Everything she touches turns to gold!

Jessica Simpson has done a deal to sell her daughter's first pictures for an incredible $800,000.

The Fashion Star judge has brokered the impressive amount in return for People magazine running exclusive photos of the tot, according to Women’s Wear Daily.

The 31-year-old star, whose celebrity fashion line is reported to have earned her one billion dollars, gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Maxwell Drew, by fiancé Eric Johnson on May 1.

Simpson's huge payday still ranks her well behind other celebrities who hit premium pay dirt with their progenies.

Matthew McConaughey and his girlfriend sold the first photos of their newborn son Levi to OK! magazine for $3 million.

Jennifer Lopez is thought to have received $6 million from People for the first look at her twins.

And the same publication reportedly gave Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt around $11 million for the exclusive on their twins Vivienne and Knox.

But not every celebrity couple makes such a deal, Beyoncé and Jay-Z declined all offers and instead posted the first pictures of their daughter Blue Ivy Carter, born January 8, on their Tumblr page.

Jessica is loving being a mom, telling her Twitter followers this week: "I am so in love with baby Maxwell. I want to cry every time I look at her."

She added: "Motherhood is by far the best thing I've ever experienced."
