Reality star Kim Kardashian gave birth to her first daughter with rap star Kanye West Saturday, five weeks earlier than her due date. The high profile couple has been a favorite of the tabloids since they began dating in May 2012.
As of now the celebrity pair has yet to reveal any baby pictures or the baby’s name. Not shy of making her life public or cashing in on private moments many are now speculating how much the baby pictures are worth and who will be the first to publish them.
It seems every gossip magazine wants their cover to feature the latest news on Hollywood. From weddings, divorce to baby photos… which leads me to my next question, which celebrity has got the highest pay out for their baby pictures?
It’s no surprise that Hollywood A-Listers Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie take the cake in winning the most expensive baby photos.
Their twins Knox and Vivienne were born in 2008 and the price for the double Jolie-Pitt snaps was a whopping $11 million from People and Hello. The couple reportedly gave that money to their charity, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
Jennifer Lopez and former husband Marc Anthony also sold photos of their twins to People in March of 2008 for an impressive price tag of $6 million.
The Hollywood heart throb who is rarely seen with a shirt on Mathew McConaughey sold pictures of his son Levi, born in 2008, to OK magazine for $3 million.
The celebrity baby photo is a huge money making machine, as tabloids bid for the right of the exclusive shots that invite us into the private world of the stars we so admire from a distance. No doubt we’ll be seeing Kim and Kanye’s new baby on magazine stands in no time.
The question remains, which mag will have the honor of the exclusive first photo and at what price tag?
