The New York Post’s Page Six is reporting that singer Jessica Simpson has just inked a $3 million deal with Weight Watchers.

According to the Post, the 48-year-old weight loss company will pay Simpson – currently pregnant with her first child – the seven figure sum to become its new spokesperson.

“The deal is in place, and after having her baby, she’ll start with Weight Watchers to lose her baby weight,” a source told the New York Post.

Simpson’s weight has fluctuated over the years, a fact she has acknowledged and laughed off in interviews.

She has been in the public eye since she was 19 years old, and starred in the television show Newlyweds with then-husband Nick Lachey.

Early in her career, she was exercising constantly in order to fit into her Daisy Duke shorts for the movie The Dukes of Hazzard.

Then in 2009, while performing at a country music concert, Simpson was photographed in high-waisted “mom” jeans. The media’s response to the images was swift and cruel, with headlines calling her fat and bloated (at best).
Simpson did nothing.

“All kinds of women started coming up to me and saying what an example I was setting by not constantly dieting,” she told Lucky magazine. “Everybody fluctuates, but I’m open about my weight and I’m still confident…I didn’t cry about it too much.”

Simpson plans to marry her fiance, former NFL player Eric Johnson, shortly after she gives birth.
