Jessica Simpson: Meet My Baby Girl!

This Week's WHO Magazine - ON SALE FRIDAY

Since Jessica Simpson and her fiancé Eric Johnson welcomed their daughter Maxwell Drew on May 1, "life has completely changed," Simpson, 31, tells WHO exclusively. "From how I sleep to what I think about, Maxwell has definitely taken over everything!"

In this week's issue, Simpson and Johnson give an exclusive interview and share the first photos of Maxwell, whose "emotional birth" only strengthened the close bond the couple share. “Seeing everything happen through Eric’s face was a moment I’ll never forget,” says Simpson, who gave birth to 4.45kg Maxwell via caesarean section. “He was holding her hand and mine, so immediately we wanted that family bond.”

"We stare at her all the time," says Simpson of her 3-week-old daughter, who she says inherited her mum's eyes and dad's calm demeanor. "We can't get enough!"

But becoming new parents hasn't been without its hardships. Recovering from surgery isn't easy, she says, and nursing, which she does throughout the day, has become "a full-on job."

And while Simpson says she's doesn't care about her appearance at the moment, she admits to eventually wanting to get back to her pre-baby weight. "After you have a baby it's like, 'Oh my God, what happened to my body?'" she says "This is not me! It would be nice to feel comfortable in a bikini but that's not my goal," she says. "I just want to fit into jeans."

Still, Simpson says she's happier than ever: “Eric said it best: when Maxwell was born, it felt like we were born again,” the star tells WHO. “Seeing Eric with Maxwell is everything I’ve ever dreamed of: a daughter and the man of my dreams. It’s the most beautiful picture, and I’m in the best place.”

For more exclusive details about Maxwell's first few weeks at home – including first photos of the new family and her lavish nursery, plus all the details of her birth, Simpson's plans for a wedding and more children, pick up this week's issue of WHO, on newsstands Friday.

    Daniel thinks there is no bigger accomplishment than getting pregnant. That's must be why it's so easy. Ever seen Teen Mom? You're right, they should be very proud of their accidental accomplishment. I think there's nothing more overrated than having children. It's like when women fall pregnant they forget they had a personality once upon a time and all they have to talk about is pregnancy and children. They're not the first, they certainly won't be the last, and no one actually cares about yet another newly born consumer/space-waster. The only reason I even read this article was because I wanted to see the other 5 kids she popped out. Apparently she was only pregnant with one - who'd have known?

    OMG listen to you all yet again bag someone that we deem 'not normal' I wear make up so does that make me not a normal mother???? Also she did give birth regardless of which way its still birth, i gave birth the way you people call natural but that doesn't make my experience less or more than my beautiful sister who has given BIRTH to 3 gorgeous children through a C-SECTION!!! Its people like you that make women feel less of a mother for not giving birth 'naturally' or for not breastfeeding. And seriously if you don't like reading these stypes of stories why the hell do you willingly click on the link and read them is it to make yourselves feel better by bagging other humans!!!!!!!!!!!
