Jessica Simpson is soaking up motherhood in the best way possible: dressing up her newest bundle of joy, Maxwell Drew. Simpson gave birth to her first child only weeks ago admits via Twitter, “I'm addicted to buying headbands w massive flowers for Maxwell on etsy! She is insanely beautiful I can't help but play dress up!” A friend of Jess tells People that, “The baby is wearing different outfits every second.” So when will fans get to see this alleged beauty? Quite possibly soon. According to Women’s Wear Daily, the Fashion Star judge will sell photos of Maxwell to People magazine for a reported $800,000. This amount reportedly falls short to such celebs as Matthew McConaughey who nabbed $3 million, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt brought in a $11 million for their twins, while Jennifer Lopez got $6 million for her twins. Jessica doesn’t have much to be disappointed about though. Back in December, OK magazine reported that Jess signed on for a $3 million Weight Watchers deal to help drop the weight she gained while pregnant.
