Jessica Simpson reveals new photos of baby Maxwell: so cute and adorable?

Do you care about new, personal photos of Jessica Simpson and her baby? Why not? I thought we all liked photos of babies. Personally, I’d rather look at photos of puppies or kittens or fashion trainwrecks, but babies make my top ten. Anyway, Jessica Simpson has been “guest editor” (“Queen of the Farts,” I say) for iVillage all week. Jessica released some of these photos on iVillage (the black-and-white pics), and some of them she released on her own site (for Eric’s birthday). I think Maxi is a cutie – and she seems like a really happy baby too! I actually love the photo of Maxi laughing while Eric holds her. Here’s some of the stuff Jessica has said on iVillage:

It’s been a whirlwind two years for Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson! Together since the spring of 2010, the happy couple (pictured in N.Y.C. on Sept. 11) met at a party at her house and have been crazy about each other ever since. They were engaged about six months after they started dating and by the sound of what Simpson told iVillage exclusively, they’re a perfect match. “He loves very easily — as do I — and I think that together, [we're] just a really healthy combination.”

Eric and Jessica welcomed daughter Maxwell Drew four months ago, and the star told iVillage that seeing her fiance with their baby is not only extremely sexy, but it’s also very gratifying.

“It’s really great to have given him a blessing like this — to be able to bring [Maxwell] into his life,” she tells us. “It makes me feel really good that I could do that for him.”

We know how Jess feels about her honey, but did Eric get the thumbs up from her tight-knit circle of friends? Absolutely! “Eric is just so amazing!” gushes Jessica’s best friend CaCee Cobb to iVillage. “It’s really great to see her with this guy that’s just really down to earth, very humble, very smart and literally adores her. I’m happy it’s really grown to this, and I couldn’t imagine her having a baby with anyone else in this world other than him.”

That one quote bugs the hell out of me: “It’s really great to have given him a blessing like this — to be able to bring [Maxwell] into his life. It makes me feel really good that I could do that for him.” I’m not going to harp on and on about that and overanalyze it to death (I’ll let you guys do that!), but it does bug me. I think I know what she’s trying to say… that her baby is a blessing, and he’s a great dad, etc. But the way she words it… it makes me uncomfortable.

    I have to say, that is one really cute baby.

  2. JoeBanana says:

    Wow, she looks so much like her Mom….what a beauty!

  3. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I’m not one to go crazy over babies but this baby is freakin’ CUTE.

    @ Kaiser-I know what you mean by the wording of her statement. You’re right not to harp on it and I get what she’s saying but it just comes across like she’s a baby donor/baby creator and that she gifted him with a child/heir. It’s sort of an old-fashioned way of saying things.

    Regardless, that baby is ADORABLE.

    • Tillie says:

      I totally agree with you. Eric must also have done his part to ‘create’ Maxwell.. Anyways, they make a cute couple and little Maxi is really adorable!

    • the original bellaluna says:

      OKitt, I get what both you and Kaiser are saying. I don’t really care for the wording, either, but I kind of understand it.

      I consider Toddles a gift to Hubs, because he’s his “second chance” to parent as an older, more mature person than he was when he had his other son with his vindictive ex. But Toddles is also his gift to me, because I had both of my older kids relatively young as well. (Though I did get to raise both of mine to adulthood.)

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @ Bells-Yeah but see how you phrased it? It’s the context that makes it sound so heartfelt and sweet, you know? In your case, I can truly see how a baby would feel like a gift.

        There’s just something about the way Jessica phrases it that sounds very antiquated and the feminist in me feels a knee-jerk reaction to revolt. But again, probably overanalyzing.
        Anyway, the baby is ridiculous, especially in second pic-the eyes!

    • Canda says:

      I see it from both sides… I see Jessica the doting idiot who thinks this dweeb is the best guy ever and she’s “giving” him a present, and then I can also see it from the perspective of a loving mother and wife/gf putting in her 9 months to bring something into the relationship that makes their partner happy. I feel the same way about giving my husband children… I’m not “giving” him my children and I’m certainly not doing it strictly for his entertainment, but it’s a special ability only women have and it can be a very powerful feeling of “hey, look what we made together (even though I did most of the work)” and really, when you’re so happy with your man and child, feminism goes right out the window.

  4. Aria says:

    Beautiful baby! Jessica is a lucky girl :)

  5. littlestar says:

    We may laugh that he’s her K-Fed, but this Eric Johnson fellow actually seems really happy with Jessica and to be a dad.

  6. Veronica says:

    Omg that baby is SO CHUBS and CUTE!

  7. V4Real says:

    Say what you want about Jessica that baby is beautiful.

  8. G says:

    That is one cutie pie!

    Cacee Cobb’s statments bugged me more. Is she taking shots at Nick? (or am I just starting sh*t?)

    Could be I just need more coffee! :)

  9. lucy2 says:

    Cute baby!
    That wording is a bit funky to me too, but I’m not a mom so I’ve never been in that position to feel that way.

  11. mzthirtyeight says:

    What a goof pretty lil babypie lol!

  12. Jessica says:

    Let’s see if Eric and Jessica are even together 4 years from now. (I doubt it).

  13. Macey says:

    her baby is adorable but her bf is another matter. theres just something about him that bugs me.

    • Jessica says:

      Me too, For some reason I doubt they will get married and they will eventually break up.

