Jessica Simpson is finally a mum! The reality TV personality, singer, fashion mogul, 31, and fiance Eric Johnson, 32, gives birth and welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday morning, 1st May, in Los Angeles. “Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson,” she wrote on her website. Maxwell Drew weighed in at 4.38kg (9lbs 13oz) and was 55cm long. Maxwell is Johnson’s middle name and Drew is Simpson’s mother Tina’s maiden name.
Jessica delivered her daughter in a three bedroom, two bathroom deluxe birthing suite at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. which featured pedicures, manicures, and a gourmet, post-dinner birth for two, all for $3,784 a night.

Jessica Simpson’s Empire
Simpson’s branded empire already grosses between $750 million and $1 billion a year. Now, as an entrepreneurial mum, she has yet another platform to her portfolio. Just tweeting, Jessica can make as much as $5000 a tweet about baby things, scooping her seven figures easily! During the pregnancy the celebrity mum gained nearly 18 kg (40lbs) and if she chooses to endorse any of the weight loss programmes, there is a further opportunity to bank a few million dollars! Not bad for motivation! Who knows when the maternity clothes range will come out!
