The baby has finally been born, which means it’s time for the magazines to start bidding like crazy on the first exclusive pics of the kid, right?
In Jessica Simpson’s case, notsomuch.
According to WWD, 9-pound, 13-ounce baby Maxwell Drew Simpson hasn’t sparked a bidding war. People magazine is reportedly ready to offer about $800,000, an amount that pales in comparison to the $3 million OK magazine apparently shelled out to Matthew McConaughey or the $6 million Jennifer Lopez received from People.
What gives? We know we’re curious to see the child who had people wondering whether Jess was giving birth to twins.
But the new mom doesn’t have anything to worry about: She just inked a $4 million weight loss deal with Weight Watchers, and NBC has picked up her show Fashion Star for a second season. So $800K is pocket change, really.
If we were famous, we’d totally have a kid just to get paid for the pics. Hmm, that sounds bad, doesn’t it...
