Let's face it: Jessica Simpson has seen slimmer days.

But the singer does have a valid, adorable excuse. His name is Maxwell Drew Johnson.

And Kendra Wilkinson is simply aghast that folks are giving Simpson a hard time for not yet having lost all the weight she gained carrying her son to term.

"That just breaks my heart," Wilkinson tells Yahoo! OMG of the criticism leveled at Simpson's figure. "I feel for her. I was in the same boat. People just need to mind their own business. That's a woman who just gave birth.

""Her first priority right now is her child. Her first priority is not losing the weight. You should be proud of her for that. A lot of people just dump their kids off at nannies and lose the weight overnight. We should all be proud of her for being real and taking control and making priorities."

That may be the most intelligent thing Kendra has ever said.

Simpson, meanwhile, is profiting mightily off her body. She recently signed a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers.

Jessica Simpson has her work cut out for her if she's serious about dropping the pounds gained during her pregnancy with daughter Maxwell.

We're not being critical of Jess - it's not her fault the huge baby (9 lbs., 13 oz.) caused her to put on an estimated 75 pounds - it's just true.

On Tuesday, the 31-year-old was once again spotted hitting a gym in Los Angeles, giving us our first glimpse since she gave birth in May:

Heading into an SUV, Simpson (who's engaged to Maxwell's dad Eric Johnson) wore black leggings, tracksuit hoodie and cross-trainers.

The singer and fashion mogul was first spotted hitting the private gym of celeb trainer Harley Pastermak last week, with a lot at stake.

At the time of Elle's Jessica Simpson nude cover shoot, the 5-foot-3 star said she weighed 175 pounds. Her goal? Get close to 100.

Her motivation: A $4 million deal with Weight Watchers.

"She hasn't even thought about working out for a year!" a source told Us. "But if she wants this, she'll need to work out a good five days a week."

For four million bucks, she might even make it six.

Jessica Simpson is living the American dream: Getting paid to be fat.

Of course, as the newest spokesperson for Weight Watchers, she's expected to actually lose that fat. If she puts on more pounds and has to be removed from her home by a crane, she won't get paid. But still, she got fat and is getting paid.

Four million dollars, no less.

Jessica made the announcement of the worst-kept-secret deal on Twitter, writing, "So excited to be a part of the @WeightWatchers family!'

So how much does Jessica Simpson weigh? We don't know the exact number, but supposedly 65-75 pounds more than she did before pregnancy.

Wow. Weight Watchers must be waiting for a big reveal, because Jessica hasn't been photographed in public since she gave birth on May 1.

She did debut the first photos of Maxwell Drew yesterday, however.

WW said: "We’re thrilled that Jessica Simpson has joined Weight Watchers to adopt a healthier lifestyle and inspire others to do the same."

Best way to inspire others? Pay a few million dollars.

Now that Jessica Simpson has given birth to a 9-pound, 13-oz. baby daughter, Maxwell Drew, her other new baby has her undivided attention:

A new $4 million deal with Weight Watchers.

"As soon as Jessica heals from the C-section, she is extremely determined to work out," a confidant says. "She wants to show the world and is excited to do it."

And is contractually obligated to do it.

Since announcing that she and her fiance Eric Johnson were expecting their first child, Jessica has been under scrutiny over her pregnancy weight gain.

The 5-foot-3 star, who admitted weighing 175 pounds when she posed nude and pregnant for the April issue of Elle, needs to do a serious slim-down.

A source familiar with the Weight Watchers negotiations says the stakes are high, as she's got to lose at least 50 pounds. LITERALLY no pain, no gain.

"She'll have to meet the weight-loss goals for the deal to go through," says the source, adding that the new mom will be under a lot of pressure.

"She hasn't chosen a trainer yet. In fact, she hasn't even thought about it. But if she wants this, she'll need to work out a good five times a week."

For four million bucks? She can deal.

It's only been a week since Jessica Simpson gave birth to her beautiful baby girl, and the star is already thinking about slimming back down.

The mother of Maxi has about three million reasons to, of course.

According to ABC News, the 31-year-old singer signed a $3 million deal with Weight Watchers in which she'll showcase her fit post-baby body.

Jessica will star in a national campaign for the brand this year.

That's a lot of money to lose weight ... not that she needs it.

Jessica has numerous business endeavors, including perfume, lip gloss, beauty products, hair products and commercials and her Jessica Simpson Collection of handbags, shoes, accessories and and boots broke $1 billion in sales last year.

Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson, welcomed their 9-lb., 13-ounce daughter Maxwell Drew on May 1. Despite reports that she's already having a meltdown over going back to work, Jessica gushes that she's happy as ever.

Tori Spelling has come to the defense of super-pregnant Jessica Simpson amid criticism of her weight, specifically The View's Joy Behar calling her fat.

