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.

They're waiting to see if their spawn is photogenic or horrid first. Can't commit to a lot of dough and then have to publish unsightly kid. Think of worst features of each one. Ugh. And there's a chance they're trying to look "saintly," especially since Kin still has an actual husband, and it's not Mr. West. I was thinking what his mother would have had to say about all this mess. And it's a mess, even though the press and society acts like it's totally normal for someone's wife to get knocked up by another man and then parade around several continents as they she's the queen of England.

I swear these celebs infants eyes hasn't even opened all the way to see the world but they wanna slap them on the front of a magazine for a new summer home. Knowing their tacky ass they'll probably be the next thirst buckets to put a price tag on their baby. Hopefully they'll follow in Kanye's good friends Bey & Jay footsteps and turn it down for that sanctity of their child.... hopefully.

Uh    

A wide load driven by a mongoloid. I can see where the baby pictures would be entertaining. Any zoo should pay top dollar.

Who are they kidding. They are already pimping out this kid. No way they won't take any money they can get.


That's all they are about is money.

Of course she did. She has all the money in the world but she is going to sell the pics. She's trying to get more money that's all

Sounds like damage control to me. I'm sure if the right offer came along they would take it.
