Jessica Simpson Reveals Post-Baby Slim-Down In Weight Watchers Ad
Jessica Simpson, who has notoriously struggled with pregnancy weight gain, is flaunting her slimmer figure in a new ad for Weight Watchers.
Jessica Simpson's Weight Loss
"This body made two amazing little human beings,” says Simpson, mother to daughter Maxwell, 21 months, and son Ace Knute, 7 months. “I love this body and what it's capable of — no matter what size. But this version is really good,” the 33-year-old designer continues in the spot. “My body, like my life, is a work in progress, but I'm getting there, with Weight Watchers."
After Simpson gave birth to Maxwell with her longtime fiancé Eric Johnson in September, she dropped 50 pounds before getting pregnant with their second child. While the former pop star tried to limit her weight gain, adding on some extra pounds was inevitable. For Simpson, the numbers climbing on the scale were intimidating – but she knew if she put her mind to it she could get back down to a healthier size.
Simpson On Pregnancy Weight Gain
“I was so insecure – I couldn’t even believe what I weighed,” Simpson said on Good Morning America. “I don’t think that I ever expected myself to see the numbers that I have seen on the scale.”
“You are creating a life, and honestly it’s not easy,” she added. “It is a really hard thing to go through. And you deserve to eat your ice cream, you deserve to have your pancakes. Do whatever you want to do and then afterwards just know that you have to work really hard I had to learn that with my first and second pregnancy. “
Simpson’s fluctuating weight was often the subject of tabloid fodder throughout her pregnancies. The happy mother-of-two believes that the topic should be off limits – whether it’s her or any other expecting mother. "I never listen to it, no matter who the press talks about when they're pregnant," Simpson told Redbook "It's ridiculous and unfair. I think any woman who is pregnant and creating a life is pretty much entitled to eat whatever she wants as long as she's healthy. I wasn't going to let the media take away from what was one of the happiest times in my life."
