The Only Thing More Awesome Than Keri Russell’s Baby Is Her Hat

Keri Russell’s baby River Russell Deary is all sorts of awesome. As is her hat. Big floppy hats are the hotness. They protect you from the sun, they make you look like you’re channeling every cool bitch from the 60s to the 70s. Here’s Keri taking River for a walk in Santa Monica. In celebrity baby news, do you know how much these people get paid by the magazines for the first shots of them with their newborns or even for a cover with their pregnancy announcement? Let me break it down for you, courtesy of the NY Daily News:

4.1 million – Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt with daughter Shiloh. They gave the money to charity.

2 million – Christina Aguilera and her newborn Max from “People” magazine. You know she didn’t. That money went to cosmetics. Brad and Angie also scored this amount for the newly adopted Pax. Adopted kids get shafted. They’re people, too!

1 million – Nicole Richie and Joel Madden with daughter Harlow from “People”. They gave the money to the coke dealer. Larry Birkhead with his daughter Dannielynn went for 1.7 million for OK!

And then the bargain basement dwellers. Gwen Stefani and baby Kingston made $575,000 off OK! And Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady’s son John earned $100,000. On the cheap! Jamie Lynn Spears reportedly made a mil for her announcment alone! I seriously need to step it up, get famous, and get knocked up. It’s where the money is!
