Jessica Simpson is having a hard time adjusting to being a new mom, and is crying over the heartbreaking emotions she's feeling as she deals with the pressure to shed the weight she gained while pregnant.
"She's so emotional," a friend said about Maxwell Drew Johnson's. "She doesn't want to go to the gym."
Jessica, 31, has been hired by Weight Watchers to drop 50 pounds in just five months and she's struggling with the responsibility.
"She doesn't want to leave her baby. Sometimes she just starts crying. It's hard for her," In Touch magazine reported.
"She's consumed with the new baby. She and Eric are often up with Maxi (Maxwell) all night."
Apparently the new mom is desperate to lose the weight.
"She gets so upset. She wants her body back so badly, but it's beyond hard."
Jess is hoping to get back in shape and her primary reason is her new baby.
"Jessica wants to set a good example for Maxi. She wants to teach her daughter to have a healthy lifestyle."
Jessica has been spotted working out frequently, but she hasn't shown off the results of her hard work yet.
