwell"?!?? You just KNOW she's dying to blab about pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood, so maybe one day (hopefully soon) she'll let us in on the joke...

Well now...how are we supposed to trust that ANYTHING TMZ has to report is real when they're using such and OBVIOUSLY photoshopped picture of Jessica Simpson to pedle their story? Geez...at least have THAT much self respect in your reporting even if most of it IS complete gossip and B.S., I mean come ON now!
