TMZ reported that the couple have rejected deals ranging from just above a million dollars up to a massive $5 million for the exclusive photos as it would “violate their morals”.
The publication claims that sources told them the offers were never even entertained as “security and safety” of their family is the most important thing right now, leading them to want to release photos when they are “comfortable the safety of the baby is secured”.
The couple – who welcomed a baby girl via a surrogate on Monday – waited two months to share debut snaps of both North, four, and Saint, two, with the world.
Kardashian announced the safe arrival of the 7lb 6oz baby girl with a statement on her website.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s star wrote: “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 couple used a surrogate to have their third child due to Kardashian’s placenta accereta, a life-threatening condition that caused serious complications in her labour with Saint.
The use of a surrogate mother was confirmed in an episode of the reality show, with Kardashian revealing that the pregnancy was harder than carrying her own child because she had not been in control.
The identity of the surrogate is unknown but a bizarre fan theory suggests that Kardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner could have been the mystery woman.
