Jessica Alba has advised Beyoncé and Jay-Z to sell pictures of their baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter, to the press.
BEYONCE AND JAY-Z: RELATIONSHIP IN PICS
First-time parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z are probably being bombarded with baby advice from everyone in their lives, even so, Jessica Alba has stepped in to offer some tips and tricks of her own.
The 30-year-old actress, and mum of two, Alba, has told the couple to take control of the public's desire to get a first glimpse of their little one.
Jessica and husband Cash Warren decided to sell the first photos of their daughter Honor in 2008 in an attempt to control the paparazzi.
'For our family, we just wanted to control the experience,' Alba told CNN.
The photos were sold to OK! magazine for a reported $1.5 million.

'We put the money that the picture made into a bank account for Honor to do whatever she wants to do with.
'It's her picture, it's her birth, and we didn't want it to be like a weird thing when we were walking out of the house for the first time.'
Alba told CNN she believes that selling pictures will stop the paparazzi from going to dangerous lengths to snap the first photos of Blue Ivy.
'If there's a price tag on your child - which is so bizarre - people will go to crazy lengths. We wanted to avoid the hysteria,' she added, saying that they had a great experience with OK! using a photographer they knew already.
