Jessica Simpson sells first baby photos to People Magazine for $800k
For a celebrity, a baby is not just a joyous addition to the family – it’s also a photo opportunity.
Jessica Simpson has decided to have some fancy pics taken of her firstborn as it means she can earn a cool $800k at the same time.
She’s reportedly sold the first pictures of baby Maxwell to People magazine for that that hefty sum. The US publication are famed for shelling out massive amounts for the first images of celebrity’s babies; back in 2008 they shelled out $6million for a snap of Jennifer Lopez’s twins while they paid Brad and Angie $11million to picture Knox and Vivienne (the pair went on to donate their fee to charity we might add).
It’s rumoured that Jessica has also secured a lucrative deal with Weight Watchers to lose her baby weight and to be the company’s new spokesperson, plus she apparently intends to add a babywear collection to her already profitable fashion/accessories range. There’s even talk of her releasing Jessica Simpson branded nappy rash cream and nappies.
Presumably when that’s done she’ll contemplate her next move for total world domination.
