Jessica Simpson, who has been heavily pregnant since anyone can remember, has announced via her website that she gave birth this morning to a healthy baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson. Baby Maxwell weighs in at a whopping 9 lbs. and 13 oz. and is almost 22 inches tall. Simpson writes, "We are so grateful for all the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!" Now, Maxwell has approximately nine month to get herself in shape and land a contract if she wants to beat out Harper Beckham as the youngest celebrity baby model around. [JessicaSimpson.com]
