Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Kanye West are said to have turned down a huge $3 million offer for the first exclusive photos of their yet to be born child.
A source told website TMZ that the couple have been “flooded” with lucrative offers from media outlets desperate to be the first to publish the baby pictures.
The huge $3 million offer compares to Brangelina’s $4.1million payout following the birth of their first child Shiloh in 2006. Although that was dwarfed by the $14 million they received after the birth of the twins.
The couple donated the payments to a charitable trust they had set up.
The news of Kim Kardashian’s decision is all the more surprising as unlike other more private stars she has previously shown no interest in hiding any facet of her life from public view.
But perhaps her boyfriend is the one behind the move.
Kanye West, 35, has previously been reported to be uncomfortable with the way Kim Kardashian, 32, lives, with her reality shows, paparazzi attention and self-publicity on her blog combining to put every aspect of her life under constant public scrutiny.
And of course with their combined fortunes the pair have no financial need to accept the cash.
Luckily for KimYe fans they can still get an insight into how the new baby might look, at least according to a top forensic artist.
US forensic artist Joe Mullins studied recent photographs of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and used the latest computer technology to predict how their children might look.
According to Joe Mullins, a baby boy would inherit Kanye West’s nose and face shape and Kim Kardashian’s lips.
A baby girl would take more after her glamorous mother, with deep brown eyes and glossy dark hair.
