The baby would be the second for Simpson, 32, and her fiance, pro football player Eric Johnson, 33.
Simpson recently shed more than 60 pounds she gained while pregnant with her daughter through a Weight Watchers-controlled diet and four-times-a-week workout sessions with her trainer.
“In over 20 years, I’ve never seen as consistent of a weight loss,” her trainer Harley Pasternak told Us last month. “Jessica’s right where she needs to be.”
Simpson’s Weight Watchers leader Liz Josefsberg told the magazine, “She’s very brave to do this in a healthy, more realistic way.”
Some folks are wondering how the new pregnancy will affect her Weight Watchers deal.
Well according to US Weekly, weight-loss contracts usually have a pregnancy clause in them. It all depends on how the contract was structured, noting that famous spokespeople don’t get their money paid in one lump sum as there are several triggers throughout the deal that are tied to the number of pounds they lose and services they do.
For instance, they get paid to, say, shoot a commercial, then paid again once the spot rolls out, as well as when they reach a certain weight.
Simpson signed a multimillion-dollar deal with the diet company and shot her first commercial just two weeks ago. In the months since Maxwell’s May 1 birth, she has reportedly dropped more than 60 pounds.
