After what felt like the longest pregnancy in history, Jessica Simpson finally gave birth to a baby girl on Tuesday morning. The name? Maxwell Drew Johnson. But how much does the newborn weigh? Find out at :50 in the video below. Trust us, it's a doozy.

That's one big baby! According to Us Weekly, Maxwell's middle name honors Jessica's maternal grandmother, Tina Simpson, whose maiden name is Drew. And as for the unisex first name itself, well, that's Jessica's fiance's middle name.

Simpson, 31, was VERY open (sometimes too open) throughout her pregnancy. ("I just started calling myself Swamp Ass," she told Jay Leno of sweating through her maternity Spanx.) But she decided to hold off on tying the knot until the baby was born.

"Eric and I love each other so much, and knowing that I love this baby inside of me is so amazing -- I love it so much and I haven't even met them yet," she told Us Weekly. "I can't imagine how much love we'll have for it once it finally comes!" So ... what do you think of the name?

    Hate's a strong word. I like Max for a boy, but not so much for a girl.

    Who names their daughter Maxwell?
  • baii 2012/05/04 00:01:42

    Maxwell could have been more feminized like Maxanne or Maxlynne but i don't know, seems to masculine for a baby girl
  • Melinda93 2012/05/03 23:22:15

    i underestand the middle name, but the first name is just way to much like a boy...

    While I like names that have meaning, I would have tried to come up with a more feminine name for a girl! Enough of this unisex crap. God made 2 sexes for a reason. We are not supposed to be unisex.

    Is she kidding? Sounds too much like a boy's name.

    She's just doomed that kid to get called "Maxi Pad" when the kids at school tease her.

    *shrugs* Guess maybe she couldn't figure out how to spell "Lynyrd Skynyrd" for the birth certificate, so she picked Maxwell Drew instead.
  • ADRIA Aquariu... 2012/05/03 14:14:36
    Yep I call my cat maxi pad and my son calss his "male" friend maxi pad.

    I love old family names for children, it's a wonderful way to honor and remember those who have a baby named for them. Maybe the bioch who did the story on the name of the baby is perpetually on the rag, and that's what made her make such an outrageous comparison.

    I wish when people named their kids they'd remember the kid has to wear it to school and social functions.
  • Kidasha P. Sturm 2012/05/03 11:50:12
    yeah but it goes both ways. My sister's name is Maria which is the most common girl's name in Portugal (where we're from) and she hated having such a common name. When we came to America the name wasn't as popular so she got some relief. As for me? I have a pretty common portuguese name, Jacinta. But all my friends in America call me Jacy which is not a popular name at all. So sometimes having a weird name is better
  • ADRIA Kidasha 2012/05/03 14:16:09
    I named my daughter Lamia. Weird is good but I would still prefer a girls name. lol

    So she'll grow up called Maxie or Max. Not bad as celebrity baby names go. I don't understand the hate.

    what is wrong with these celebs and the ridiculous/ugly names they pick for their children?

    they still take the cake with their son "pilot inspektor"
