Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly rejected a $4 million offer to unveil their baby by an Australian news outlet to boost Kris Jenner's new talk show.
Jenner, who is Kardashian's mother and manager, launched her very first talk show "Kris" in July and reports claim the Kardashian matriarch has been urging Kardashian, 32, and West, 36, to unveil baby North on her show for weeks. The rapper reportedly agreed and gave Jenner the first photo exclusive in a recent show taping that is to air on Friday.
"Just left the @KrisJennerShow and @kanyewest was there today! He was so open and blessed us with baby North's photo!" tweeted one audience member.
West reportedly got teary-eyed while showcasing the first photo of his newborn daughter on the "Kris" show. The baby, who has been nicknamed Nori, is reportedly pictured lying on a comforter while dressed in a "very expensive" onesie, according to RadarOnline.com.
"She looks like kanye she has his cheeks and she is almost as dark as him and she has big eyes like Kim... toocute," another tweet read.
An Australian news outlet was reportedly willing to pay a substantial amount of money for publishing rights to first photos of the Hollywood couple's daughter however they decided to put family first and give baby Nori's grandmother the photo exclusive. Critics are anticipating that Friday's airing of the "Kris" show will likely be a ratings winner.
"[Kanye] and Kris are family he likes her a lot and has mad respect for her. He'd be willing to do her show with his baby," a source told HollywoodLife.com before the show taping adding "They're family at the end of the day and family comes first."
Although the "New Slaves" rapper was in good spirits during the taping of the unveiling of baby North's first photo, sources claim it took a lot of convincing on Jenner's part to get his approval. Initially West was reportedly against the idea of appearing on the "Kris" show.
"Kris and Kanye are not on the greatest terms right now. She is basically driving him nuts with all of her obsession about having baby North on her show," a source said previously. "Kim is just trying to ignore all the drama and stay focused on North."
