Jessica Simpson has given birth to baby girl named Maxwell Drew, she announced on her website.

"Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl Maxwell Drew Johnson," the post read. "We are so grateful for all the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!"

Simpson, 31, has been engaged to Eric Johnson, 32, since 2010. Simpson revealed her pregnancy back in October 2011 by posting a costumed photo of herself dressed as a mummy with the caption "It's true, I am going to be a mummy!" 

Since then, Simpson's large pregnancy belly has gained media attention, with many speculating the "Fashion Star" host was ready to give birth weeks before her due date.

"If we have a 10 pounder, pray for me!" Simpson told People in March.  

According to her website, her daughter weighs 9 pounds and 13 ounces.

Simpson spread the word on her Twitter account posting "BABY NEWS!!!" with a link to her announcement.

The singer and fashionista has kept fans up-to-date on her pregnancy throughout, posting on Twitter that she is "still pregnant" when reports surfaced last week she had already had her baby.
