Jessica Simpson to Name Baby Daughter ...

by at . Comments

Choosing a baby name can be tricky. Especially if you're a celebrity.

The very pregnant Jessica Simpson and her fiancé Eric Johnson were, until recently, at an impasse about what to call their soon-to-be born daughter.

“They tossed around a lot of names, including some wacky ones like Zinfandel, but just couldn’t agree on anything,” a family friend confides.

What did they come up with?

“They’re going to call her Maxwell, Maxi for short,” the friend says. Maxwell is Eric’s middle name, and also his beloved grandma’s maiden name.

“Jessica wanted a name with meaning.”

Aww. Unusual as that is, it's quite sweet. If this is even true. Jess has been wearing a necklace with a diamond “M” pendant, so that could explain it.

The often nude, pregnant Jessica is now set to give birth on April 20, three weeks earlier than her original due date. “She’s gained so much weight and the baby is so huge that doctors had to push up the date,” reveals her friend to In Touch.

She doesn't let that thing get in the way of non-stop boning at least.


I didn't know she was pregnant and i was thinking she could of been a judge for X Factor


I love that name I love that she actually wanted meaning behind it and that is perfect


hahahha jessica is such a bitch... the kids are gonna make fun of this girls name so bad. maxipad.... hahaha. terrible.


I think its kool why can't a girl have a boys name. I have a boys name and I'm 18 and I didn't get picked on and I am very much a girl. Just bc kids that r in school now r mean what makes u think that it won't change n b differnt for her I mean ppl change as they get older n. B come parents.


How do you know the baby will be picked on and if she is how do you know it will affect her. You all assume so much and worry about the wrong thing. Kathy did people tease you and call you "cat the" girl with the stinky one? Let people live and do what they want. Maxwell is a boy name is its a boys name. Now it's a girl's name because a girl will have that name. Further the child could be home schooled.


shouldn't it be maxine since its a girl maxwell is a boys name that kid life is over its like naming your son ashley or shannon or lindsay they are meant for girls just like this is meant for a boy hopefully she changes her mind


why name a girl a boy's name stupid people..


that poor child! i sure hope they change their mind,name her> Carson,Cameron,Devin,Kennedy,anything but Maxwell.i know i wouldnt want my kid to be made fun of.but its her life,she'll have to deal with that childs tears.


Omg Why are they naming this poor bababy Maxwell. If the baby was a boy id understand and you can call him Max, But naming a girl mawell is going to get her made so mjuch fun of and calling her maxi wil be even worse because when in high school i agree she would be called maxi pad or theyd come up with a word that rhymes with max or maxi and use it. Couldnt they name her Maxine or something like that for a girl please. I'm so sorry little baby about your name. She is going to hate those parents of hers for that name so much but if they give her a cool middle name she could use that instead of the first name.


@jennifer: you think Jessica is conceited? How so? She's always been pretty real about herself, including her body image issues. Just because she wears heels and nice dresses while pregnant doesn't indicate conceitedness. Jessica can be a flake at times but hey, it is what it is. She actually seems like a nice person.

Jessica Simpson Quotes

They're just the cutest couple in the world. They are adorable. Anybody would wish to be them and you can only wish them well. Just being around them inspires love and everything I sing about.

Jessica Simpson [on her sister and Pete Wentz]

It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?
