Ashlee Simpson’s manager/father has hit back at reports he’s trying to sell his daughter’s big pregnancy reveal and baby pictures to U.S. tabloids, reports.

Insiders claim Joe Simpson wants $1 million US for the package, in which pop star Simpson will finally confirm she is expecting fiancé Pete Wentz’s child — but he insists the story is ridiculous.

“This is completely not true,” Simpson said in a statement through his publicist.

A representative for the minister-turned-pop mogul adds, “What's next? Joe will DJ the wedding and bake the cake?”

Wentz has denied reports his partner is expecting the couple’s first child and Simpson insisted all pregnancy questions were “inappropriate” when she was quizzed by the media earlier this week.
