RadarOnline reports that Spears is going to near-unprecedented lengths to ensure that the paparazzi don’t get a shot of Preston– including hiring look-alikes to pose as her– while at the same time, negotiating with tabloids for rights to authorized first-photos. Astute celebrity baby-watchers may note that this tactic was employed by Julia Roberts, who earlier this year, offered exclusive photos of her twins to People, in order to fend off the paparazzi. Although unlike Spears, Roberts didn’t conduct a bidding war.
