New mom Jessica Simpson has been using Twitter to express her love for her daughter Maxwell Drew, but the reports have now come in as to how much money she sold the first photos of the baby for.
The Fashion Star mentor expressed she is addicted to “buying headbands w/ massive flowers for Maxwell on etsy!”
Now, Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson are reportedly $800,000 richer and can afford a lot more of those headbands after selling photos of Maxwell to People Magazine.
AceShoeBiz reports that the reported $800,000 paycheck for the pictures is a lot less than what other celebrity moms such as Jennifer Lopez and dads such as Matthew McConaughey receieved for their newborns.
Lopez and her then-husband Marc Anthony got a reported $6 million for pictures of their twins Max and Emme and McConaughey and his now-fiancé Camila Alves reportedly got $3 million for sharing the first pictures of their son Levi.
However, Simpson and Johnson are said to have received less – even though it’s still a huge amount – for their pictures because there’s simply no market for it anymore.
"The market for celebrity babies simply doesn't exist anymore,” explained Jo Piazza of blog Fashionista Magazines. “Magazines realized that it doesn't benefit them to pay over a million."
