The world got their first look at Jessica Simpson's post-baby body when she appeared on Katie Couric's new talk show "Katie" on Sept. 10.
The 31-year-old singer and first-time mom revealed that she's lost more than 40 pounds and debuted her first Weight Watchers commercial, in which she intentionally didn't reveal her body.
Almost as soon as Simpson confirmed her pregnancy came reports that she was approached by Weight Watchers to be their new celebrity spokesperson once she gave birth. The singer reportedly signed a $3 to 4 million contract with the weight loss company, and shot the commercial in July, just two months after giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew.
In Simpson's first television ad for the diet program, she looks directly into the camera and says:
"I'm Jessica Simpson and yes, I'm doing Weight Watchers. There is a lot of pressure to lose weight but I'm not a supermodel. I'm just Jessica trying to eat real food in the real world and I really just wanna be healthy for my daughter. So I knew Weight Watchers was the only way to go. It's working. I'm on my way and it feels amazing. Really I just wanna be a better version of myself."
If Simpson's spiel sounds familiar, it's because she recently told USA Today she feels like everyone can do what she's doing, because she's not a supermodel. "My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I'm just your everyday woman who is trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiancé and herself," she told the newspaper last week.
Simpson and Weight Watchers are desperately trying to convince the public that the singer is just like any other woman with goals to lose weight, however that multimillion dollar contract says otherwise. Simpson received a large amount of criticism for the estimated 50 to 60 pounds she gained during pregnancy, so it's no wonder she's more than eager to promote her impressive weight loss and get critics off her back.
