In June, it was reported that Kim K and Kanye West were allegedly searching for a surrogate for their third child. Now it seems that they found the surrogate and she’s pregnant. She is projected to have the baby in January of 2018.
According to People, a source close to the family says, “the entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate.”
Kim hired a surrogate this time around based on the recommendation of her doctor.
“Given her health scares in the past, Kim felt the need to hire a surrogacy agency that helped serve as the liaison in finding a healthy woman who would be a great surrogate option for her and Kanye. Both of them have been super involved in the process,” the source says. “They want everything to be perfect and for the baby to be extremely healthy. They don’t want any complications and Kim is providing an ideal eating regimen and diet so everyone knows what the baby is consuming before it’s born.”
Kim endured high-risk pregnancies with both children, she had preeclampsia with North, which resulted in her being induced at 34 weeks. She also had placenta accrete, where the placenta grows into the muscle of the uterus, a condition doctors say is very serious. After this, doctor’s told Kim no more pregnancies.
“I’ve come to the conclusion in my mind that I can’t carry another one. So now I want to explore surrogacy,” Kardashian West said on her show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Good luck to the Wests. We’re excited to see what the next little one will be like.
