Jessica Simpson inked a multimillion dollar post-pregnancy weight loss deal with Weight Watchers. Today she finally debuted her post-baby body on “Katie."
“I really didn’t want it to be about my weight because I know that everybody has their weight and has their own issues,” said Simpson.
This was in response to her lack of a full body shot in her new “Weight Watchers” commercial.
“I wanted to talk directly to people so I didn’t want the big body reveal moment. It’s not really who I am and Weight Watchers was on board with that thankfully.”
Jessica gave birth to daughter Maxwell Drew on May 1 and announced several days later that she had signed a weight loss deal with Weight Watchers.
The exact weight lost (and gained) is a mystery still.
“And you’ve lost like about 40 pounds right?” asked Couric.
“More!” said Simpson.
“Can you tell me?” pressed Couric.
“No!” said Simpson. “But it’s really not about the numbers … I’ve lost enough weight to where I can pat myself on the back… it’s a small child!”
“I’ve put on more baby weight than I was planning on putting any so I think that I really have to separate myself from the world’s expectations and really just look inside of myself and have a relationship with myself and be healthy with myself,” Simpson said.
A sneak peek of Simpson’s new Weight Watchers commercial has the singer say: “I’m not a super model, I’m just Jessica. Trying to eat real food in the real world.”
“... I thought my doctors were telling me that it was just a lot of water and whenever my water broke… my whole entire stomach would go down, but that did not happen! “So yeah all the weight did not come out with the baby and I’ve had to really stay focused and focus on my diet and just really concentrate on what I’m putting in my body because obviously I want to be as healthy as I can because I’m a Mom now.”
Simpson aboids the media too. "I definitely don’t Google my name ... I try to avoid it completely, but I still subconsciously know that the talk is going on so I think that every day that is a struggle for me.”
