Kim Kardashian and Kanye West expecting another daughter via surrogate
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly expecting baby No.3 via their surrogate. On Wednesday (Sep. 06) the couple announced that the surrogate whom they hired to carry their third child is pregnant of a girl.
It was previously revealed the couple had hired an unnamed woman through an agency to carry their baby for $45,000, which would be paid in 10 equal instalments. It was also agreed that the woman would receive an extra $5,000 per child in the event of a multiple pregnancy and an additional $4,000 if she lost reproductive organs in the process.
“The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate,” a source told People magazine.
The unnamed woman was described as an experienced surrogate, who has appeared in a promotional video about the process. Kim has reportedly chosen not to carry her third child after suffering placenta accreta, a potentially life-threatening condition, while she was expecting daughter North and son Saint. She was warned by doctors following her last pregnancy that another could be life-threatening.
The baby girl will join Kim and Kanye’s eldest child, daughter North (4 years old), and son Saint (21 months old). She should come to the world in late January.
