Jessica Simpson has reportedly sold pictures of her newborn Maxwell Drew to People magazine for $800,000.
Jessica Simpson, whose celebrity fashion line is reported to have raked in one billion dollars in sales, gave birth to her first child, daughter Maxwell Drew, on May 1.
People magazine has done a deal with Jessica Simpson to run exclusive photos, sources told Women’s Wear Daily.
It is significantly less that some other stars received for baby pictures – Jennifer Lopez is understood to have received $6 million from People for snaps of her twins.
The same publication reportedly gave Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt around $11 million for the exclusive on their twins Vivienne and Knox.
Of course, not all A-list celebrities demand high fees – Beyoncé and Jay-Z declined all offers and instead posted the first pictures of Blue Ivy Carter on their Tumblr page.
It seems Jessica Simpson may be set to cash in on another front too – there are also unconfirmed reports that she is signing a her $4 million deal with Weight Watchers.
Jessica Simpson is certainly enjoying motherhood, telling her Twitter followers this week: “I am so in love with baby Maxwell. I want to cry every time I look at her.”
She added: “Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced.”
Jessica Simpson is currently engaged to Maxwell’s father, sportsman Eric Johnson.
