Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson finally shared a few cute pictures of their daughter, Alijah! The first, via Instagram, is this adorable shot of everybody’s hands piled up—including big brother Hank IV and, of course, newborn Alijah. But Us Magazine scored the exclusive shots of the faces of the happy family, which you can check out on their website.
Obviously, celebrities have a whole different way of sharing shots of their newborns—no letterpressed announcements or adorable Facebook shots for them! It’s a pretty lucrative business for celebrity parents to release the first photos of their babies exclusively to magazines like People and Us. (The Jolie-Pitts scored the highest fee ever, raking in $15 million for releasing the images of the couple with their twins Knox and Vivienne. Though don’t worry that they were being greedy—they announced that they donated their fee to charities.) In fact, most of the most expensive celebrity photos out there were baby photos.
Personally, I kinda like the adorable Instagram shots that more down-to-earth stars like John Krasinski and Emily Blunt shared. (And Kendra’s cute Instagram shot we have here!)
Tell us: How did you share the first photos of your baby? Did you go with old-school mailed announcements, or Facebook or Instagram? And if you were a celeb, would you consider sharing the first photos of your baby to help you start a really nice college fund for them?
