The 31-year-old singer has some baby weight to lose. But with a new Weight Watchers contract, she insists she is not doing it for them.

Jessica SimpsonAs many new mothers know, having a new baby is stressful enough without having to worry about losing the weight you gained during pregnancy.

But for Jessica Simpson, that extra stress has a price tag with a going price of $3 to $4 million.

That is how much Weight Watchers is reportedly paying her as their new spokesperson.

A full month before the birth, Simpson had said she gained a 70 pounds during the pregnancy.

But Simpson insists there is no extra pressure from Weight Watchers.

“Just so everyone knows...Weight Watchers hasn't put ANY pressure on me!” Simpson tweeted this morning just after 3 a.m. “I'm trying to be as healthy as I can be for myself and I feel great!”

Simpson has been at the gym since giving birth and even tweeted a photo last week of her walking her daughter around the neighborhood.

Part of her deal with Weight Watchers is reportedly keeping her fans updated on her progress, according to Cinema Blend.

The 31-year-old singer seems to be happy to be a role model for other mothers, as well as anyone else just trying to stay healthy and lose weight.

Simpson is obviously losing weight, but not spending much more time at the gym than a normal mother would have time for. If she really wants to be a role model, it may be important she takes this approach.

With this diet, Simpson really is staying honest with her fans and losing weight the right way, while inspiring others to do the same.

"I think anybody who's gone through a pregnancy, after they have the baby, it's like, 'I need to do something about this,'" she said to People, according to the Huffington Post. "For me, I really want to do something that is a lifestyle, because in the past, I've been known to yo-yo diet."
