Overjoyed Jessica Simpson has described becoming a mum as the "greatest experience" of her life.
The 31-year-old star left the message on her website after she and partner Eric Johnson welcomed their daughter Maxwell Drew into the world on Tuesday.
"We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received," the first-time mum wrote.
"This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!"
Jessica's little princess tipped the scales at a healthy 9lbs 13oz, and delighted relatives – including her sister Ashlee – have flocked to see her at LA's Cedars-Sinai hospital.
"She has wanted to be a mom since we were little girls and I couldn't be more excited for her and Eric!" the new auntie told People magazine after the birth.
Now that Maxwell is finally here, she won't be short of playdates with her fellow celebrity babies.
When HELLO! featured the singer's lavish baby shower, which took its theme from the children's book Charlotte's Web, actress Jessica Alba came along with her little daughter Haven.
Guests played games such as guessing the size of Jessica’s belly, and presented her with baby clothes by Fendi, Gucci and Jean Paul Gaultier.
