Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have turned down millions of dollars for exclusive photos of their newborn daughter.
The couple, who is already parents to eldest daughter North, four, and Saint, two, welcomed their third child in the early hours of Monday (15Jan18). And according to editors at TMZ, Kim and Kanye have already fielded requests worth up to $5 million for photos of their little girl, claiming that such deals would “violate their morals.”
The couple, who married in 2014, have rejected money from news outlets vying for the first pictures, having resolved to prioritize “the safety and security” of their family. Their newfound desire for privacy comes in the wake of Kim’s terrifying ordeal at the hand of jewelry thieves in Paris. The reality star was robbed of $10 million worth of bling at gunpoint in 2016.
Previously, the superstar parents waited two months before posting the first pictures of both North and Saint, and TMZ adds that they plan to release photos of their newborn “on their own timetable.”
Kim, 37, and Kanye, 40, have yet to announce the name of the baby, who was born via a surrogate mother. The news outlet reported that Kim was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with her daughter, and she announced news of the birth in a post on her app on Tuesday (16Jan18).
The mom of three turned to surrogacy after struggling with life-threatening fertility issues throughout her previous pregnancies, and told her followers that she and rapper Kanye “are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give.”
