$620,000 for baby to be body double

LOS ANGELES - One obliviously lucky baby earned her parents US$500,000 (S$620,000) after landing the part of body double for North West, the daughter of reality star Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West.

The celebrity couple held auditions to find a doppelganger for their 13-month-old, The Mirror reported.

They were concerned that North was getting too much attention from the paparazzi and hoped to throw reporters off with the move.

A source told Britain's Grazia magazine: "There were auditions held in Los Angeles at a specialist agency, and in the end, they found a child who is the spitting image of their daughter. They also hired a body-double nanny, who they hope will really throw the paparazzi off the scent."
