Making money from babies

Well there are so many ways celebrities "sell" their babies these days. First, they sell their newborn baby's photos to magazine. Now, Leyton Hewitt, our tennis "star" and his wife (who used to be a TV star and singer) think of a new way to make money from their baby girl.

It wasn't the birth per se that caught his attention, however; it was the manner in which the baby's name was announced: via a paid SMS subscription service called ''Text A Star''. (In the unlikely event you're not a subscriber, it's ''Ava Sydney Hewitt''.)

Has the world gone crazy? I hope they donate some of the proceeds to charity.
