Jessica Simpson Sells First Photo of Baby Maxwell for $800,000
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 mogul'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. "I'm addicted to buying headbands w massive flowers for Maxwell on etsy," Jessica gushed. "She is insanely beautiful I can't help but play dress up!"
Ever since she and fiance Eric Johnson welcomed their daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson on May 1, the fashion-loving singer seems like she couldn't be any happier as a new mom.
The “With You” songstress took to her Twitter page on Tuesday (May 8) to share her feelings, writing, "I am so in love with baby Maxwell. I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I've ever experienced."
An insider told press that things couldn’t be going better for the Simpson/Johnson family. "Everyone is marveling at what a natural Jessica is. She was born to be a mom!"