      IMO, I think if they really loved each other they would have gotten married while she was pregnant. She’s already been married before so it’s not like this is her first marriage and she has to have everything perfect.

      and the fact that she got engaged 2 weeks after Nick did says something towards her feelings for him, She can say she’s moved on all she wants but why get engaged 2 weeks after your ex husband did?


  14. Sirsnarksalot says:

    Giving him a “gift”of a child is really such a 1950′s throwback. It’s an antiquated way of looking at becoming a family and a woman’s role. Which is extra bizarre considering she makes all the money an has the career while he is the “stay at home mom” in their little universe. She tries to craft a public persona for herself that just doesn’t fit. It like the weight thing “I’m struggling just like you” when we all know she’s nothing like us with her bazillion dollars and personal trainer. Her family is adorable. I just wish she’d keep her big trap shut!

    • Jessica says:

      I thought it was an odd remark.

      I really doubt they will get married and they will eventually break up.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Yeah … I don’t know that I can give her the benefit of the doubt here either. I actually think she did mean exactly what she said and it reveals a lot about how she views motherhood. They look really happy and the baby is adorable so I won’t sh*t on her too much. But in my experience, people really mean what they say and trying to make it sound better in our heads or guessing “what she really meant” won’t help.
      She could have worded it so many other ways but this one seems pretty clear to me. How about “Maxi is such a blessing for us and I’m so happy I got to experience bringing her into our family because it made Eric and I so incredibly happy.” There. That is probably what she should have said and what we want her to mean but …. yeah. She gave him a gift I guess.

    • Anonny says:

      I think that’s exactly why she said it: since Day One he’s been accused of freeloading on her, which is criticism she’s certainly aware of. While it wouldn’t be my choice of words, I can also see it as her acknowledgement that she’s happy to give to him.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        LOL That could be it, I didn’t even think about it like this. Guess I didn’t think she’s that self-aware.

        If she really thinks like this, fine. Whatever. It’s her life, her money, her freeloader, and her baby so if she wants to give him everything he wants, that’s her choice. I’m not sure she really is that self-aware but who the heck knows. I do have a problem with the message she’s sending but it’s not like she was a feminist icon until the moment she said this.

  15. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Wow that second to last pic of the 3 of them is really great. Pretty family.

  16. Shitler says:

    In that picture with Eric & the baby, she looks like a 1970′s housewife

  17. VanillaFrosting says:

    I have no problem with the wording of her statement. I think I understand the sentiment behind it.
    My husband is 14 years older and never got the chance to have a child though he always wanted one. I’m pregnant now and feel so happy to be able to give a baby to him. I know it’s mine too and I feel very fortunate, but I am so glad to give him the opportunity to be a father.

  18. Erinn says:

    Put the eyeliner down Jessica! I find it makes her look way too harsh, and old.

    Her face looks thinner in that pic of her and Maxwell. Hopefully she’s not just dumping this diet now that the commercial is out.

  19. holly hobby says:

    Ugh why do you stick those painful little bows on fine baby hair? Yes I understand you want people to say it’s a girl but wouldn’t a dress or something pink suffice?

    Eric is starting to look like Britney’s fiance. Get a shave a clean up you bum.

  20. Esmom says:

    Cute and adorable? Yes and yes. And she dresses her adorably, too. I miss snuggling with my babies…they’re just not as cuddly when they’re tweens!

  21. lizzi says:

    awww Maxi is adorable! she has that cute little strawberry birthmark between her eyebrows like lots of babies get. I had it too. What a cutie pie.

  22. Fiesty says:

    OMG, is that what eating mac and cheese, fried chicken and other gross fattening food produced. You are what you eat and I feel really sorry for that kid.

  23. cw says:

    all babies are lovey-dovey’s and adorable.

    but that is a very pretty little girl for sure

  24. hatsumomo says:

    I kinda get what Jessica is trying to convey here. Its easy to forget its takes two and when your a woman carrying a baby, you get lost in the “my baby” mentality. When Im talking to people about baby plans I keep saying “my baby” until my man nudges me and says “You mean OUR baby”.

  25. GrandPoobah says:


    Sorry, had a moment there. Their baby is gorgeous and so happy. The wording was definitely weird but I understand what she means.

  26. LAR says:

    I love the look on the baby’s face in the last pic. “Mama.”

  27. mita says:

    Is it me or does her hubby look like K Fed?………

  28. Alana Fajina says:

    These pics are adorable, that baby is Too cute!!! Jessica is beaming and I am glad she is happy!

  29. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Beautiful baby :D

    Just realised that Jess’ other half looks just like Britney’s fiance, Jason whatshisname ;) Spooky!

  30. Joy says:

    Where’s Ashlee? Is it just me or are they estranged?

  31. maria says:

    If I am not mistaken, her first husband was also humble and adored her. But oh yeah, she got too big for her britches and was too good for him and cheated on him. Can’t wait for Karma to get her.

  32. Kiki says:

    Even though it’s kind of a tacky, self-important thing to say, I totally absolutely 100% get what she’s saying. I just had a baby (cool to me, boring to everyone else). No denying that I just spent the past grueling year building this dynamic for him.

    And celebrities showing off their babies is no different than the rest of us doing it. Once you have one, you become that person you used to find so effing annoying you could roundhouse their teeth in for posting that their baby said its first boring ass words.
