Ashlee Simpson: 'Bronx and I are in love with Maxwell already!'

By Gina DiFalco,

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson’s newborn baby Maxwell Drew is just three years apart from her cousin, Bronx Mowgli Wentz.

Bronx’s mom Ashlee Simpson (father is rocker Pete Wentz) expressed her excitement about the birth of her sister’s new baby on Tuesday.

"Bronx and I are in love with Maxwell already!" she told People. "Jessica has wanted to be a mom since we were little girls and I couldn't be more excited for her and Eric!"

At the time of the Fashion Star judge’s Charlotte’s Webb-themed baby shower in March, the older Simpson sister told People “Ever since Ashlee had Bronx, we've become closer and closer.” She added, "I'm glad that our babies are just going to be three years apart."

She went on to say that "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,” adding, "The first one just made me cry. We're making a CD of them – it was the best gift of all."

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that the new mother spent more than Beyonce did on a birthing suite at Cedars-Sinai hospital.

The suite boasts four bedrooms and costs $3,784 a day. The unit comes with a dinner for two after the baby arrives, chilled juices, flat screen TVs and even manicures and pedicures for mothers post-labor.
