How Much Is Baby Bronx Worth?

So, now that Ashlee Simpson-Wentz has given birth, and now that she and husband Pete Wentz have announced their baby boy’s name is “Bronx Mowgli Wentz,” it’s time for the next step in the baby hype:

When are we getting the first pictures?

Well, still no word on when and where (though, considering People paid for exclusive wedding photos, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Pete and Ash go back there…though I’m holding out hope for something more like Rolling Stone…), but we do have a quoted figure of how much.

Earlier this year, Joe Simpson had reportedly tried to sell the exclusive rights to the first photos with the then-mythical Bronx (this news came just a day or so after Pete denied the rumors and claimed they were a “witch-hunt”) for $1 Million. At the time, the idea was laughed at as supposedly too much money, since Simpson’s career at the time was mostly framed by the SNL incident.

However, reports are now coming in that the first shots of Bronx Mowgli Wentz will sell for roughly $2 Million.

To put this in perspective, the first pictures of Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, Angelina and Brad’s twins, fetched $20 Million, which was promptly donated to charity. However, pictures of Harlow Madden, daughter of Pete and Ashlee’s friends Nicole Ritchie and Joel Madden, only fetched $1 Million. Photos of Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter Maddie also fetched $1 Million.

While all of this may seem extravagent, keep in mind that the money is often set aside for the child’s future (college ain’t cheap, even for celebrities) or donated to charities. And, considering Pete and Ashlee’s history of social awareness, it’s always possible the money could go to a worthy cause.

No matter what, how excited are you for our first look at Bronx?
