(Reuters) – Actress, singer and fashion designer Jessica Simpson gave birth to her first baby on Tuesday, a 9 lb. 13 oz.
girl named Maxwell Drew Johnson.
Simpson and her former football player fiancé Eric Johnson announced Maxwell’s arrival
on her website, saying the baby girl was 21-3/4 inches long.
“We are so grateful for all the love, support and prayers
we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives,” the couple said.
Simpson, 31, and
Johnson, 32, became engaged in November 2010, but have yet to set a wedding date.
Simpson rose to fame as a teen pop
star and became a household name after starring in a TV reality show with then new husband Nick Lachey, a member of the boy
band 98 Degrees. The pair divorced after three years of marriage.
She went on to star in the 2005 film version of “The
Dukes of Hazzard” and re-invented herself as a country singer in 2008. She currently designs apparel, accessories and other
fashion products and is a mentor on the TV contest “Fashion Star.”
Johnson is a former U.S. professional football
player whose career spanned seven seasons for both the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints.
