It turns out that the rumors of Jessica Simpson's big payday for the first photos of daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson are true: The singer and actress is featured on the cover on the new issue of People with her baby bundle of joy. The verdict? Maxwell Drew is totally adorable — and undeniably girly, thanks to her famous mom.
"Life has completely changed," the 31-year-old told People of motherhood. "From how I sleep to what I think about, Maxwell has definitely taken over everything!"
She apparently has her mother's eyes and dad's calm demeanor, according to People. "We stare at her all the time," Simpson said. "We can't get enough!"
Simpson also revealed that she had a C-section to deliver her first child, so recovering from that has been painful. However, the most difficult part so far has been nursing — she calls it a "a full-on job."
It might be challenging, but the Fashion Star mentor added that she doesn't like it when her fiance has to feed Maxwell.
"It's the worst if I have to pump and give Eric a bottle to give her," she lamented. "I miss holding her and having that closeness."
She might think nursing is hard, but it's about to get doubly hard now that she's officially signed on to lose the baby weight with Weight Watchers — for a $4 million payday.
"So excited to be part of the Weight Watchers family," she tweeted Wednesday.
The deal — rumored for months — will require Simpson to drop a bunch of weight relatively quickly. Remember how Jennifer Hudson suddenly appeared with a slim physique and Weight Watchers deal? Yeah, like that.
"As soon as Jessica heals from the C-section, she is extremely determined to get back in the gym and work out," a source told US Weekly. "She wants to show the world and is excited to do it."
Simpson "hasn't chosen a trainer yet," a pal said. "In fact, she hasn't even thought about working out for a year. But if she wants this, she'll need to work out a good five days a week."
She's reportedly deciding between two trainers: Danny Musico, Johnson's trainer, and Mike Alexander, the buff dude who helped whip her into size-two shape for 2005's Dukes of Hazzard.
Yowsa. Still, $4 million dollars would help ease the pain of constant workouts. We're down — call us, Weight Watchers.
