We’ve already reported that Jessica Simpson gave birth to her daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson, yesterday. Mother and her 9 pounds and 13 ounce baby are doing fine. But more news is trickling in on the birth and how Jessica and fiance, Eric Johnson, came up with that unusual name.
Both the Johnson and Simpson family names are linked to the couple’s new daughter. Maxwell is Eric’s middle name and his grandmother’s surname. And Maxwell takes her middle name from maternal grandmother, Tina Simpson, whose maiden name is Drew.
With a name like that, she had to be born in to style. It’s being reported that Jessica delivered her baby in a three-bedroom deluxe maternity suite at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles which costs $3,784 a day. Luxuries of this suite include:
- A “mother’s assistant” who can “attend to the needs of you and your baby during your hospital stay”
- Flat screen television, stereo, DVD player
- Full-size bathtubs
- Complimentary chilled juices, basket of fresh fruit and muffins, in-room refrigerator
- Salon services: manicure, pedicure, blow-out, hair cut (for an additional fee)
That’s a lot of money! But when you’re bringing something that special into the world, it must be worth it. What do you think? Too much money to spend on giving birth or do you think new moms deserve it?
