Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly plan to reject an offer of $2.5 million for the first photographs of their son Saint.
The little boy was welcomed into the world on 5 December 2015 and is a brother for the couple’s two-year-old daughter North. It’s been claimed the pair have been inundated with requests from magazine editors, all asking for the debut shots of Saint.
Sources have told TMZ the offers range between $2 million and $2.5 million, although more is required than a simple picture of his face. Instead, the superstar couple are being asked for images of the whole family, including toddler North.
An insider states Kim and Kanye are “almost certain” they will turn down all the offers. This comes as little surprise, as the hip-hop star is notoriously protective of his family. When North was born Kim retreated from public life for weeks, with Kanye eventually choosing her mother Kris Jenner’s ill-feted talk show to reveal the first picture of the baby.
Prior to North’s birth the rapper spoke about his feelings on fatherhood, revealing Kim and his family will always be his priority. “One of the things was to be protective, that I would do anything to protect my child or my child’s mother. As simple as that,” he told New York Times. “Well, I just don’t want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”
North has changed Kanye’s whole outlook on life, as he’s less interested in work than he once was. That doesn’t mean he has achieved all he wants to, rather he realises there is more to him than his job.
“I’ve definitely learned how to compromise more,” he told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres earlier this year (15).
“And I’ve learned how to shut up more. Yeah, I think I’m a better human being because of (Kim), and because of my daughter.
“I always have someone to think about going home to. And, you know, something for me to be brave for what I want to do for humanity, but also to be more protective of myself for my family too.”
