A rep for the singer confirmed to Life & Style that earlier this morning, May 1, the 31-year-old gave birth to baby girl Maxwell Drew in LA.
"We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received," Jessica wrote on her website. "This has been the greatest experience of our lives!"
Weighing in at 9 pounds, 13 ounces, Maxwell is the first child for Jessica and Eric, who got engaged in November 2010 after six months of dating.
"He got down on his knee, and I had to sit down on it because I was so shocked. I was... short of breath," she said about their engagement. "It was definitely one of those moments where I've never felt that way before, ever."
Jessica first shared news of her pregnancy after much speculation on Halloween, tweeting a photo of her wrapped in a mummy costume, writing, "It's true! I am going to be a mummy."
"I did the pregnancy test. I was feeling a little off," she recalled about finding out she was pregnant. "[I first told] Eric, of course. He was in the house. He didn't know that I was taking a pregnancy test, so I kind of shocked him. I came in shaking, like, 'Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! This is happening!' We both cried. We were in shock and kind of just sat there and stared at each other."
For now, Jess and Eric have yet to set a wedding date.
"We were going to throw something together, but I'd rather put more time in it and be able to really enjoy the day," she's said. "When you're pregnant, your hormones go crazy. I don't want to be super stressed out and end up being a bridezilla! So I'll wait until after."
Well, now their new addition can join them in the fabulous festivities!
We're so happy for you Jess and Eric -- congratulations!
