Jessica got teased for the amount of weight she gained while pregnant. Luckily, she’s lost almost all of it!

In just four short months, Jessica Simpson has lost almost all of her baby weight — and that’s no easy feat, considering the new mom packed on nearly 50 pounds during her pregnancy!
“I got [accused of having] quadruplets, I got [called] Octomom; a lot of people put pressure on me while I was pregnant, but I was so excited having Maxwell in my belly I didn’t pay much attention,” Jessica said Sept. 11 on Good Morning America.

Octomom, of course, is the nickname originated by Nadya Suleman, the second woman ever in the United States to give birth to eight babies at once.

Jessica has lost more than 40 pounds since giving birth, and although she wouldn’t give specific the numbers on the scale, she previously told Katie Couric that coming on national TV was one of her biggest accomplishments.

Are you proud of Jessica for losing the weight so quickly?
