Appearing on Katie Couric's new chat show, singer and reality star Jessica Simpson revealed that she has lost forty pounds since giving birth to daughter Maxwell.
Looking glamorous in a sophisticated long-sleeved peplum dress, the star admitted the weight was far easier to gain than to lose.
She said: "During my pregnancy, I didn't really think about it. I thought my doctors were telling me that it was just a lot of water and whenever my water broke my whole entire stomach would go down but that did not happen."
"All the weight did not go down with the baby."
Now just ten pounds away from her target weight, Jessica reveals she used her daughter to help her slim down after pregnancy.
She said: "I basically take her with me, whether it's strapping her on me or strolling around the neighbourhood."
Daughter Maxwell was welcomed into the world in May to Jessica and her fiancé Eric Johnson.
