Simpson sells first daughter pics for $800,000 - report

Jessica Simpson has reportedly sold the first pictures of her newborn daughter for $800,000.

The singer-and-actress - who gave birth to Maxwell Drew on May 1 - and fiance Eric Johnson are said to have agreed a deal with People magazine to show off their little girl to the world.

People magazine are famed for paying huge amounts of money to celebrities to pose with their new babies. In February 2008, the publication reportedly splashed out $6m on snaps of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's twins, Max and Emme.

Just a few months later, they are said to have paid Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie $11m for an exclusive peek at their twins, Knox and Vivienne. Those proceeds were given to charity.

Since becoming a mother, Jessica said her life had changed for the better and she is smitten with her adorable daughter.

She tweeted: "I am so in love with baby Maxwell. I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I've ever experienced."

In a statement on her official website following the arrival of 9lbs 13oz Maxwell, Jessica wrote: "We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!"
