Jessica Simpson gave birth to her baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson, just yesterday morning. So how are mother and daughter faring in the hours after little Maxi’s birth?

Considering she just gave birth to a 9-pound, 13-ounce baby, Jess seems to be doing remarkably well. A source tells Us Magazine that baby Maxi’s birth went “smoothly” and that Jessica is “already up and walking around.” Still, the 31-year-old plans to stay in the hospital for a few more days. Can’t go rushing back home quite yet!

Though Jess may be a first-time mother, she seems quite taken with her baby girl. The source adds, "Everyone is marveling at what a natural Jessica is. She was born to be a mom!"

As for the nearly 10-pound bundle of joy? Maxwell is said to be "eating like a champ.” Hey, as long as Jess keeps her away from the butter-covered PopTarts, we’re sure it will be fine.
