Jessica Simpson has been a fan of Weight Watchers since she had her first child; the singer used the program to slim down and lose the baby weight, but controversy arose when she quickly became pregnant with her second child while still on the program. Rumors began to fly that the company would drop her as a spokesperson, but after she came through her second pregnancy–and a slew of online bullies who couldn’t let it go that she’d gained the weight back–Simpson got back on her regimen and has been working hard to get back in shape.
“Pregnancy is a lot. It was hard to do two so close together,” she said in an interview after giving birth to son Ace. “I have this huge sense of accomplishment, and I feel in my heart that I’m done. But obviously, accidents do happen!”
Simpson’s new ad for WW was released earlier this week and highlights her hard work with a tight white dress, and she says she has a very good reason to keep up with the program and stick to her plan: her upcoming wedding.
“I have a newfound determination that I’m really proud of. I can honestly say that I’ve never been happier,” she says in the ad. “The new year will definitely bring on the wedding bells which is exciting…I think it’s about time. Knowing that I have the wedding coming up is an incentive to stay on Weight Watchers, count my points and stay in the gym. I mean, when you see my dress, you’ll know.”
