Everybody Loves Jessica Simpson’s Baby

But especially Ashlee Simpson and her son, Bronx.

From People:

Just hours after Jessica Simpson gave birth to daughter Maxwell Drew, her sister Ashlee Simpson says she’s smitten with the newest family member.

“Bronx and I are in love with Maxwell already!” Ashlee, who is mom to 3-year-old son Bronx, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Jessica has wanted to be a mom since we were little girls and I couldn’t be more excited for her and Eric!”

Ashlee has already begun spoiling her niece: In March, she gifted her with a tiny Fendi dress and matching garment bag while celebrating the impending birth at Jessica’s Charlotte’s Web-themed baby shower.

“Ever since Ashlee had Bronx, we’ve become closer and closer,” Jessica told PEOPLE at the time. “I’m glad that our babies are just going to be three years apart.”

So is Bronx, who can’t wait to have a little playmate.

“He records songs on my sister’s iPhone about the things he wants to do with the baby, like swim in the ocean and go to the playground,” Jessica said. “The first one just made me cry. We’re making a CD of them – it was the best gift of all.”

How excited are you over Jessica Simpson’s baby? Is it weird to be so excited? Is it weird to have spent last night outside, waiting for a shooting star so that you could make a wish that Jess would post a picture of that big ol’ baby* on Twitter in a few weeks? That’s totally normal, right?

*Little Maxwell Drew Simpson was born at nine pounds and 13 ounces, and she’s just under 22 inches long. I did a tiny bit of research, since I know some of you were wondering, and according to good ol’ Wikipedia, it looks like the average weight of a full-term baby is seven and a half pounds with mostly all of then falling in the six to ten pound range, and the average length is anywhere from 14 to 20 inches. So the baby’s just a tiny bit heavier and a little bit taller than average, in case you wanted to know. She’s also probably one of the most precious things the world’s ever seen.
