News just broke that People magazine bought the first photos of Jessica Simpson’s baby girl, Maxwell Drew. And the price for those photos? $800,000!!
Insane, right? But it turns out, not really. Considering the going rate for celebrity baby photos in the past, People actually sort of got the photos for pretty cheap. Not that Jessica Simpson is in dire need for extra cash, but take a look at what some other celebrity parents were paid for their baby photos:
Nicole Richie raked in $1 million for the first photo of her baby girl, Harlow Madden.
Jessica Alba reportedly got paid $1.5 million by OK! magazine for the first photos of Honor Warren.
Christina Aguilera scored $1.5 million for the first photos of her son, Max Bratman, from People magazine.
Matthew McConaughey received $3 million from OK! magazine for the first photos of Levi.
People magazine paid Jennifer Lopez $6 million for the first photos of her twins, Max and Emme.
Angelina Jolie sold the rights to the first photos of Shiloh to Getty Images–People magazine paid $4 million for them.
A few years later, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reportedly received $12-$14 million for the first photos of Knox and Vivienne.
So comparatively speaking, $800,000 isn’t really all that much. Wonder why she got such a low offer? Either way, we can’t wait to see the issue. We’ll post the photo(s) of Jessica and baby Maxwell as soon as we see it.
