The Kardashian klan isn't exactly known for saying "no" to cash money, so it's a little surprising (and...dare we say...heartening??) to find out that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West turned down millions of dollars for pictures of their baby, North West.

TMZ reports that the couple has been offered as much as $3 million for the photos, but that they decided not to take it. The gossip site notes that they toyed with the idea of donating the money to charity, but then decided against that as well for reasons that are slightly unclear (just spitballing here, but perhaps a charity could use the money...)

The Huffington Post reports that sources closest to the couple say that they will debut North in one of two ways: a Vanity Fair spread, or a snapshot uploaded to social media.

Kim Kardashian did issue a statement in July about how much she loves being a mom, and Kris Jenner did a debuting-the-baby fakeout on her talk show. So far, no one has seen hide nor hair of the real North West.
