For the past couple of years or so, Jessica Simpson and Jessica Simpson's weight have been tabloid fodder. Apparently, that isn't going to change now that she's given birth to her first child, daughter Maxwell.
Even before she gave birth, there was a lot of speculation about how she was gaining too much weight because she was basically indulging her every whim.
Then, word got out that she'd been approached by Weight Watchers to sign a partnership that would see her drop the pounds on the program for an estimated $4 million (€3.1 million).
Jessica confirmed the deal on her Twitter and Facebook pages and, only a couple of weeks later, was seen hitting the gym regularly.
This, in return, led to talk that she might be under some sort of pressure from Weight Watchers, a report she's taking the time out to rubbish herself.
“Just so everyone knows...Weight Watchers hasn't put ANY pressure on me. I'm trying to be as healthy as I can be for myself and I feel great!” Jessica writes on her Twitter
As we also noted
on a previous occasion, word on the street was that the weight loss company had given Jessica only 5 months to drop an impressive 50 pounds (22.6 kg).
Admittedly, Jessica was already feeling as if she was about to crack, especially since she wasn't that keen on hitting the gym several times a week because that meant being apart from her baby girl.
Maxwell is Jessica's first child with fiancé Eric Johnson, whom she plans to wed as soon as she bounces back to shape, as she said in one of her older interviews.
The two first announced their engagement and, shortly afterwards, confirmed they were expecting, which inevitably led to talk about postponing the wedding until Jessica gave birth.
This was confirmed by the star weeks before Maxwell was born.
Speaking of Maxwell, Jessica also tweeted a first picture of her the other day, with the caption “Howdy friends.”
