Fine. Now, when do we get to see her?!
Let's say that Simpson and her fiancé sell the first photos of their daughter to a willing publication. How much is a magazine going to have to spend so that we can have the pleasure of cooing at baby Maxwell from the comfort of our own computers?
While E! News has heard that there is no deal in place yet for the first glimpse at that presumably adorable little face, an Industry source says they could go for roughly $750,000—and that People could end up being their first de facto family album.
"Jess dreamed since she was a young girl about being a mom," papa Joe Simpson tweeted after Maxwell's arrival. "Dreams come true! So happy!"
And speaking of large sums, Simpson gave birth this morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where a three-room, two-bath deluxe maternity suite (why would she had laid claim to any less space?) goes for $3,784 per day, not including extras like enhanced security, limousine service, a private nurse, lactation education and home visits from an R.N. after mommy is discharged.
But that per diem does include a host of creature comforts, including a stereo, a flat-screen TV and DVD player, a refrigerator stocked with bottled water and juice, a basket of fresh fruit and muffins upon arrival, deluxe meals for the new mom and a celebratory dinner for mom and dad.
Why would Simpson rush home when she's being treated to all that?!
