Kim Kardashian expecting baby girl via surrogate
North and Saint are about to get another sibling!
[Updated 7 September 2017] It seems the rumours are true – Us Weekly has reported that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's surrogate is in fact pregnant with the couple's third child and it's a girl! According to the report, the latest addition to the Kimye clan is due in January 2018.
The famous couple have yet to confirm the news themselves but here's hoping. Congratulations!
The Kardashian clan might soon be expanding as reports claim that Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West have hired a surrogate to carry their third child. If you've been keeping up with Kim, you'll know that the reality TV star, who's already mum to North and Saint West, was thinking about having another baby. Due to previous pregnancy complications, she once revealed on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she'd consider surrogacy.
Never one to shy away from the public, Kim has been very open about her pregnancy struggles. While carrying her first child North, she shared about having early-onset preeclampsia and having to induce labour to deliver her daughter. Later, she learned she had "a high-risk condition" called placenta accreta and described it as "the most painful experience of my life." After having surgery to remove scar tissue, she struggled to get pregnant again but with the help of doctors, was able to conceive her son, Saint.
Now, it seems like North and Saint will soon have a new sibling, without risking mum Kim. However, this pregnancy does not come cheap. According to TMZ, Kimye are reportedly paying the surrogate $45,000 (approx. RM192,000) spread out during 10-month installments and have to deposit $68,850 (approx. RM295,000) to the surrogate's agency. In the event the surrogate bears multiple children, she'll receive $5,000 (approx. RM21,000) for each additional child and can also get $4,000 (approx. RM17,150) if she loses her reproductive organs during the pregnancy. The joy of having a third child though = priceless.
Neither Kim nor Kanye's reps have commented on the reports, so we'll just have to stay tuned. Whatever it is, we can't wait to see how the duo make their baby announcement – let the baby name guessing begin!
