The whole world is waiting for baby North West’s picture.
However, since giving birth to her first child on June 15, Kim Kardashian hasn’t even been seen in public, let alone given any small glimpse of her bundle of joy – except in those fake photos she sent out.
According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West have reached a decision and rejected a lucrative seven-figure magazine offer to instead follow the lead of close pals Jay Z and Beyoncé – by releasing the first pic themselves through social media.
It had been reported that Kim Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner had been close to closing a deal worth as much as $4 million – the profits from which were said to be being donated to charity.
However, TMZ reports that a high-end publication, such as Vanity Fair, may still be in the running.
Just three days after welcoming baby daughter North West, US News first reported that Kanye West was dead against the idea of “pimping out” his child.
Kanye West, 36, is said to be staunchly opposed to reality TV shows such as the one that made his “baby mama” a household name, calling them “demeaning”.
Although he’s previously made several appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kanye West insists he won’t be returning due to the backlash he received.
As reported by US News, Jo Piazza, author of Celebrity Inc: How Famous People Make Money, says: “[Kanye West] furiously does not want these pictures sold to the world. He doesn’t like the idea of pimping his child, even though he is quite good at pimping out himself.”
This isn’t the first time the couple has chosen not to reap the monetary benefits when it comes to their child.
On December 30, Kanye West made the announcement that 32-year-old Kim Kardashian was expecting live onstage during his concert in Atlantic City.
Now it is expected that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will make a similarly spontaneous move with the photos of their first child.
