Jessica Simpson: ‘I am so in love with baby Maxwell, I want to cry every time I look at her’

Jessica Simpson finally gave birth to her daughter Maxwell Drew last week, on May 1st. Since the birth, the tabloids have been full of stories based on “unnamed sources” that sound a great deal like Papa Joe Simpson (especially the stuff about Jessica and breastfeeding, of course). But until now, Jessica hasn’t said anything beyond the official announcement on her website. Last night, Jessica finally tweeted about her baby girl, writing, “I am so in love with baby Maxwell. I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced.”

[Via Jessica’s Twitter]

She’s so cute. I really do like Jessica, you know. I think she needs a better internal filter so she doesn’t end up giving interviews about her bodily functions, and I’m going to be forever haunted by the visual of her gushing amniotic fluid, but still, I like her. I hope motherhood is everything and more for Jess. Also: what do you think of Jessica using her daughter’s full name, Maxwell? I thought she was going to call her “Maxi”? Did she have second thoughts?

Life & Style (via HL) also has a source who claims that “Maxwell looks a lot like her mom: same cheeks and nose! Her hair’s brown, but it’s getting blonder every day.” Yes, because heaven forbid Jessica Simpson give birth to a brunette!!! The (blonde) angels would weep. The friend also says that Jessica is breastfeeding like a champ and she’s changing diapers too: “She was born for this role.”

And Jessica covers the new issue of Us Weekly.

    Jessica Simpson is so dumb she diets when she could just get lipo or something.

    • Dinah says:

      lipo takes away the normal storage areas so fat deposits in weird places like all over the arms & the back & where ever.

      better to change your habits than suck it out.

      • DesertRose says:

        +1 My mom had lipo on her belly, flanks, and hips. Now a lady that forever had beautiful legs has these weird fat pouches above her knees. And it’s only been four years,and she’s an athletic woman like me. Your body only has so many fat cells, they get larger, they don’t multiply, so when you remove them from somewhere, expect others to compensate. Best to go natural (says the 30-year old mother of two who had a breast lift and tummy tuck last year). Point being, lose the weight than fix the skin, much better results.

      your mama’s so dumb she went to dr dre for a pap smear!

    • Samigirl says:

      Nice White Chicks reference ;-)

  2. Tiffany27 says:

    I hope she’s breastfeeding. Home girl could feed a country with those bad boys.

    • brin says:

      …says she’s “breastfeeding like a champ” (she must be eating Wheaties before she pumps!).

  3. margaret says:

    “..and she’s changing diapers too”. Duh, what an inane comment — last time I checked, newborns don’t arrive fully potty trained.

    • CindyBman says:

      I totally understand what you are saying, but do you think JLo or Beyonce or insert-any-diva-or-spoiled-actress-here has EVER changed a diaper? *Maybe* a pee-diaper but *never* a poo-diaper! :)

  4. I.want.shoes says:

    Maybe she finally noticed that “Maxi” is even worse than “Maxwell?

  5. Happymom says:

    Big boobs does not make it easier to bf-if anything, it’s more difficult because they’re in the way of the poor baby’s face. I hope she’s having an easy time of it-but I wouldn’t be so sure. BTDT.

    • Dawn says:

      I had big boobs and had a terrible time breastfeeding. In fact my milk never came in. It was awful.

    • jaye says:

      When I gave birth my breast were double E’s. I tried to breast feed but every time I tried to get my son to latch on he’d turn his head. My mom used to joke and say it was his survival instincts kicking in because he thought I was trying to suffocate him.

      • CJK says:

        My sister went up to an H cup. I swear it looked like she was across the room from her baby when she was feeding him.

      • Samigirl says:

        Oh! That’s funny/sad, lol! I’m only a B-Cup (seriously, the boob fairy must have forgotten where I live), and I have to pull my breast back bc her face is so buried, my LC warned me of suffocating. I couldn’t imagine being bigger!

    • the original bellaluna says:

      OMG, my boobs were bigger than my babies’ heads. (I was a FFF.)

      Try putting all that (aereola and nipple) into a newborn’s mouth.

      It’s hard; it hurts (for awhile); and you can drown your kid when your milk lets down. (From experience.)

