Late last night, for the first time, Jessica Simpson opened up about her new bundle of joy, Maxwell Drew Johnson, declaring to her millions of Twitter followers that she is “so in love” with her baby daughter.

“I am so in love with baby Maxwell,” she tweeted. “I want to cry every time I look at her.”

What else did she have to say?

“Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced,” the new mom added.

After what felt like a marathon pregnancy, Jessica, 31, and fiance Eric Johnson finally welcomed daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson, on May 1, 2012. Maxwell weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs., 13 oz.

Throughout her pregnancy, Jessica remained very open and honest about the whole experience, oftentimes cracking jokes about the amount of weight she gained.

“I feel like I have a bowling ball sitting on my hoo-ha!” Simpson told Jimmy Kimmel in April. “Apparently I have a lot of amniotic fluid, so whenever my water breaks it will be like a fire hydrant!”

Of her Demi Moore-inspired photo shoot for Elle, she tweeted, “Last chance to see me ‘fat’ aka PREGNANT on the cover of Elle.”

Jessica and Eric got engaged in November 2010. The following year, they pushed back their wedding date, due to Jessica’s pregnancy.
