Weeks after giving birth to her first child, proud parents Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson shared a first glimpse at baby Maxwell with PEOPLE.
Maxwell Drew was born May 1. Simpson told PEOPLE exclusively, “From how I sleep to what I think about, Maxwell has definitely taken over everything!”
“She’s on cloud nine. She’s really at peace. She’s loving motherhood. There have been really no major bumps in the road. This is everything she dreamed it would be,” PEOPLE’s assistant managing editor, Kate Coyne, said during a Wednesday visit to TODAY.
Simpson shared with PEOPLE that not everything is bliss – she delivered Maxwell via c-section. She said recovering from surgery isn’t easy and nursing has become a full-time job.
Simpson reportedly earned $850,000 in an exclusive photo deal with PEOPLE, Today Entertainment reports.
According to Coyne, Simpson is so happy that despite having a deal with Weight Watchers in the works, she isn’t even worried about her post-baby body.
“She doesn’t care what her hair looks like, what her gut looks like,” Coyne said. “She is really content just to be with her little girl.”
Coyne said Simpson has a few weeks before she has to embark on the Weight Watchers agreement and said, “But she has every confidence in the world that she’ll get back to that when it’s time. Right now, that’s not her focus … She’s in such a blissful place right now that I’m sure if the question was put to her ‘Exactly how many pounds do you have to lose?’ she’d have no idea. She’s too happy to even think about a scale.”
Right now, she said, Maxwell is the focus. Simpson told PEOPLE, “We stare at her all the time. We can’t get enough!” The new issue of PEOPLE hits the newsstands Friday.
