We're not used to seeing Kim Kardashian and Kanye West turn down large sums of money, but according to a recent report, the couple rejected offers to the tune of $5 million for exclusive first photos of their new baby girl. TMZ claims the reality star and rapper immediately turned down proposed deals because it goes against their "morals."
The duo's main priority is said to be security and safety, so they will wait to release the first picture until the time is right. If the parents stick to their pattern, we won't get a glimpse of the newborn until March. We had to wait two months for a photo of their daughter North — which was initially revealed on Kris Jenner's now-defunct talk show — and son Saint made his public debut on mom Kim's website nearly three months after his birth.

The 37-year-old confirmed that she and Kanye had welcomed their third child via surrogate with a post on Tuesday, Jan. 16, writing, "Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister."
The infant, whose name has yet to be released, was born on Monday, Jan. 15, at 12:47 a.m. She weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces. Khloé Kardashian was the first family member to publicly react to the news, tweeting a few heart emojis following Kim's announcement. The 33-year-old is currently expecting a child — her first — with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
Kylie Jenner, who's also pregnant with baby No. 1, though she has yet to confirm it, reportedly risked being spotted by the paparazzi in order to visit her new niece at the hospital. "Kim was really happy and touched that her youngest sister, who has been dealing with major anxiety over her own pregnancy, was able to set aside her own uncomfortable feelings and come to the hospital to share in this wonderful family memory," an insider told Hollywood Life. Well, whenever Kimye decides to release a photo of their new addition, we'll be ready!
