LOS ANGELES, California – After seemingly setting a record for the longest pregnancy (just yesterday we published a story about her passing her due date), Jessica Simpson has finally given birth today (May 1 in the U.S.) to a baby girl she and fiance Eric Johnson named Maxwell Drew Johnson.

Maxwell Drew came out a whopping 9 lbs. and 13 oz. heavy.

The size of Simson’s baby bump before giving birth was a butt of jokes. Jimmy Kimmel in his talk show even asked her in a recent guesting, “You sure you’re not having twins?”

Simpson gave birth at Cedar Sinai Hospital, now known to be the ‘birthing center to the stars’ for their lavish birthing suites. Inside Edition reports that Simpson stayed in a suite within the price range of US$ 37,000/day.

Joe Simpson, Jessica’s father and manager, tweeted, “Proud PaPa Joe! Beautiful baby girl! What a miracle!” –
