Following her very big pregnancy, Jessica Simpson has reportedly sold the first photos of baby Maxwell Johnson for a cool $800,000. The photos of her baby girl, her first child with fiance Eric Johnson, were bought by PEOPLE magazine, several sources tell Women's Wear Daily.

The deal isn't quite as significant as other celeb baby photos, which have fetched over a million dollars. When Jennifer Lopez gave birth to twins Emme and Max, she pocketed $6 million from PEOPLE, while Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt famously received more than $11 million for the exclusive on their twins Knox and Vivienne.

Should celebs sell their baby photos? Sound off in the comments and click through the gallery to see the most expensive celebrity baby photos.

Not all celebrities are courting celebrity weeklies, though. Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z posted pictures of Blue Ivy on Tumblr, giving them away for free.

    Way to pimp out the kid.

  • Ashley

    That's disgusting, exploiting her own kid.

  • John

    Jessica Simpson is the sloppy seconds of Bam Margera, Billy Corgan, and John Mayer.

    @Aurora as long as they give it to charity or put it in a trust for her education they're fine Jessica may play a ditzy blonde but she's actually a smart business woman and celebs have been selling pics of their babies to magazines for nearly 3 quarters of a century because they know their fans want to see them and somebody that workds for them would leak them if they didn't sell them. Jessica didn't fall in to her fortune she worked her ass off to get it

    I really hope they give that money to many people work their asses off for so much less, hardly getting by on what little they make. They do nothing, but take a photo and sell it, who cares!!! Make's me sick, something is wrong with the world we live in!!!!

    why is that a surprise 6 figures for celeb baby pics is nothing new big enough stars have been able to score 7 figures for nearly 5 decades. When Patricia Neal sold the first pictures of her youngest daughter Lucy to life magazine the pics were worth 3.85 million dollars granted she had recently won an oscar and survived a series of strokes while pregnant. Brad & Angie got 14 million for the twins most of which was donated to charity. she still gets that kind of money for the first pics of her baby because she's below 35 when Natasha Gregson Wagner has her first child this summer and sells the first pics she'll get at most 200k because she's over 40 and people think it's irresponsible for a woman to have children at that age. though Natasha is also the daughter of screen legend Natalie Wood so that might drive up the price
