Jessica Simpson has finally given birth to a baby girl named Maxwell, weighing 9 pounds, 13 ounces.

Whew, I’m glad that’s over – her pregnancy was really tough on me.

Two months ago she was already being called “heavily pregnant” so I can not imagine being as uncomfortable as she looked and still having 2 months to go.

Is it me or did she seem to be pregnant a really long time? Based on when she announced her pregnancy and her accompanying picture, I would have guessed she was already 4 or 5 months along. Then of course there was the whole posing thing and her tendency to over share…

Now I just wonder how much over sharing she’ll be doing about waiting the 6 weeks before she can have relations…or her daughter’s umbilical cord…or diaper details.

Sigh.
