Much as some may frown upon the practice, first exclusive photos of celebrity babies is a hot and common practice which commands a ridiculous amount of cash. One baby can make mad bank — but when twins are expected — the sky’s the limit.
Rumors are spreading that there’s a massive bidding war erupting over Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s new additions to the family. Both People and OK! magazine are reportedly going at it and raising the bar into the double-digits for exclusive shots of the twins. From the article,
“A spokesman for People says, ‘We’d love to see the photos in People. We wish the family well’. Meanwhile, OK!’s representative admits the publication would be ‘foolish’ not to bid for the photos.”
Current numbers are estimated at around $15 million — which would mean a lot of dough for the various charities that Pitt and Angelina support; assuming, of course, that they follow a similar path of charity as with the sale of photos for their first biological child, Shiloh.
