Did she and Eric have Maxwell House coffee after conceiving? Whatever the reason, the new mom elected not to explain in the birth announcement she put out on the Web.”   So what’s next for this new mom? Her fashion lines raked in $1 billion in 2011, according to E! Online .  But will Simpson get more cash for her new baby girl?  E! Online says probably not.   It says the days of raking in the big bucks for baby pictures are over.  Simpson tried to sell confirmation of her pregnancy and her first baby photos for $750,000 but didn’t get any takers.   But US Weekly photo editor Peter Grossman tells TIME — he disagrees.   “Being a celebrity mom has more business opportunities than ever before…Now, it’s not just about selling your baby pics. It’s starting a clothing line or endorsing a stroller. The value of a celebrity mom has never been higher.”   Simpson has already cashed in on a newly inked $3 million deal with Weight Watchers.  A contributor for NBC’s “Today” says there’s no time for this mommy to put her feet up and enjoy maternity leave — it’s time to hit the gym.   “While it seems cruel and unusual to burden a new mother with the additional pressure of losing her baby weight so publicly, we look forward to seeing Jess handle it with her usual charmingly Southern aplomb: "No more fried Twinkies, y'all! My Daisy Dukes are waiting!"   Simpson and Johnson had initially planned to get married before Simpson’s due date but decided to postpone the wedding until after Simpson had the baby.
