Jessica Simpson was a special guest on Monday’s premiere episode of Katie Couric’s new show Katie. Of course, she was there to promote her gig as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers. It marked the first time that viewers and fans alike were able to get a good look at her post-baby body.
She gave birth to her daughter Maxwell Drew four months ago and has called motherhood a dream. She told Katie, “Motherhood is a dream. It really is absolutely amazing. She had her first flight yesterday. Did not sleep! She didn’t cry. She just wanted to babble.”
She also had nothing but kind words for her fiancee Eric Johnson. With regard to his parenting abilities, she said, “People call him the best dad in the world. Even my dad calls him that! He can do everything. He can change every diaper…he’s just a very peaceful person.”
She also said that she has roughly ten pounds to go in reaching her weight loss goal. She said that she doesn’t have any problems incorporating the exercise into her daily routine because she takes her daughter with her wherever she goes. She added, “I basically take her with me, whether it’s strapping her on me or strolling around the neighborhood.”