  6. Lauren says:

    As far as calling her by her full name- I did the same thing when my daughter was born. It’s such an adjustment to realize that there’s a whole person that’s looking at you and it takes some time to feel like, YES this is her name, etc. We called mine by her first AND middle name for a few months!

    • TQB says:

      ohmygosh, i just realized i did the same thing – called my son by first and middle incessantly in the beginning. Wow, that’s weird, right?

  7. LadyJane says:

    Are those photos of Jess before giving birth? She doesn’t look so huge to me. And well done to her for wearing high heels – no way could I have managed that.

  8. fabgrrl says:

    “Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced.”

    The baby is ONE WEEK old. Jessica, you haven’t even gotten your feet wet!

    • Relli says:

      RIGHT! That’s like the parents who say they are ready for number 2 when the 1st kid is only 6 months old… its like whoa, wait for the toddler years you haven’t seen nothing yet.

      • Red Granny says:

        You are right, but she (and those parents you are talking about) is (are) just happy.

    • mommaq says:

      Harsh and judgmental.

  9. ladybert62 says:

    I think she will be a good mom!

  10. lola says:

    congrats jess!!!

  11. mel2 says:

    I am happy for her. I cant wait to see the baby.

  12. Alexis says:

    Looks to me like these are post birth pictures…her belly was giant, and it seems like she gained weight everywhere, so she’s not going to look tiny immediately. Or maybe that dress is just ah-mazngly flattering.

  13. Dibba says:

    me too

  14. Anastasia says:

    Good for her. You should feel that way about your baby!

    As for her baby being blonde, Jessica is actually a brunette.

    I used to really dislike her a few years back, but I’ll admit she’s grown on me a LOT.

  15. Rhea says:

    She’s sweet and harmless… I think being a mom will fits her well. She will finally found someone who loves her to bits without caring about her weight and someone she could love back unconditionally. :) Congrats, Jess!

    • Agnes says:

      well said. :) i also wish her nothing but the best.

    • Chatcat says:

      I agree…well said. Like Kaiser mentioned, she may be missing a few filters sometimes but really there is something down to earth about that fact that is endearing.

  16. Zigggy says:

    They should call her Max instead of Maxi- way cuter.

    • Justaposter says:

      Zigggy I agree!

      I can’t hate on her, she is in new mommy bliss. Nothing wrong with that.

    • Red Granny says:

      Yes, Max is an awesome name for a girl.

      • TQB says:

        I love the name Max. I guess I don’t get the hate of “Maxwell” because I just assumed she would eventually just be Max. Adorable.

  17. Dee Cee says:

    Trashy, pretty and rich with debatable intelligence, dull witted remarks often makes a person appear unstable, unreliable and insincere..

  18. Samigirl says:

    I think it’s sweet. It’s a good feeling. :-)

  19. Relli says:

    Must jump over to Suri’s Burn Book to see what she has to say about this.

  20. riri says:

    Now that is a normal response of a mother who just gave birth.

    Not talking about not feeling beautiful during labor.

    I really like Jessica. I’m sure she is going to be a good mother, and she seems more normal than most hollywood moms.

  21. Jordan says:

    I like that Jessica Simpson has no filter…it makes her more endearing. Plus, she’s certainly not boring which is more than I can say for the other Jessica’s, LOL!

  22. the original bellaluna says:

    I think that’s a pretty normal reaction.

    Wait until the kid’s 2 or 3, tear-assing around the house with a Sharpie (which Lord only knows how she got a-hold of) and colouring on every single surface in which she comes into contact.

    Or terrorising the cat/dog/both.

    Or resetting her computer to some foreign language font that she can’t change. (True story.)

    Or be-heading all the squash in the produce drawer and strewing it about the house. (True story.)

    Or making mud-pies out of her Lancome (or whatever high-end product) moisturiser and powder. And steals her MAC make-up (teenagers – true story).

    Or using her razor to shave off 4 inches of shin skin (true story).

    Honey, we all cry when we see our beautiful little babies asleep. God made it that way so we don’t kill them for all the stuff they do when they’re awake.

    TRUTH.
