Jessica Simpson Finally Gives Birth, Names Daughter Maxwell Drew: Love It or Hate It?

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?

    She could call it Mad Max Beyond Swamp Ass...lol. I don't care if she called it late to dinner.

    Their choice, but wouldn't be mine lol. My cousin named their kid Jeremiah (a girl), but they at least call her Miah. I don't honestly get giving a girl a masculine name or giving a boy a feminine name. Again it's totally their choice but it's also that kids choice to change her name in the future lol.

    dont love or hate it, giving a girl a boys name isnt half as bad as some of the names the hollywierd kooks have come up with

    I dont care, its not my child, but its not a good name for a girl, IMO.

    Maxwell and Drew? WTF they've never been names you could use for either a boy or a girl! If you want her nickname to be Max what about naming her Maxine? Well at least she's still not pregnant... Sigh GIF

    Poor little kid is going to grow up being teased.... Yet again stupid parents naming their kid something stupid.... yet everyone else in the world has to be forgiving..

    It's her and her husband choice. I wouldn't name my daughter a boy name, buy I've seen worse from holly weird.

    If you set the bar, someone will limbo under it. Watch, someone will be named his or her child "Onomatopoeia" or something.

    It sounds like a boy's name. =/ The child will probably be teased.

    Probably not as much as if it had been the other way around -- giving a female sounding name to a boy...

    I'm neutral on it. It certainly could be worse. The girl will probably get called Max, which could easily be short for Maxine. Other unfortunate associations could be made by nasty children-maxi pad, Maxwell House coffee.

    Did someone make her watch "Hiding Out" prior to her going into labor? The lead characters alias was "Maxwell Houser".

    It's far from the worst name from a celeb. But, I am SO glad she finally gave birth! My back hurt every time I saw a picture of her.
