Because honestly, what was that thing? It looked like a vagina trying to lay low underneath the strap of her nightgown.
This is Jessica Simpon’s first documented public appearance since the birth of her daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson, last month, and I’m sad to say that she’s all in hiding. Our photo agency captioned the pictures “Jessica Simpson on her way to the gym,” and I guess that’s way better than captioning it “Jessica Simpson on her way to a maternity-clothes-designing board meeting,” because we all know how that business is going to turn out.
Anyway. From Us Weekly:
Over a month after giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew, Jessica Simpson was photographed out and about for the first time in Hollywood. Sitting in the passenger seat of a car alongside her personal assitant, the 31-year-old fashion designer’s mission wasn’t a Frappucino run or a shopping spree. Smiling in a black top and oversized shades, the star was en route to the private gym of celeb trainer Harley Pasternak, who has worked with the likes of Halle Berry, Hilary Duff and many others.
Pasternak is the perfect coach to help Simpson with her admittedly daunting task. The 5-foot-3 star admitted to weighing 170 pounds when she posed nude and pregnant for the April issue of ELLE magazine — and now, she’s looking to fulfill a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers to shed that weight within a year.
“As soon as Jessica heals from the C-section, she is extremely determined to get back in the gym and work out,” a confidante told Us Weekly shortly after Maxwell’s birth. (Maxwell, Simpson’s first child with fiance Eric Johnson, weighed 9 lbs 13 oz at birth.)
“She hasn’t even thought about working out for a year!” the source continued last month. But if she wants this, she’ll need to work out a good five days a week.”
And in her third trimester, Simpson was already beginning to worry about the impending challenge. “She was clearly nervous about how she’d bounce back to normal,” another friend told Us.
So she’s taking it easy. That’s good. It’s definitely nice to know that not every celebrity out there is weight-loss-obsessed during their entire pregnancy, and you know what? She’s beautiful no matter what she looks like below the neck.
