Kim & Kanye Decide Against Selling Baby Photos to Magazines While Kim’s Popularity Tanks?
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been new parents for months now, but no one has seen any photos of their daughter North West or even seen Kim Kardashian step outside the house since the child’s birth. For several weeks before Kim gave birth, there were numerous conflicting reports on what the couple would do to introduce their daughter to the world, and Kim’s camp even suggested on numerous occasions the reality star could stand to get millions if she and Kanye opted to sell their baby’s photos to the highest bidding magazine. However, there were also reports circulating everywhere that Kanye was completely against it, and he didn’t want his daughter to be some kind of cash cow and magazine seller.
Many weeks after the birth, it now appears Kim and Kanye have made a decision not to sell North West’s photos. In fact, the Kardashian clan tells TMZ they have instead decided to either release the photos for free via social media like Jay Z and Beyonce did for Blue Ivy or to give the photos away to a high-profile magazine that expresses interest.
Interestingly enough, recent reports suggest Kim’s plan to hide out after the baby’s birth in an attempt to increase the public’s excitement and interest in the baby may have backfired. According to Radar Online, the reality star feels she’s not as popular as she was post childbirth and people were more interested in Kate Middleton’s birth.
Ironically, Kate Middleton and Prince William wasted no time in showing off their baby to the world, while Kim figured hiding out would make her an even bigger star. Unfortunately for Kim, she’s not making as many headlines as she was post her hideaway. Not even the usual “Kim and Kanye are secretly getting married story” picked up steam this last time around and that’s usually front page news.
