Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Are Expecting Their Third Child Via Surrogate
The Kardashian West family is set to grow once again! Kim and Kanye are set to become parents for the third time via a surrogate who is reportedly due with their baby in early January!
A source close to the family told said the surrogate that was hired by the family in June is indeed pregnant – with a GIRL!
“This was always the plan. After the complications with the other pregnancies they knew they wanted to go the surrogacy route for the next baby,” the source says. “They took their time finding the right woman to carry their baby and of course they are being very hands-on during this process.”
Kim has made no secret of how hard pregnancy was for her and although she was desperate to carry her own child for the third time, doctors advised her against it. The mother of two had very difficult pregnancies with both her 4-year-old daughter, North, and her 1-year-old son, Saint (photo below).
“It’s something that has been in the works for a bit now,” the source continued. “There was always a very high risk if Kim became pregnant with a third baby, so it was never really an option. They are excited to finally add to their family.”
It’s rumoured Kim and Kanye agreed to pay the surrogate 10 monthly installments of $4,500, totaling $45,000. If there are multiple children, the surrogate will get $5,000 for each additional baby, and if the surrogate loses reproductive organs, she gets $4,000. Kim and Kanye were also required to pay a whopping deposit of $68,850 with the agency they used to find their surrogate.
The celebrity couple don’t plan on revealing the surrogate’s identity as they want her to be able to enjoy her anonymity.
“They are going to make sure she has her privacy and whatever she needs,” the source says.
Kim hasn’t made any wild demands on her surrogate other than ensuring she stay healthy for their baby. Aside from refraining from smoking, drinking and drugs during the pregnancy, the surrogate also agreed to restrict sexual activities in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy, and also can’t use hot tubs or saunas, handle or change cat litter, apply hair dye, drink more than one caffeinated beverage per day or eat raw fish.
Congratulations to the happy couple who are no doubt over the moon with this happy news!
