Blac Chyna And Rob Are Set To Earn Major Cash For Their First Baby Pic, But There’s A Catch
They'll be ROLLING in it - as long as they follow the rules.
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian’s relationship spiralled so quickly from ‘possible publicity stunt’ to ‘soon to be husband and wife‘ to ‘officially expecting a CHILD together’ that we just can’t keep up.
And while we’re sure the pair are all kinds of delighted to be welcoming a new baby soon, the fact that they’re set to make a pretty massive wad of cash from their first family photo must be adding to all that pre-birth excitement.
According to TMZ, Blac and Rob will be able to command a seven-figure sum for exclusive rights to the first photo of their baby, with the going rate currently at around $1m (€900,000).
Of course, it won’t just be a matter of snapping a quick iPhone picture and sending it out. For that kind of money, TMZ adds that the pair will be expected to deliver “a sappy interview” and “candid home photos with a sprinkle of Kardashian secrets.”

Rob’s big sisters Kim and Kourtney avoided going down the magazine-deal road when they welcomed the most recent additions to their brood. Kourtney simply posted the first photos of her 18-month-old Reign on her personal Instagram page, while Kim shared a photo of Saint via her app, social media and website without any paywall.
But while the majority of the Kardashian clan have avoided selling on their baby photos, other celebrities have jumped at the chance.
Brad Pitt and Angelina reportedly took home between $11m and $15m from People and Hello! for the first photos of their twins Knox and Vivienne in 2008, after accepting $4m for the first snaps of Shiloh in 2006.
As for J-Lo, she apparently earned a massive $6m in photo fees after the birth of her twins Emme and Maximilian in 2008.
Turns out celeb pregnancies are an expensive business…
