Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Expecting Their Fourth Child Via Surrogate
Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West are expecting their fourth child via surrogate this year. The baby boy is reportedly due in May and is being carried by a different surrogate to the one they used for their third child 11 month old daughter Chicago.
According to People Magazine a source close to the couple said that the surrogate for the couple’s fourth baby is a different woman. “Since they had another embryo, Kim and Kanye always knew they wanted to try and implant that embryo, too,” the source told People. “They hoped to work with the same gestational carrier, but it didn’t work out the first time. They are working with a second carrier now that is pregnant and will give birth in the spring.”
Its been rumoured that a different carrier has been used this time as there were issues regarding sensitive information being released to the public as well as rumours she’s apparently pregnant with her own child.
Kim, 38, spoke about using a surrogate during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians where she outlined her health issues during pregnancy, including preeclampsia and placenta accreta. She said: “Kanye wants to have more. He’s been harassing me. He wants like seven. He’s like stuck on seven. Seven kids is crazy. I could never, especially in like the world we live in.I’ve been kinda hesitant about having more kids because it literally keeps me up at night, thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this.” Kim revealed she wanted just four children saying: “I don’t think I could handle more than that.”
It’s rumoured that their eldest child North has been very vocal about having a new sibling this year. The mother-of-three opened up about her daughter wanting a baby brother in October, when she spoke with Ashley Graham for her podcast.
“North acts like an only child at all times. I think she’s a little confused,” said Kardashian West. “She’s beyond jealousy now. She’s just like, ‘It’s my world.'”
She said: “She said to me the other day, ‘Mom… we just need to have another baby brother so that Saint can just leave me alone… so the girls can be on this side of the house and the boys can be on that side of the house.'”
It seems that having two boys and two girls had “always been the plan” for the family. “They’ve always talked about wanting four kids: two boys and two girls,” a source told People. “They definitely want a boy.”
