Jessica Simpson has denied claims that Weight Watchers is pressuring her to lose her baby weight quickly.

Simpson, who welcomed her first child on May 1, reportedly signed a multi-million dollar deal with Weight Watchers to be the weight loss program's newest spokesmodel. She has been spotted several times over the past month working out with celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, but denies that she is being pushed to drop the pounds.

The new mom Tweeted on June 27, "Just so everyone knows...Weight Watchers hasn't put ANY pressure on me! I'm trying to be as healthy as I can be for myself and I feel great!"

Simpson announced on May 30 that she would be the newest spokes model for the Weight Watchers weight loss program. She Tweeted, "So excited to be a part of the @WeightWatchers family!"

The company said in a statement after the announcement, "We're thrilled that Jessica Simpson has chosen to join Weight Watchers to adopt a healthier lifestyle and inspire others to do the same. Her talent, resilience and positive outlook already make her a great role model, and by deciding to trade in yo-yo dieting for a healthier lifestyle, we know she will inspire many women to join her."

The 31-year-old singer and her fiance Eric Johnson welcomed their daughter Maxwell Drew on May 1 and she told the magazine that "life has completely changed."

She posted a busty photo of herself walking with Maxwell in a stroller on Twitter on June 22.

Simpson was rudely mocked for putting on too much weight during her pregnancy and in April, slammed tabloid reports that said she had already welcomed her child.
