Jessica Simpson didn’t go the Beyonce and Jay-Z Blue Ivy route, but her and her baby daddy, Eric Johnson, are also not Beyonce and Jay Z. The something-or-another star brokered a deal with People magazine to sell them the first photos of her baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson, for $800,000. I guess it was in her stomach for long enough, she might as well profit off it!
This is much less money than celebrity babies have banked in the past, but from my POV, it’s still a lot of money for photos of a baby of two not-quite-that-famous people. Jessica already makes lots of moolah from her fashion empire, so it probably won’t make a dent in her wealth. Oh well.
But in addition to the sales from her baby photos, Jessica also signed a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers so that people everywhere can scrutinize the 40-plus pounds she has to lose in order to be skinny enough to be on the “after” side of a Weight Watchers ad.
