News just broke that People magazine bought the first photos of Jessica Simpson's baby girl, Maxwell Drew. And the price for those photos? $805,000!!
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:
matthew mccounaughey levi ok magazine
Matthew McConaughey received $3 million from OK! magazine for the first photos of Levi.
jennifer lopez twin people magazine
People magazine paid Jennifer Lopez $6 million for the first photos of her twins, Max and Emme.
angelina jolie people magzine twins
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, $805,000 isn't really all that much. It's actually kind of a low offer...
