She’s already amassed one billion dollars in sales of her fashion line, but that doesn’t mean that Jessica Simpson would just take the Beyonce route and post the photos of her newborn on the internet.
According to reports, the star netted $800,000 for the exclusive photos that appear in this week’s issue of People magazine.
Admittedly, it’s not the staggering amounts once paid to celebrities to show off their new babies, but in these times, it’s still a nice little side earner.
Coupled with the news that she has a deal with Weight Watches and is designing a maternity line, Jessica is laughing all the way to the bank.
But, she goes to great lengths to insist that motherhood is her greatest role yet. The 31-year-old who welcomed their daughter Maxwell Drew on May 1, gushes to People magazine: “Life has completely changed.”
She adds: “From how I sleep to what I think about, Maxwell has definitely taken over everything!”
In the issue, which is on stands now, Jessica poses up with fiancé Eric Johnson and their daughter, and reveal that they stare at their child “all the time”.
And despite saying that she “can’t get enough” of her tot, Jessica concedes that being a mom is a “full-on job”.
We’re sure many working moms, without Jessica’s vast fortune, would be inclined to agree with this and hasten to add, that is a hell of a lot harder for them.
