Jessica Simpson piled on 70lbs while she was pregnant with daughter Maxwell Drew but now she is determined to keep her baby weight under control as she hit the gym in Los Angeles, California, on Friday.
Jessica Simpson, 32, who has 11-month-old daughter Maxwell Drew with NFL player fiancé Eric Johnson, gained 70lbs during her first pregnancy, and admitted that this time around she is trying to keep her cravings under control as she knows how difficult it was to shift her baby weight.
Speaking to chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, Jessica Simpson recently said: “The first pregnancy I like let loose and I kind of ate everything that I wanted to eat and I just really enjoyed it.
“This time around I think because I was doing Weight Watchers and I felt super healthy. I’m not really craving as much and I know how hard it is to get off so I’m trying to make healthier, wiser decisions.”
However, Eric Johnson was positively enamored by her blossoming figure.
Jessica Simpson said: “Apparently Eric still wanted me. So I can gain as much weight and I will have a husband to be that loves me.”
She explained her whole pregnancy has been different the second time around, with her finding the experience “exhausting”.
Jessica Simpson said: “It’s the complete opposite. Like with Maxwell, I felt amazing. Like I could do everything, eat everything. Do whatever I wanted.
“I had a lot of energy. This time around, I’m like exhausted. Eating Tums. That’s my snack of choice.”
