$620,000 for baby to be body double

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian stroll through rue Darboy in the 11th district near Belleville as they shop on May 21, 2014 in Paris.

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."
