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.

Not that anyone would pay me for pictures of my kid, but if it were me, I would take the highest bid and put it in a trust fund for the kid. No shame in it.

Does anyone really think this blatant display of sin, immorality and degradation, is going to end well? It's just matter of time.

tired of hearing about them    

I kind of think the screwed themselves. If the do take a higher offer now they look greedy. Not that they aren't, but it would prove the "haters" right. They could say they are giving the money to charity but we" haters" know that won't happen. Just like the value of the wedding gifts that she was supposed to give to charity. Which charity benefited from that?

Of course they are waiting. She's only 3 months. There is plenty of time to wait and decide what kind of offers they want. They even acknowledge they will consider offers in the future.

Clearly she generates interest fro some reason bc her stories ALWAYS have lots of comments. And it's OUR fault for clicking, so I won't even bother reading the "I hate Kim" comments even though you are interested enough to take time to write comments on her stories. Anyways, I will sh it my pants if this girls babies photos sell more than Angelina Jolie. ONE of her babies was FOUR MILLION and Kimye is gonna get more than Brangelina? All of this bc she released a se x tape>? Wow! Look what you can do to be successful in this country!

America truly is an amazing country. All you have to do is make a sex tape where you perform oral sex on a guy and let him pee on you, then have your mom handle distribution rights and residuals. Redo your face, boobs and butt with cosmetic surgery so you look like a brunette Jabba the Hutt in a girdle. Marry a guy to boost ratings, hang out a few months, ditch him, then take up with an obnoxious, universally disliked rapper who writes "songs" calling you a bitch. Get knocked up by balloon-headed rapper while still married to second husband. Oh, and have every minute of your life, with the exception of perhaps your pelvic exams (but there is still time!) filmed for your TV show.

Have your pimp/momager combine, stir, and keep stirring indefinitely. The result: you are widely despised but are also similar to a circus freak, so you still get attention, and you make lots of money because you have no shame, no class, and no soul.

Only in America. I hope aliens don't watch E! And think all Earthlings are like the Kartrashians.

I don't even understand why people care what anyone's kids look like. They all look the same as babies. Who cares?

They could take that money and do something wonderful with it like give it to a charity. But they only care about themselves. Very selfish.
