Kim Kardashian welcomed her third child, Chicago, on January 15 2018 via surrogate – and one publication is claiming the star’s surrogate is having the couple’s fourth child, too.
US Weekly has reported that Kim, 38, and Kanye, 41, used the same surrogate who carried their daughter Chicago and had one more fertilised embryo left so will welcome a baby boy in May.
Discussing her future family plans in a recent episode of KUWTK, Kim divulged: “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.”
And speaking to E! News last year, Kim said four children would be her ideal number, adding: “I don’t think I could handle more than that.”
GLAMOUR has contacted a spokesperson for the couple and will update you when we hear more.
It seems like just yesterday that little Chi came into the world. Announcing the news on her website at the time, Kim exclaimed: “SHE’S HERE!”
“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” she wrote.
“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.”
“North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”
A little more about the woman who carried Kim’s child was revealed after she was introduced to the family on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
On the season 14 finale, La’Reina Haynes made her on-screen debut two months after giving birth to Kim and Kanye’s third child. While her face wasn’t shown on screen, she did speak to the family about how special it was – and she’s giving us all the feels. Kris thanked La’Reina for the gesture, to which she responded:
“Thank you. I’m so proud of doing it in general.
“Like, with all the women who do have pregnancy issues, that put so much trust in people like me. It’s amazing. It’s already a big deal.”
Kim Kardashian wants another surrogate, but what is it really like to carry another woman’s baby and then give it away?
When asked if she found it difficult to carry another couple’s baby, she explained,
“I like being pregnant. I know it sounds really weird,
“The pregnancy itself, you know, it just feels natural, like I’m supposed to do it. Because I know from the very beginning this is not my baby. And at the end, my joy and my satisfaction is with whoever I’m having the baby for,
“I know what my job is in all of it. It makes me feel important because I’m like, ‘Wow, I did something so good.’ This is beautiful. I would do this again a thousand more times.”
Being a surrogate is an amazing thing, but carrying the baby of pop culture royalty doesn’t come without a monetary reward.
It’s believed the couple agreed to pay $45,000 in 10 monthly instalments of $4,500, according to a TMZ report. This is an addition to the $68,850 deposit given to the agency.
Kim was told by doctors that she wouldn’t be able to survive another natural birth and admitted that she “begged” younger sister Khloe to be her surrogate.
Luckily for Kim, she found someone to give her the family of her dreams.
