Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian is set to make $16m from her pregnancy.
The reality TV star is currently expecting her first child with boyfriend 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.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Kim is in talks with TV execs about filming the run-up to the birth - scans, hospital visits, everything. She could make $16m from the pregnancy alone.
"She's already been bombarded with tons of potential deals to endorse parental products."
Birth might not be filmed
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.
Insiders say Kim and Kanye - who have been dating for eight months - decided to start trying for a baby after spending time with Beyonce and Jay-Z's 11-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
"It was actually Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy, who made them both broody," a source close to the couple insists.
"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."
