Brad Pitt is taking adorable daughter Shiloh on a shopping spree in Cannes in this photo.

The entire Brangelina clan was in the city for the Cannes Film Festival, as Brad was able to slip away almost unnoticed because a majority of the paparazzi was focused on a very pregnant Angelina Jolie.

The sky is the limit when it comes to how much money celebrities are being paid to pimp out their babies in celebrity news and gossip magazines nowadays.

After paying Christina Aguilera $1.5 million in February for shots of her newborn son, Max, People shelled out a whopping $6 million to Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony for photos of their newborn twins, Max and Emme.

Brad Pitt and Kids

One celebrity news editor, who asked to remain anonymous, said:

"It's at the point now where some stars might decide to have more kids just to collect the money from their photos."

Pregnant celebrities are now "treating this like a game," said National Enquirer Executive Editor Barry Levine.

"It's become big business now," Levine said. "It's outrageous, they've gotten very sophisticated. The rights are bought up now even before the celebrity enters the hospital. They hire extra security so it's impossible to obtain a photo illegally."

Brangelina made (then gave away) millions from selling photos of Shiloh.

Levine said stars now realize that having a child in this celebrity news media era is "akin to getting a role in a movie."

Celebrity gossip publications don't mind - they recoup money over time with magazine sales, Web hits, and by re-selling the photos overseas.

Angelina Jolie, rumored to be carrying twins, could trump all celebrities by commanding $10 million for the first photos of the babies, Levine said.

"That's where the market is right now," he said. "When I was the editor of Star in L.A., we bought photos of Lisa Marie Presley's baby back in 1989 for $100,000, and at the time I thought it was outrageous. Now it's chump change."

American Media Editorial Director Bonnie Fuller said that the celebrity baby photo payouts just keep escalating: "If J.Lo really did get $6 million, then I think Angelina can now command $8 million," Fuller said. "The magazines must look at it as a long-term investment, but I think it'll cap out at a certain point."

You can't blame Maddox Jolie-Pitt for often feeling left out. The tyke is considered the cutest celebrity baby out there, yet all he hears about is his sister, Shiloh.

Or that Scientology spawn, Suri Cruise.

And just when that drama calms down, Britney Spears goes ahead and gives birth once more.

Is it any wonder that little Maddox feels bitter and betrayed? He's obviously trying to ditch the spotlight of Hollywood in exchange for the glory of the soccer field. Just take a look at him here, trying to bend it like David Beckham.

Let's see Shiloh do this!

Brad Pitt
