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.

The only reason is because Kanye is a little more private. If it was Kim and Kris Humphries, aka Herman Munster, she would have sold delivery room pictures for sure!!

I see a payout over the past few years of over 30 million for pics of celebrities' babies...And with the economy and job situation as it is,I wonder how many employees of these magazines could still be working? How many Hungry babies could be Fed,We have become a backwards society!

Maybe they are not making a deal because there is really no baby? Just a publicity stunt

What sucks is I think hes got a very controlling side to him and I think hes making very single decision. She aint in charge of $h/it now. She will be his little b!tch. I recall an episode on keeping p with the kardashians and she was getting rid of clothes cuz Kanye said they were not right. WTF , who the hell is he?? a pos thats who

AND seems like MOMager wont have 4h/it to say either. She lost all her controll when Kanyee got in the picture. Hes making every decision. Kims gonna do every single thing he tells her to do. I have always thought of him as a controlling mean person. So the abuse starts. The family will end up very worried about Kim

Looks like Kanye is in the driver's seat in this relationship. Kris must be foaming at the mouth.
