Jessica Simpson is strutting her post-baby stuff, and all we can think is: She looks like a million bucks. Or $3 million. Or maybe even $4 million, depending on who you believe.
"Just taking a walk around the block... Street legal???," Simpson said Friday on Twitter as she posted a photo of herself, above left, flashing massive amounts of mama cleavage. Compare that to her look from "The Dukes of Hazzard," above right, circa 2005.
The difference now is that Simpson is under contract with Weight Watchers, CNNMoney reported a while back, and millions are riding on her ability to take her 5-foot-3 shape from a reported high of 210 pounds while pregnant down to a goal weight of 130.
Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson welcomed daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson on May 1. Maxwell was delivered by C-section, meaning Jessica had to do some healing before hitting the gym.
Back in 2005, a 25-year-old Simpson, then married to Nick Lachey, got in shape for those Daisy Duke short-shorts with a low-carb, high-protein diet and two hours a day, six days a week of running, squats, lunges and weight-resistance exercises, under the guidance of trainer Michael Alexander.
Now it'll be Points Plus for the new mom, who turns 32 next month, and workouts with trainer Haley Pasternak, according to InTouch, which reported that the fashionista recently hit the gym five times over 14 days.
InTouch put the Weight Watchers contract at $4 million. CNNMoney, citing ABC News, estimated $3 million.
