10 mil for baby pics? COME ON!
Maybe this is just me...I thought that when people had babies they generally WANTED to show them off to the public hence all those cute little birth announcements. So why is it that when celebs have children they profit off providing pics of their newborns? Photogs will get pictures of the kids eventually (unless, of course, their crazy parents lock them in the house FOREVER) so why pay bucko bucks for them right away?
The public makes having a baby look like something that only celebrities can do. I understand people's fascination to a point...I am kind of curious to see the off-spring of two gorgeous human beings too. But it's not worth 10 million bucks! And then there is always the possibility, God forbid, that something could go wrong and the child could be deformed in some way or even not-survive. What then? You wouldn't dare make a spectacle of a deformed child for the benefit of selling a few magazines would you? The sad thing is...we probably would.
