The Daily Grind Video

The hunt is on for the highest bidder, and Momager Kris Jenner is not playing around when it comes to her future grandbaby’s first photo sale. The word is that Kanye is totally against it, and Kim is somewhere stuck in the middle with her decision. Even though it’s actually not our business what they decide to do, it is going to be interesting to find out which route KimYe takes and of course, get a glimpse of their new baby. Do you think the couple will allow Kris to sell the baby’s pictures, or will they wait and take the authentic path, which is to introduce their child to the world without a dollar sign involved?

The industry of celebrity weeklies and tabloid-style blogs is growing rapidly and in high demand. You can’t go to a grocery store or walk past a newsstand without at least noticing one eye-popping cover. When it comes to magazine sales, exclusive images mean everything! Pregnancy is always a hot topic, but knowing the due date is just a small interest. The big payday is when the contract gets signed and a hefty check is exchanged for a first view of the mini celebrity babyface.

I always do wonder, “what if this baby grows up and doesn’t want to be a public figure? What if this is the beginning of public scrutiny for the rest of the child’s life?” I guess by the age of 18, all of the bargaining money that was given for the exclusive photo will be spent, so what exactly does the child get out of this besides unwanted publicity? Is this a selfish decision?

I am a not going to sit here and go against the entire idea. I did a photo shoot with my son when he was one month old. Sometimes I regret it, but, on the other hand, I was so excited to be a mother, I wanted the world to see him. I guess it really only depends on the way you plan to raise your child moving forward. Growing up in the public eye is very complicated.

Here’s a list of some of the most expensive cover stories of celebrity babies and their A-List parents.

FYI-Angelina and Brad Pitt have made over $19 million dollars total in sold baby pictures..
