Record $4 million bid scoops Angelina Jolie’s baby pictures


As many predicted, People Magazine has secured the exclusive rights to the first pictures of Shiloh, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s baby. The price? According to the NY Post it exceeds $4 million, which would set a new record for celebrity baby pictures.

The money however will go, the new parents have promised, to children’s charities. The sale, according to The Post, involved a long week-end of negotiating. The pictures were taken by the Getty Agency, who summoned various picture editors to their New York offices. Reported one picture editor: “We were sequestered in separate offices. The photos were shown to us around 10 pm to midnight and then we had to submit bids by 6 am Sunday morning.

No-one got any sleep. It was a manic game of phone tag.”

What made it even sweatier was the offices, the bidders reported, were not air conditioned and it was a hot sultry weekend in New York.

The photographs taken in Namibia, where the baby was born last week, and rushed to New York are described as “very intimate, casual and not Hollywood glitz”. The pictures will, it is expected, be on the cover of a special celebrity baby issue which People magazine is rushing out this coming week. It will include pictures of other celebrities’ babies born lately.

People is predicting it will sell at least a million copies. The charities that will benefit from the auction of the pictures have not been identified but are expected to be charities devoted to children’s welfare. In a statement after the sale was over Brad Pitt and his wife said; “While we celebrate the joy of the birth of our daughter we recognize that two million babies born every year in the developing world die the first day of their lives.” These children, the statement went on, could be saved but only if governments around the world make it a priority.

    Celebrities have to be admired, they get their babies working before their babies can even talk.

    What makes you think that africans are animals? They are humans just like you and believe it or not, they probably don’t have to lock their doors at night and protect their kids from pedophiles. I’d say it’s more animalistic over here than it is there. The fact that they want to help anyone is commendable. Many people should take their example to heart.

    cheater and slut.
    what a great example for their baby.

    i wonder what they would tell their girl how slutty mommy and horny daddy met and conceived her with poor selfish lust.

    I think what Angelina does and what she stands for is admirable. At least she doesn’t try and get on every TV programme like Jennifer to hold onto her celebrity status. I feel very sorry for Jennifer because she is basically nothing without Brad lets face it who gave two shits about her before she hooked up with him. All her movies are flopz and everytime she acts all you can see is “dippy rachel” from Friends. VERY SAD. On the other hand I love the way Angelina isn’t caught up in all the hollywood dramaz and scandels and keeps it real! She is a very caring person and most of all genuine, when she saved Zahara she didn’t go on Oprah and parade and praise herself she just get’s on with it. Now I know why Brad left that pathetic money hungry bitch for someone more down to earth.Love yah Ange, congrats on your new life with Brad and Shiloh you certainly deserve it.

    To Anastacia – one more note about getting her baby to work, how many celebs do you know actually put good use to the unwanted paparazzi, let’s face it they will forever be in your face to get those pix out to the world because everyone wants too see them I for one did. So what’s a better way than putting it towards charity?? That’s a classy move, and who are we to question in which charity she wants to give too?? CHARITY is CHARITY she is still trying her best to make a difference in the world. Would it be better if she just gave the pictures up like some other celebs we know?? ask yourself that.
