Jessica Simpson (finally) has her (big) baby!
Whew! That was a long time coming!
Jessica Simpson gave birth to her first child with fiance' Eric Johnson this morning. The baby, a healthy baby girl that they named Maxwell Drew Johnson, weighed in at 9 lbs and 13 oz. An almost 10 pound baby! No wonder poor Jessica was in hiding!
It seems like ages ago that Jessica Simpson announced to her fans that she was "going to be a mummy". Announced on Halloween, Jessica was wrapped up like, well, a mummy, and sent this photo out to fans:
At that point, Jessica was already looking very pregnant, and rumors had been flying for at least a month prior to the announcement that she was shopping her pregnancy story around to various outlets.
But, according to my calculations, Jessica was only 3 months, maybe 4 months pregnant here! For a first child, that belly bump seems downright impressive. Her growing belly didn't slow down over the next six months, and for the past month Jessica has mostly been in hiding. One of her last major public appearances was in late March, when she walked down the aisle as a bridesmaid at her friend's wedding in a colorful bridesmaids dress.
Even comedienne Chelsea Handler got in on the baby watch fun, tweeting "How has Jessica Simpson still not given birth to this baby? I'm getting frightened."
Although the pregnancy was a normal one, it did seem that she had been visibly pregnant for a very long time - leading some to speculate that Jessica had already given birth and was just waiting to announce it. However, this morning, May 1st, Jessica checked into the hospital with her fiance' and quickly gave birth to their baby daughter, proving all previous speculation to be incorrect.
Now that the baby bump watch is over, let the post-baby-body and baby watch begin!
