I don't know, you guys. We all may be eating our words once the holy child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is birthed into this world. Right now, we're all (yes, including me!) assuming that Kim is going to bank off of her pregnancy and her child, because, well, she's banked off of pretty much everything in her life thus far. But looks like we might be wrong. Word on the street is Kimye was already offered a "Brangelina-sized" payday for first pics of their baby. And they turned it down.
According to TMZ, the parents-to-be were offered $3 million from an overseas tabloid for photos of their baby, who, at this point, is probably the size of a tube of Chapstick. And they told the tabloid to beat it. In fact, supposedly Kim and Kanye have already had multiple million-dollar offers for photos of Baby Kimye, and they've turned down all of them.
Are they really going to stick to their guns and keep this baby's life private?
Or are they just holding out for more money?
I don't know, dudes -- as much as I can't help but think Kim's baby will make some sort of appearance on a tabloid cover, as well as in episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (because that's what Kim does), thus far, the couple has been pretty vocal, and adamant, about keeping the child out of the spotlight. I/we definitely could be wrong.
It would be really cool if Kim and Kanye pulled a Beyonce and Jay-Z and just released a photo of their baby on their own website, so no one (including themselves) could cash in. Or if they pulled a Brangelina and did a cover and donated all the money they got to a charity. But I really don't see either of those scenarios happening.
I hope they do stick to their guns and shun all tabloids from getting a glimpse of their baby. Just to prove us all wrong. But who knows what will happen. Guess we're just going to have to sit tight and wait to see how this nail-biter turns out! Only six months to go!
Do you think Kimye will sell their baby photos?
