In Hollywood, getting pregnant is an investment. Between baby photos, birth announcements, and TV interviews, putting a fetus in your stomach can mean a big, fat payday.
And Jessica Simpson will even get paid to lose her baby weight. The mom-to-be is currently in talks with Weight Watchers for a $4 million deal to work off her pregnancy pounds.
Actually, Simpson has been in talks with the weight loss company for a while now, even before she was pregnant, initially wanting to sign up to lose the weight she's gained over the past few years. Not baby weight, Twinkie and Funyons weight.
"Then she got pregnant," a source tells Us Magazine. "So this was the perfect compromise."
So here are the details of the contract. Simpson has one year on the program to "lose a significant amount of weight." From there, she must show off her results on a series of ads for the company, a la Jennifer Hudson, their most recent spokesperson.
Great, does this mean we're going to have to listen to that, "I know how I feel" song over and over again?
Jessica says while she's pregnant, she's actually been enjoying her new weight. "I'm bigger than I've ever been, she said recently. "But I want to show off my bump!"
And it's going to be one of the most stylish childbirths ever. After Jessica's water breaks, she plans on stepping into some heels.
"I'm probably going to deliver my baby in these (4-inch YSL heels)," Simpson joked. "I went to the doctor yesterday and he said, 'You're gonna need to get out of those heels!' I was like 'Excuse me! I'll be delivering in these heels!'"
So probably the first thing this baby is gonna see is four inch pumps.
"I like wearing things more fitted," Simpson said about her pregnancy style thus far. "You want to show off your bump! It's just so fun. You don’t want to wear muumuus so you can moo around town."
Hell, some women wear muumuus and they're not even pregnant.
"I can imagine my tummy glowing," Simpson says of her baby bump. "I'm already like the cheesy mom that my kids are embarrassed by!"
The fashion guru added that, while she's "definitely bigger than I've ever been," she's also "never felt so connected with my body in my life."
