Maxwell weighed 9 lbs. 13 ounces.

Since announcing her pregnancy last Halloween over Twitter, Simpson posed nude for the cover of Elle magazine, shared her cravings like salted cantaloupe and pop tarts and joked about her excess of amniotic fluid on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Maxwell is the first child for 31-year-old Simpson and her 32-year-old fiance Eric Johnson, a former NFL player.

The name is a tribute to the couple’s families: Maxwell is Johnson’s middle name and the maiden name of his mother, and Drew is Simpson’s mother’s maiden name.

“We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received,” Simpson said in a statement on her website. “This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!”

Simpson had come in for some ribbing about her seemingly endless pregnancy. She kept up public appearances, including on NBC’s “Fashion Star,” and used Twitter to send pregnancy updates, such as her dream of wearing a leopard caftan in the hospital.

Recently even celebrities like Katy Perry and Chelsea Handler posted tweets asking if the singer and fashion designer had given birth yet. “I’m getting frightened,” Handler said.

Simpson addressed the rumor mill herself in April, tweeting: “To everyone who keeps congratulating me on the birth of my baby girl … I’m still pregnant!”
