Jessica Simpson, Daughter: Star Tweets Photo Of Maxwell Drew (PHOTO)

While Jessica Simpson's pregnancy seemed to drag on forever, we can hardly believe that her baby girl, Maxwell Drew, is already 8 weeks old. But the "Fashion Star" judge tweeted a photo of Maxwell Tuesday that showed off just how quickly her daughter is growing, accompanied by the simple line, "Howdy friends."

Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson welcomed their first daughter on May 1. Meanwhile, Simpson has been hard at work trying to drop an estimated 40-50 pounds she gained during pregnancy, having inked a reported $4 million deal with Weight Watchers as the company's spokeswoman.
