Jessica Simpson Talks Baby Weight with Katie Couric
The 32-year-old singer appeared on the premiere of "Katie" on Monday (September 10) and told the host, "I've been pregnant for like three years now. I try to avoid [the speculation] completely. But I still subconsciously know that the talk is going on."
As for her pregnancy, she admits to Katie, "When I was pregnant I didn't do any exercise like, I didn't even walk around the block!"
Though she avoids Googling her name or reading tabloids, the pressure still gets to her. "Every day that is definitely a struggle for me… They try to put that pressure on you.”
After giving birth to daughter Maxwell in May, Jessica revealed that she's lost at least 40lbs. Now a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, the "Fashion Star" mentor said, "It’s really not about the numbers. I’ve lost enough weight where I can pat myself on the back,” she said, adding jokingly that the amount equaled “a small child!”
While continuing with Weight Watchers, Ms. Simpson discussed her further plans. "The biggest lesson is to be kind to myself, and to be gentle with myself, and to keep reminding myself that it is a process.”
In the Weight Watcher's commercial that she debuted on the show, the slimming star explains, "I'm not a supermodel. I'm just Jessica; trying to eat real food in the real world. I really just wanna be healthy for my daughter." Watch the ad below!
