Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has joined the ranks of Hollywood celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lopez, whose babies were on the list of the most wanted pictures by American tabloids and celebrity weekly magazines. In fact, there is buzz that a leading tabloid called the National Enquirer wants to get its hands on the first, exclusive pictures of Beti B.
Over the years, it has become a trend for media houses to pay ludicrous amounts of money to capture private moments of celebrity mums with their new-born babies. Needless to say, this is huge publicity for the publication in question, and those quoting the highest price often get exclusive rights to the pictures.
Ash’s pregnancy and delivery made global headlines, what with her being one of the few internationally known Indian celebs, with every leading network picking up the news. The follow-up to the development is a mad rush to bid for her daughter’s pictures and get an exclusive first look. Some tabloids and magazines are even in touch with their Indian counterparts to try and negotiate a deal if there’s any opportunity.
