The first pictures of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's baby could bring in millions of dollars, experts predict. The reality star and rapper's baby isn't due until summer, but some experts estimate the magazine that lands the first photos of Kimye's baby could shell out as much as $3 million to get the exclusive first pictures. "The first images of Kim’s baby could sell for as much as $3 million,” the editor-in-chief of an unnamed weekly magazine tells Huffington Post today (Wednesday). “The last time a pregnancy caused this much attention was when Angelina and Brad were expecting twins in 2008,” another insider says of the Jolie-Pitt photos that sold for $14 million.
Kanye West shocked the world, and his "baby mama," when he made the surprise pregnancy announcement during a concert just days ago. Since then, fans of the power couple have been clamoring for details about Kim K and Kanye's baby. Even the first post-announcement pictures of the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star, taken during at a New Year's Eve party, are drawing a lot of attention as fan search for a shot of Kim Kardashian's baby bump. (Check out the video of Kim's bump above.)
But it's not just pictures of the baby that will earn big money, experts say. “Just like she did on her wedding, Kim will be able to make money from TV specials, gifts, baby showers and baby parties," one source reveals. Another sign that Kim and Kanye's baby is likely to bring in six figures is an August 2012 report by the New York Post which claims People magazine paid the E! reality star $2.5 million for exclusive pictures of her wedding to Kris Humphries. Kim has denied the report.
