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.

Did anyone else notice, this huge frenzy was created just prior to the premiere of their new season beginning? All is strategic, as the shows ratings were plummeting!

Are you serious? Once the PRICE IS RIGHT, those baby pics WILL appear! I'm sure she is waiting for the price to be the HIGHEST of any "star" so far! If J.Lo got $6 MILLION, Kim will want more than that and some rag will pay it!

Brad & Angelina did NOT cash in on this: $4.1 million for Shiloh in 2006. $14 million for their twins in 2008. In each case, they gave those monies to charity, the monies for Shiloh to a local non-profit in the African lcoation where she was born. Shame on you that you distort this by making out they kept those monies for themselves. They used their star-power to raise the $ for those pictures in order to give the monies away.

They aren't holing out. They are pretending to reject all offers so they can buy time. A source close to the family say there is something wrong with the kid, Down's Syndrome, cleft palate.
