Kim Kardashian is reported to be a mere 13 weeks into her pregnancy with the “golden child” and appraisals on the worth of the baby’s first photographs are already hitting the Internet. Multiple industry insiders shared with RumorFix that Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s baby pictures could score the couple a little over $1 million. How does one go about appraising the value of something such as a baby photo, you ask? By analyzing the amounts paid to other celebrities for photographs of their children and then comparing the “hot-meter” measurements of those celeb parents to the parents in question, of course.
“Shiloh Nouvel, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s first biological child, fetched $4.1 million dollars from People and I think about $500,000 for Jessica Simpson’s baby … so maybe $800,000 to over a million for Kimye’s kid. That’s probably where negotiations will start,” shared a journalist from a popular celebrity magazine who asked to remain anonymous due to their publication’s possible negotiations for photos of the Kimye offspring.
“A People set up may be worth a million dollars easy,” an additional source shared with RumorFix.
It sounds insane that Kim’s pregnancy was announced not even one week ago and her baby already has a price tag. But, I suppose that’s just how things work when you’re rich and famous and of course, your mother is a media-hungry momager.
It has also been estimated that if some lucky photographer can manage to secretly snap a photo of the kid, they could make out with at least $100,000, although the chances of that happening are highly unlikely.
Another industry insider suggests that $1 million is chump change to Kanye and Kim and that they may opt out of selling their baby’s photographs altogether. Let’s hope they take the “Blue Ivy Carter” route and protect their kid from media exploitation, which is a possibility since it is already being said the couple has chosen to ban their child from reality television.
Are you at all interested in seeing what the Kimye baby will look like or are you completely over it already?
