Kim Kardashian is only three months pregnant, but already there is talk about how much money she and Kanye West will make for the first images of their baby.
A source told British newspaper the Sun, “Kim is in talks with TV execs about filming the run-up to the birth -- scans, hospital visits, everything.
"She could make £10million [$16 million] from the pregnancy alone.”
Other people involved in the entertainment industry disagreed with this amount for the first images of their baby.
Though the images of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s twins in 2008 sold for $14 million, magazines are not selling as well as they were four to five years ago.
“The first images of Kim’s baby could sell for as much as $3 million,” an editor-in-chief of a weekly told the Huffington Post. But Kardashian and West can still make a fortune.
“But just like she did on her wedding, Kim will be able to make money from TV specials, gifts, baby showers and baby parties,” the source went on to say.
Meanwhile, Kardashian recently discussed her pregnancy. While she said her sister, Kourtney, has had two easy pregnancies she admitted that being pregnant is not as simple as she once thought.
“I wouldn’t say it’s been easy,” Kim Kardashian told ET online on New Year’s Eve.
“When people say that pregnancy is fun and they love it I would have to disagree. Even my sister [Kourtney Kardashian] has made it look easy, but it’s not as easy as people think.
"It’s a little painful, there’s a lot of growing pains. I heard it’s all worth it so I’m looking forward to that,” she added.
While West was performing at Revel in Atlantic City, N.J., on Sunday night, he made the pregnancy announcement. West stopped in the middle of rapping and told the audience of 5,000 fans to “make noise for my baby mama right here.”
