Let The Madness Begin: First Photos of Kimye’s Unborn Baby Are Estimated To Be Worth A Cool Million

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?

    Really who cares Kim and her mom are money hungry so they will sell the pics sad but true


    I am calling on person’s in my Facebook community to exercise restraint and moderation with regard to commentary about Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and their still unborn baby. The words in that song “a child is born” is so familiar to us and should speak volumes to each of us. You will remember that many folks in the media as well as those in academia no less used the birth of Blue Ivy Carter to roll her father over the coals for his presumed sexism as a rapper, and no one bothered to wonder whether he was a feminist in private life. I will also remind you that Abraham Lincoln got a full pass for despising slavery in private but supporting the institution in public. Now I am not arguing that the private opinion of a public figure matters because it does not, but I do think that those of us who operate in the world of the mind have a higher responsibility than our colleagues in the media, and I was particularly disturbed by so many people with university affiliation no less who exploited their position, irresponsibility I assert, to engage in trash talk about Jay-Z, especially those fathers of daughters who shamelessly used phony feminism to cleanse themselves of their own and their group’s social guilt. The Delivery Room is a very special place, and it takes a very hardened individual to come out of the Delivery Room exactly as they were went in. I am willing to hope that the experience of parenting along with time and still unknown contingencies will help transform K&K into better citizens who will mature and grow to use their vast combined resources for good. After all, they have more time to grow than the three months that the American historian, Eric Foner wrongly believes it took Abraham Lincoln to magically transform from a President who encouraged Afro-Americans to seriously consider self-deportation to the Great Emancipator that he became in American mythology. Unlike Abe, Kayne and Kim are still both young, and were never possessed the racist conservative Whig credentials that their nineteenth century counterpoint of the growth thesis were in possession of, and, historically, we have placed our bets on worse.

    I use to think selling baby photos were kind of tacky until Jessica Alba made the argument for Jay and Beyonce. Paparazzi will go to very dangerous lengths to capture an image of this child, as they do a lot of celebrity children. For the safety of this baby and the Parents they’ve have to release a photo to deflate the hype. Whether they decide to sell it or give it away for free is their business, but the last thing you want is to be dipping in and out of traffic at 90+ mph with your newborn in tow just to avoid the public.

    I am actually surprised. Given that the baby will be half black. But I am sure grandmama Kris is all over that
