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.
Do you think it’s time celebrities stop selling off photos of their newborns? Or it justifiable based on the public’s intense interest? Let us know your thoughts.
She just welcomed her first baby, Maxwell, a mere few weeks ago, and now Jessica Simpson is turning her attention to another pressing matter: Her wedding!
The reality star was initially due to wed Eric Johnson last November, but the new addition to their family meant that the couple had to put their nuptials on hold.
Now, a source is revealing to Life & Style magazine the exact date of when the couple intend to wed.
Jessica Simpson welcomed baby Maxwell just a few weeks ago, but the performer, designer and new mom has yet to slow down. Now she’s busy planning her nuptials! An insider reveals exclusively to the new issue of Life & Style — on newsstands now — that Jessica and her fiancé, Eric Johnson, have set a new wedding date: Dec. 12, 2012 — 12/12/12.
The couple, who have been engaged since November 2010, reportedly had been planning to wed in Hawaii on Nov. 11 (11/11/11) but put their plans on hold after Jess discovered she’d become pregnant. With a new date set, the couple are still considering a laid-back beachside ceremony. “Jessica and Eric are eyeing the Hawaiian island of Kauai for the reception for around 60 family and friends,” the insider reveals.
But that’s not all the Fashion Star mentor has in the works. “Jessica is busy planning two very important events — Maxwell’s baptism and her wedding to Eric,” a pal reveals to Life & Style.
She’s hired celebrity party planner Mindy Weiss, who planned Jessica’s Charlotte’s Web–themed baby shower, as well as her 2002 wedding to Nick Lachey, to take care of the details for both extravaganzas!

Just this week, Jessica Simpson gushed about her daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson, telling her Twitter followers just how much she adored being a mom
“I am so in love with baby Maxwell,” she wrote. “I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced.”
And, having her first child is also going to turn out to be quite profitable too, if new reports turn out to be correct.
Jessica, who already has amassed one billion dollars in sales of her fashion line, is said to have sold the first pictures of her baby girl to People magazine for $800,000.
Though the price isn’t as high as the glory days of the $11 million for the exclusive of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s twins Vivienne and Knox, the figure is still extraordinarily generous given the current declining sales of the celebrity weeklies.
Then, there are the mounting rumors that she is set to sign a $3 million deal with Weight Watchers as she endeavors to shed those whopping 40 pounds she gained while she was pregnant.
Oh, and when she does marry sportsman Eric Johnson, those photos will expected to be sold off too, to the highest bidder.
No one can ever accuse Jessica of being a ditzy blonde. Shrewd businesswoman, is more like it.
Jessica Simpson and her fiancé, Eric Johnson, finally welcomed daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson on April 30, and friends are already gushing about how much the newborn resembles her mom!
“She’s so cute!” a friend of Jessica’s who has seen the baby tells Life & Style. “And Maxwell looks a lot like her mom: same cheeks and nose! Her hair’s brown, but it’s getting blonder every day.”
Just one week into motherhood and Jessica is already a natural! According to the friend, Jessica is breast-feeding Maxwell—who weighed in at 9 pounds, 13 ounces at birth—and is a pro at changing diapers! “She was born for this role,” the friend tells Life & Style about the singer and designer. “Jessica knows what she’s doing.”
And nothing can ruin Jessica’s mood these days. “This has been the greatest experience of our lives,” Jessica’s said.
