How Much Money Did Jessica Simpson Make From Baby Maxwell Drew’s First Photos?

Jessica Simpson is sure to have beautiful baby photos with Maxwell Drew, born May 1 — between her own flawless face and her hot hubby’s good looks, how could she not? The kid hit the genetic jackpot! But will her new daughter’s first photos be profitable, too?

You bet, but not for as much as some other stars. The Daily Mail reports that Simpson sold the rights to Maxwell’s first photos for a cool $800,000. That’s a ton of money for most of us, but comparative chump change in the world of celebrity babies. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt raked in a whopping $11 million for photos of their twins, Vivienne and Knox, while fellow reality TV judge Jennifer Lopez took in $6 million for the first pics of her and Marc Anthony’s adorable twins Max and Emme.

Maxwell Drew’s photos, like the other famous tots’, will appear in PEOPLE. If you’re wondering why there’s such a difference in Simpson’s baby’s payday from the previous celebs, keep in mind that Simpson’s fiance and Maxi’s dad, Eric Johnson, barely garners a blip on the fame radar, whereas Marc Anthony is a Grammy winner and Brad Pitt is, well, Brad Pitt. When two stars get together to make a spawn, there’s more money and interest than when only one parent is famous.

Don’t feel too bad for Jess, though. The starlet, who, like any normal person, gained a bit of pregnancy weight, signed a deal with Weight Watchers to shed it all — for a nice $3 million! Not only that, but her fashion line is said to have pulled about $1 billion, so our girl’s laughing all the way to the bank — and to Etsy, where she’s reportedly been buying some accessories for her sure-t0-be-stylish little girl.
