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

February 19th, 2008 // 13 Comments

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!

    I read that photos of J Lo’s twins should fetch up to $6 million!!!! They were saying $3 mil/per child. I still think that even if the diva was only having one baby, she’d want more money than ANY OTHER celebrity. She’s got such a huge ego. At least Brangelina gave their baby photo $$ to charity. I can’t see J Lo donating her $$.

I just want to find a mature gentleman for fun here… I also uploaded my hot photos taken on beach with my lovely bikini under the name milkwoman on may want to check them out.

    Most of the time celebs donate the money from baby pictures to charity and I think J-Lo will do the same. It’s predatory parents like Larry Birkhead who sell the pictures with profit being the sole motivation that gives this practice a bad name. Celebrities who do the right thing and pass this money on to non-profit organizations are acting selflessly while Larry is only looking out for himself (selfish).

    I’M with Belicoso–it’s not totally fair to lump the parents who sell pix for charity together with those who sell them to further exploit their children, a la Larry Birkhead.
