Magazines such as PEOPLE and OK! are fighting over who gets the first baby photos of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s twins which are expected to fetch a modest $200,000. In comparison, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were paid $14 million for theirs. They donated the money to charity. Mariah and Nick will probably donate theirs to a diamond encrusted Hello Kitty for the baby room.

“Mariah and Nick are more concerned with doing the right thing than going to the highest bidder,” said a source close to the couple. “They’re talking to a number of publications about doing it in the best and most tasteful way. Nick has said on radio he doesn’t feel entirely comfortable selling pictures of his children. But the first picture remains very valuable to the paparazzi.” [Page Six]

If Nick feels uncomfortable selling pictures of his kids, why doesn’t he take pictures himself and post them on their website every single day until people get sick of those two talking about their babies. Sort of like what normal people do. You’d think that would be the best way to devalue the baby photos. Instead, he’s “reluctantly” selling them for $200,000. What a trooper.
