Mrs. Carter: How is this for a surprise?
If you had guessed two years ago that Kim Kardashian would not be selling a picture of her first child to a magazine for a million-plus dollars, the response would have been like this: “bwahahahaha.” She was never someone to say no to a photo opportunity, and her business thrived on it. If nothing else, she would have published the photo, and then given the proceeds from it to charity. Any publicity is good publicity sometimes for reality stars, even if they receive criticism in the process that they are exploiting their children for “this” or “that” reason.
Now times have changed. Kim has become more private ever since beginning her relationship with Kanye West, and the photo attached to this article was not shared in any tabloid at all. Instead, Kim decided to merely post the image on her Twitter account. This goes along with the video below from Kris Jenner’s talk show today, where Kanye West explains that they thought it would also be cool to showcase the child on her season finale. (Our biggest surprise here is that Kanye came across as a perfectly nice and relatively normal person through the interview, and made no over-the-top comments about how amazing he is.)
Kim has yet to make any sort of grand reveal yet of her post-baby body, and this could be something that appears in a magazine down the road as something she wants to promote; after all, this is much more about herself than it is about her child. We had questions about whether or not she would also do it on Jenner’s show last month, but that has not come to pass.
