Jessica Simpson may be back in those Daisy Dukes yet.

Simpson told Katie Couric that she's lost more than 40 pounds since giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew on May 1. But when Couric pressed Simpson on the season opener yesterday of Couric's new show "Katie," the Weight Watchers spokesperson remained mum about the exact amount of pounds she's lost. The singer reportedly gained 40 to 50 pounds while pregnant.

Simpson was Couric's first guest on the much-anticipated show "Katie." Simpson, who has not sat down for any major interviews since she gave birth, is engaged to Maxwell's father, Eric Johnson.

"I've just had a lot of pressure on me to lose the baby weight," Simpson told Couric.

How did she lose the weight? She told Couric she's been focusing on her diet, wanting to be a healthy mom for her baby.
