Picture Of Baby Precious

Associated Press

A swarm of reporters, paparazzi and TV camera crews Tuesday staked out the hospital where Madonna gave birth, hoping for even one image of the 6-pound, 9-ounce Material Baby.

“World photo rights to Madonna’s baby would get $250,000 to $350,000,” said Steve Coz, editor of the National Enquirer. “She’s huge overseas. This is right up there with JFK Jr.’s wedding.”

Her publicist, though, declined to say when the 38-year-old pop diva would leave the Hospital of the Good Samaritan, where she gave birth Monday to Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon.
