Just weeks after she welcomed her first daughter into the world, Jessica Simpson hooked a deal with People magazine to sell pictures of Maxwell Drew Johnson for $800,000.
These exclusive photos of the two-week old baby girl, fathered by the fashion icon’s fiance Eric Johnson are an addition to the $3 million deal Miss Simpson signed with Weight Watchers to promote her more than 40 pound pregnancy pound shed.
“The market for celebrity babies simply doesn’t exist anymore,” Jo Piazza, a journalist specializing in celebrity income told the blog Fashionista. “Magazines realized that it doesn’t benefit them to pay over a million.”
In 2008, the publication paid Jennifer Lopez an outstanding $6 million for pictures of her twins, while OK magazine offered Matthew McConaughey $3 million for exclusive prints of his baby boy the same year.
The blonde beauty is not putting the extra earnings to waste as she continues to shower her little one with gifts and tweeted Friday (May 11), “I’m addicted to buying headbands w massive flowers for Maxwell on etsy,” the gushing mom and “Fashion Star. She is insanely beautiful I can’t help but play dress up!”
Not sure how much of this is true… I don’t think the Weight Watchers deal was ever confirmed?
