The pics were taken on July 8, 1960, outside Fox Studios in New York, and they belonged to the star’s friend Frieda Hull, reports the Daily Mail.
Frieda kept hold of the colour slides until she died in 2014 aged 83, and the pics were then sold at auction last year to Frieda’s neighbour Tony Michaels, for $2,240, as the collectors were not aware of their true significance.

Who Was The Father?
Marilyn, who died in 1962, had three miscarriages before losing this baby, Tony tells the publication.
But he also claims the baby didn’t belong to the star’s husband Arthur Miller!
“Frieda was very proud of those slides and she was very proud to keep them a secret until the day she died,” Tony says.
“But she told me the story behind them, that Marilyn got pregnant by [actor] Yves Montand. She told me the story of how Arthur got called away and Yves Montand’s wife got called away and they stayed together in a Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow and they had an affair.”
Montand, who died in 1991, later admitted to having a fling with the blonde bombshell.
Marilyn Lost The Baby
Not long after the pics of Marilyn were taken, she ended up in hospital for exhaustion, but Tony claims Frieda believed the actress had a nervous breakdown and she lost her baby.
“All she told me was that Marilyn has lost the baby, it was never made clear whether that was by way of a miscarriage or even an abortion, and I never thought to press her on it,” Tony adds.
“It wasn’t a guess or a presumption, it was something she knew for sure, she was very close to Marilyn. As far as she was concerned Marilyn was pregnant in the summer of 1960 and the slides prove it.”
“She was a brutally honest person.”
Frieda Was Loyal To Marilyn To The End
Before Frieda died, Tony asked her whether she would sell the pics, but he says she flatly refused.
“I suggested she sell the slides and all her other memorabilia so she could afford a better place to live, but again she refused, she said she would never sell out on her friend of ten years Marilyn,” he adds.
“Frieda worshipped Marilyn, she loved her. She wouldn’t give up anything after she died.”