In an exclusive interview with Celebuzz, 38-year-old Tori, who's expecting her fourth child, just five months after giving birth, said the following:

“When women are pregnant, other people need to lay off. It’s a really special time and you should be able to deal with it in your own terms.”

On The View, Behar, 69, said: “Most women who are pregnant are not supposed to gain more than 25 pounds. She looks like she gained a lot more.”

Looking at Jessica Simpson nude on the cover of Elle, we would have to agree ... not that we're criticizing. Every pregnancy is different, Joy.

Tori encouraged Simpson, a judge on NBC’s Fashion Star, to maintain her fashionista style in the final few weeks of her first pregnancy.

“You just have to wear it proud and go with it,” the mom of three - Liam, 5, daughter Stella, 3-and-a-half and five-month-old Hattie - said.

“Every body is different. As far is weight, you never know what is going to happen. You can’t control what angle people are snapping you from.”

Words to live by for pregnant women stalked by paparazzi everywhere. Other words to live by? These awesome Jessica Simpson quotes.

The pregnant Jessica Simpson has just signed a deal worth $3 million to be a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers, according to a report from the New York Post.

Her weight has been scrutinized in recent years (see fat Jessica Simpson pictures), but now that she's eating for two, she's turning a negative into a positive.

She reportedly fielded several offers from a number of celebrities weight loss companies before settling with the Double-Dubs for a staggering sum of money.

A source told the Post, confirming earlier reports, "The deal is in place, and after having her baby, she'll start with Weight Watchers to lose her baby weight."

Rumors about the contract began last month, with reports saying that the company wanted to help her get back to her famous Dukes of Hazzard physique.

The brand wants her to use their famous points system to emulate another celebrity spokeswoman, Jennifer Hudson, to "lose a significant amount of weight."

Simpson plans to wed her fiance Eric Johnson after having the baby, which could be another motivation for the former singer and actress to drop weight.

She is expecting a boy or a girl BTW. Crazy.

Since news broke that Eric Johnson got Jessica Simpson pregnant long before she went and confirmed it, she lost out on the whole tabloid exclusive deal.

But, since the pressure's on celebs to shed the baby weight they inevitably gain as soon as possible, she may have a backup plan up her sleeve to cash in.

If Us Weekly is to be believed, then Jessica is already planning for just that, and is in talks with Weight Watchers to be their newest celebr pound-shedder.

Once baby makes three, Jess will make four. Million. All she has to do is lose "a significant amount of weight" on the points-based plan, and shill for it.

While it would be a bit surprising, even in this day and age, for a star known for promoting body acceptance to be in negotiations to make her pregnant body the new face of weight loss, her camp is already shooting down the rumor.

So false! And order is once again restored to the universe.

"There is no Weight Watchers deal," a source told E! News, claiming that Simpson planned to sign on with the company to lose the weight she'd gained over the past few years, "But then she got pregnant" and there is currently no plan to do so.

Funny, the same has been said of her wedding to Eric.

Jessica Simpson, who confirmed her pregnancy Monday, is happy with her body, according to the new issue of Lucky magazine. That is a very fortunate thing.

"Everybody fluctuates, but I'm open about my weight and confident," the 31-year-old mom-to-be with the cute baby bump says. "I don't cry about it too much."

Expecting her first child with fiance Eric Johnson, she adds: "I like the way I look."

Jessica Simpson's frame has gotten thicker over the years.

According to the str, who has to be fairly well along at this point (we knew Eric got Jessica Simpson pregnant in September), being curvy is good for business.

YA THINK?

"I got so much scrutiny for putting on extra pounds ... but I think that the decision not to make myself anorexic was actually great for branding," she explains.

She's referring to her billion-dollar fashion and beauty empire, of course, adding, "'Cause when you're really, really skinny, not everybody can relate to you."

SO true. Jessica Simpson is nothing if not a role model.

Whether it's food or Eric Johnson, Jessica Simpson is very thoughtful about what she puts into her body. As a result, she's looking a lot better lately!

The popular 1990s/early 2000s singer appeared thinned out on the new cover of Lucky magazine, and she is opening up about struggle to stay fit.

"I think a woman always stresses out about their weight," she says.

"It’s just a woman thing - unless you’re the women we don’t like that are supermodels that are just naturally fantastic. But I’m a curvy girl. I have to always be conscious of everything I’m putting into my body, if I’m going to be working out."

Jessica Simpson: Full Figured

Jessica Simpson now and early last year. Nice!

Jessica also set the record straight about rumors that she's been asked to become a judge on American Idol. Shocker alert - that was just a rumor.

"I mean, I don't think so," she says. "I haven't gotten a phone call."

If she were to become a judge, though, how would she react to it?

"I'm not a very judgmental person, so I could probably stick my foot in my mouth a couple times," she says, though she does have something to offer.

"I am a singer and I do know if it's going to happen for someone or not."

There you go. Follow the jump for an interview clip with Jess ...
