Kim & Kanye

REJECT Brangelina-Sized

Payday for Baby Pics

EXCLUSIVE

0106_kim_kardashian_composite2PREPARE TO BE SHOCKED ... unlike other celebs, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West turned down a chance to rake in some serious coin off their unborn child ... rejecting a $3 million tabloid offer for the baby's first pics.

Sources close to K&K tell TMZ ... the couple has been flooded with lucrative deals from magazines clamoring to score baby Kimye's coveted first photos, with offers ranging as high as several million. We're told the $3 million offer was from an overseas tabloid.

So far, no cigar. Our sources say the couple has no plans to sell the pics to ANYONE ... right now.

We're told they're aware public demand will only increase over time -- and still might consider offers in the future.

It's a pretty surprising move nonetheless, considering it's become S.O.P. in Hollywood to cash in post-baby-birth ...

-- Brad & Angelina: $4.1 million for Shiloh in 2006. $14 million for their twins in 2008.
-- J.Lo & Marc Anthony: $6 million for their twins.
-- Matthew McConaughey: $3 million for his son.
-- Christina Aguilera: $1.5 million for her baby.
-- Jessica Alba: $1.5 million ... the list goes on.

As TMZ first reported ... Kim and Kanye also nixed the idea of their baby guest starring on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" -- except while he/she is in Kim's belly.

I hate how easy it is for these people to make money. My dying wish is that America will get its priorities in order and start looking up to good people.

Those two are obviously holding up for more dough.

As soon as they can get more money than J-Lo and Skeletor got, they'll sign those pics away, zero doubt about it.

No one wants to see ugly mixed babies. It doesn't get much more disgusting than that. Only solace id take from this is if the niglet was born retarded

It'll be too weird if the kid is fug!
(But that guarantees Krust won't be able to pimp it out so much.)
Is it possible for them to wait too long to deal for the pix and then find less interest and $$$ for them?
I think they should lock down today's highest bidder!
People are already tired of this whole thing, and it just started, lol.
Kim's on minute 14:50 of her fame as it is!!!
