Is It Right For Celebrities To Pimp Out Their Babies On Magazine Covers?

Posted: Updated:

Jennifer Lopez, whose twins were born early this morning, is just the latest in a long line of celebrities to sell the first photographs of her babies to a magazine for big bucks. People reportedly paid between $4-6 million for the exclusive (even though the $1.5M they shelled out for Christina Aguilera's baby pictures didn't exactly prove to be a wise investment), and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly planning to sell the confirmation that they're expecting to a magazine, with the proceeds going to charity.



In this, the first Huffington Post/Alpha Kitty video panel — where we ask members of former Seventeen editor-in-chief Atoosa Rubenstein's "video collective" to weigh in on issues in the news and popular culture — Alpha Kitties respond to the question: How do you feel about celebrities pimping out their babies?

Alpha Kitty is a video collective started by former Seventeen Editor in Chief Atoosa Rubenstein to give young women a voice and a platform to get their opinions heard. Atoosa wanted to use her voice and influence to create eyeballs for young women (mostly college age) so they can have a stage for their thoughts and ideas.
