How much would you pay to see pictures of Jude Law's new baby? I wouldn't pay anything, but then again I don't get into the whole paying for the first pictures of the baby but obviously someone does it or magazines wouldn't keep paying the money. One thing I think we can all agree on though is that if you were not looking at the picture right now there is no way you could give me the name of the woman who just had Jude's baby. Somehow, despite the fact she isn't a celebrity and spent all of one week with Jude she just received $300,000 from Hello Magazine for 14 pages of photos of her and the new baby. Really? So what the magazine is doing is rewarding her for getting pregnant by a celebrity. To give you an idea, $300K is more than Nicole Richie got this last time for the pictures of her and Toucan on People.
$300K is more than most celebrities receive for baby pictures. If Hello has a bunch of loose money kicking around and no place to spend it I am pretty sure we could find a lot more worthier places than Samantha Burke's wallet. Oh you can kid yourself and think she is going to save it for the baby, but we would just be lying to ourselves and that isn't a good way to start a new week.
Oh, and I love the quote from Samantha on the cover. "Jude hasn't met Sophia yet, but I'm sure he will be a wonderful father." I guess she is basing that on the 32 hours she spent with him in total almost a year ago of which 31 was spent in bed.
