To clarify, the '16m' in the title refers to the amount of money Kim's pregnancy is set to net her, not that she's undergoing a gestational period akin to that of an elephant.
The reality TV/home movie star is currently expecting her first child with Kanye West and she is already said to be in talks with TV bosses about filming everything to do with her pregnancy as well as becoming the face of lots of mother-to-be and baby products. Because that's what bringing a new life into the world is all about when you're in possession of no talent and a massive arse.
A source told The Sun: "Kim is in talks with TV execs about filming the run-up to the birth - scans, hospital visits, everything. She could make $16million from the pregnancy alone. She's already been bombarded with tons of potential deals to endorse parental products." And let's not forget the boost of interest in her sex tape since she announced the 'news'. Which is a bit kreepy.
However, it is unsure whether Kim will allow the TV cameras to film her giving birth like her sister Kourtney did when she had her children, Mason, three, and six-month-old Penelope. There will be some negotiations with Kris Jenner no doubt.
Insiders say Kim and Kanye - who have been dating for a whole eight months - decided to start trying for a baby after spending time with Beyonce and Jay-Z's 11-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy. Because "spending time with" a baby is totally the same as being responsible for another human being for the rest of your lives.
One said: "It was actually Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy, who made them both broody. And despite reports Beyonce and Kim do not get on, she was one of the first to congratulate Kim and Kanye and is going to be invited to the mother of all baby showers in New York."
