Hollywood stars in baby picture deal
Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas
Catherine and Michael have been protective of Dylan
Hollywood stars Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones are reported to have signed a 600,000 deal for exclusive photographs with their baby Dylan.

OK! magazine beat off competition from rival publications to ensure its most expensive deal since the 1m coverage of David and Victoria Beckham's marriage.

Pictures of the family will appear in the magazine next week.

It is not clear, though, if Douglas, 55, and Ms Jones, 30, have also signed a deal with the magazine to cover their much anticipated wedding later this year.

The Hollywood couple have spent time and energy preventing paparazzi photographers sneaking pictures of Dylan, who was born on 9 August.

OK! editor Martin Townsend splashed out on the deal in the hope of repeating the success of the Beckham wedding coverage, which added 550,000 sales.

The couple - who are reportedly worth $200m - remain secretive about details of their wedding, following their engagement on Millennium Eve.

Earlier in the summer, the couple set aside work commitments in preparation for the birth of Dylan - who bears the name of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas.
