(LOS ANGELES) — Now that Jessica Simpson finally has her baby, what kind of mom will she be?
The singer and reality TV personality wasn’t shy about revealing the details of her pregnancy leading up to Tuesday’s birth of her first child, daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson. Expect more tweeting and talking now that she’s a mom.
“I think she’s so excited to finally be a mom, it’s something she’s been looking forward to for a really long time, and she wants to share it with all her fans,” said People magazine reporter Lesley Messer. “She was very vocal about her cravings during her pregnancy, she was tweeting photos of the cereal she was eating, so I don’t think it would be surprising if she shared a funny story or two about being a new mom.”
Simpson embraced the celebrity trend of giving your kid an unconventional name (see: Beyonce’s Blue Ivy, Alicia Silverstone’s Bear Blu). The names Maxwell and Drew are reported to have family significance to Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson. Even though little Maxwell may have a hard time finding a license plate keychain with her name on it, Carolyn Castiglia, comedian and blogger for the parenting website Babble, thinks she’ll be just fine.
“At least weird names are hard to make fun of,” she said. “Take Apple and Moses Paltrow. What are the kids at school gonna say? ‘You’re a piece of fruit!’ ‘You’re a historical figure who led his people out of bondage!'”
Simpson, 31, and Johnson, 32, announced the arrival of their daughter on Simpson’s website Tuesday, saying the baby weighed in at 9 lbs., 13 ounces.
