Jessica Simpson is pregnant again, just seven months after giving birth to her first child, Maxwell Drew. Even though her publicist hasn’t confirmed the news, she’s also not denying it. She told People, “I’m not going to comment on this speculation.” Methinks she’s knocked up.
Anyway, while Jessica was pregnant with her first child, she signed a $4 million contract with Weight Watchers to lose her baby weight. Now that Jessica is pregnant again, and will most certainly gain weight again, is Weight Watchers upset with their covergirl?
It’s safe to say soon-to-be second time mama Jessica Simpson’s priorities have shifted a little bit as of late. Since welcoming baby Maxwell on May 1 (her first childwith fiance Eric Johnson), designer/actress/singer Simpson, 32, has been focusedon her bonding with her little one — and slimming down after her much-discussed 70-pound pregnancy weight gain with help from Weight Watchers (plus some extra motivation in the form of a rumored $4 million paycheck from the company.)
So what does her surprise second pregnancy — as reported exclusively in the new Us Weekly, out now — mean for her deal? The brand is refusing to, well, weigh in.
“Any questions related to Jessica’s personal life can only be answered by her team,” Stephanie Schulman, Weight Watchers’ public relations manager, told E! News Wednesday. “We do not disclose financial details about our relationships with any of our ambassadors.”
A rep for Simpson had no comment about the Fashion Star mentor’s latest baby joy. Meanwhile, a source close to the Texas native tells Us she “really is overjoyed!”
While Weight Watchers came out and released a comment saying they wouldn’t comment, am I the only one who thought their statement sounded a bit…. stiff? Maybe they are pissed?
No worries – who sues a pregnant woman, anyway.
