She piled on a 60lbs during her pregnancy with her first child, daughter Maxwell, now 11 months. And delighted Jessica Simpson has proudly revealed that she has only gained half that amount in her second pregnancy. The singer-turned-business mogul is about to give birth to her son in a matter of weeks, and her frame has been noticeably slimmer in comparison to last year, when she prepared to give birth to Maxwell. In a new interview with Peoplemagazine, Jessica says she has been working out regularly in the lead up to the arrival of her baby boy. 'Now I’m working out three times a week,' she told the magazine. 'I’ve only gained half of what I did in my first pregnancy!' Jessica admits that she 'let herself go' when she was pregnant with Maxwell, not paying enough attention to her diet and fitness regime.
