Benzino & Althea Baby Zino's Gonna Make Us Big Bucks ... We Think

Benzino and girlfriend Althea Eaton are looking to make a quick buck on the first pictures of their newborn son ... Zino Antonio Scott.

Baby Zino was born on Nov. 10 and we're told the former "Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta" stars have already offered first shots of the kid to several tabloids ... IF they're willing to pay $20k!

The couple's been very coy -- only posting photos of Zino's feet and hands ... leading some fans to think there were complications with the birth. Not to worry, baby's fine -- 5 lbs. 11 oz. -- it's just mom and dad trying to get a bigger payday.
