The star announced the big news on her website shortly after the big event writing, ""Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby Maxwell Drew Johnson 9 lbs. 13 oz. 21 3/4". We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!"
The couple, who have been dating for two years, put their much anticipated wedding on hold last fall after announcing that they were expecting their first child. At the time, the duo indicated that they would hold off on getting married until after the baby's arrival. She told "Entertainment Tonight", "I'm going to wait until everything is over so I don't end up being a hormonal bridezilla."
With the news of little Maxwell's arrival, Jessica joins a growing group of reality stars making headlines with baby news. Here are some of the reality stars with babies on the brain:
Jack Osbourne: The youngest Osbourne kid is all grown up! The former star of "The Osbournes" and his fiance, Lis Stelly welcomed their first child last week. Daughter Pearl made her big arrival just last week to the delight of her famous grandparents, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. The proud grandma tweeted her response to the news writing, "Today I witnessed my first grandchild being born, life changing experience. She is an angel."
Nick Lachey: While his ex-wife is stealing the headlines with her big news, the former "Newlyweds" star is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his own bundle of joy wife wife Vanessa Minnillo. So far the "Sing Off" host is reportedly weathering the pregnancy whirlwind like a pro. Vanessa reveals, "I'll snap and then I'm like, 'Oh honey, it's the baby. I'm a little quicker to snap, but I'm also quicker to apologize. He has been a gem!"
Giuliana Rancic: For three seasons, reality fans have watched the "E! News" host and her "Apprentice" winner husband Bill go through the ups and downs of trying to expand their family on their hit show "Giuliana & Bill". From their initial decision to try to conceive naturally through her IVF treatments all the way to her recent breast cancer diagnosis, fans of the couple have been eagerly awaiting a baby announcement from the couple. The wait was finally over when they announced that they are expecting a baby via a gestational surrogate last week. The couple told "E! News" of the big news, "We are so thrilled that our prayers have been answered. We are absolutely ecstatic to be sharing this with everyone who has been following our journey."
Tamera Mowry: A generation of kids grew up watching her and her twin sister, Tia, grow up on "Sister, Sister". Now we get to watch the girls start their families on their Style Network reality show, "Tia & Tamera". Just ten months after Tia's pregnancy was chronicled on the debut season of the reality show, Tamera has made her own baby announcement just in time for the second season premiere on June 11th.
