jessica simpson pregnant elle cover.jpgAfter weeks of has-she-or-hasn't-she had her baby, it has been confirmed that Jessica Simpson has given birth to a girl. The singer-turned-designer welcomed her first child with fiancé Eric Johnson in LA overnight. The couple have joined the long list of unusual baby names by calling their little girl Maxwell Drew.

Weighing in at a healthy 9 pounds and 13 ounces, we can't help but wonder to why Jessica chose Maxwell (a typical boy name) for her daughter. Perhaps she simply likes the name Max for a girl, or maybe she is a fan of 2 Broke Girls?

Either way the Simpson family was in attendance to help celebrate the newest addition to their brood. New mum Jessica shared a statement on her website writing, "Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson. We are so grateful for all the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!"

If you're wondering what the naked cover, pictured on the left, is all about. Recently Jess posed nude exposing her baby bump for the cover of US Elle. She certainly isn't the first celeb to do so, nor will she be the last. I wonder what little Maxwell will make of it one day.

Congrats to Jess and her new little family!
