The Most Expensive Baby Photos: Will Beyoncé’s Baby Break The Records?

The Most Expensive Baby Photos: Will Beyoncé's Baby Break The Records?

With reports coming out today that Blue Ivy Carter – the first child of R&B royal couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z – left Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, the world awaits the first baby photo! Reportedly, the family-of-three dodged photographers during their departure earlier this morning. But like lions circling their prey, the paparazzi will be on the hunt for the first image of baby Blue.

Will the paps get the first shot? If so, will the image sell for six figures? Seven figures? Will the Knowles-Carters debut their baby girl on the cover of a magazine and follow in the footsteps of fellow A-listers Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?

Read on about the top ten most expensive baby photos.

With a reported combined net worth of more than $700 million, the first images of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s baby could be worth big bucks! “If it’s the picture everyone wants, which is Beyoncé and Jay-Z together with their baby enjoying her for the first time, and it’s exclusive, it could be well over $100,000 for first rights in the U.S., and up to half a million for global rights depending on how long it’s exclusive,” says Gary Morgan, CEO of Splash News, to USA Today.

Here’s a list of top 10 most expensive baby photos to date.

  1. $11+ million – Knox Leon & Vivienne Marcheline (Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie)
  2. $6 million – Max & Emme Muñiz (Jennifer Lopez/Marc Anthony)
  3. $4.1 million – Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt (Brad Pitt /Angelina Jolie)
  4. $3 million – Levi Alves McConaughey (Matthew McConaughey/Camila Alves)
  5. $2 million – Dannielynn Birkhead (Anna Nicole Smith/Larry Birkhead)
  6. $2 million – Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt (Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt)
  7. $1.5 million – Max Liron Bratman (Christina Aguilera/Jordan Bratman)
  8. $1.5 million – Honor Marie Warren (Jessica Alba/Cash Warren)
  9. $1 million – Harlow Winter Kate Madden (Nicole Richie/Joel Madden)
  10. $1 million – Maddie Briann Aldridge (Jamie Lynn Spears/Casey Aldridge)
  • Honorable mention: Sean Preston Federline (Britney Spears/Kevin Federline) $500,000
  • Unknown: Louis Bardo Bullock (Sandra Bullock)

    Why do people hate B and J so much. Just be happy for them and not hating. What has she done to any of you, you don’t even know her as a person, just her music. Get a life people.

    I hope not. I have never been more annoyed by a celebrity birth + postpartum period. Enough already.

    celebs have been selling pics of their babies to magazines for over 70 years it’s nothing new. the first celeb baby pic to make over a million dolloars for publishing in a magazine was one of an 8.5 months old Claire Newman in the February 1966 issue of Life. Unlikely B & Jay will touch what the Jolie Pitt Twins got if they sell pics which is unlikely. I can see them instead doing what Mariah & Nick did and setting up a website where when the pics are used the proceeds go to charity

    Of course she’s gonna break the record. They’re not gonna let anyone have their cover for less than the current most expensive one. I hope im wrong though.

    It’s rumoured that they are turning down all offers from magazines. People mag apparently offered $14m. They didn’t want to sell their wedding pictures, I seriously doubt that they’ll sell their child’s pictures.

    I think she will sell the pictures of her baby as apparently she wouldn’t let anyone on her floor and not even to let parents of extremely sick babies visit as the NICU was on her floor. Honestly I didn’t have a problem with this couple but now they totally disgust me, what if one of those sick babies died and she wouldn’t let them be there for the child. Just makes me so angry. Just so no one would take pictures. BEYONCE YOU ARE NOT ROYALTY.

    We’ll see Blue when they are ready for us to see Blue. I think it’ll be like Alicia Keys’ son. The paparazzi will finally get lucky and snap a pic during an outing, putting in or taking out of the car.

    omg get out of here. The most annoying Celebrity pregnancy ever. i still think it was fake, no one’s pregnant belly squishes like that when you sit. COME ON!! And why would they even get so much money if nobody really cares. The only reason we cared was because she faked her pregnancy. And she probally going to send private picture to make us think it’s recent pictures. I DON”T HATE BEYONCE (fans) the facts are what they are!!!!!!

    @3:43 IF YOU PAY ATTENTION TO THE VIDEO AND NOT WHAT THE MEDIA WANTED YOU TO THINK/BELIEVE THEN YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN/NOTICE THAT IT WAS MOST CERTAINLY THE DRESS THAT SHE WORE, NOT HER BELLY FOLDING. BEFORE SHE EVEN BEGAIN TO SIT YOU COULD SEE HOW BIG THE DRESS WAS ON HER AND WHERE IT BEGIN TO FOLD BEFORE SHE EVEN SAT DOWN. STOP HATING ON HER OR BELIEVING ALL THIS NEGATIVE TALKS ABOUT THIS COUPLE.
