According to sources that confirmed the news to PEOPLE, Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian will be having a third child via surrogate. The couple have already hired the surrogate too.
Kim has made it clear for awhile on her reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she wants more children but doctors have advised her against it. “I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe,” she explained on the show.
She had suffered from placenta accreta (when the placenta grows into the wall of the womb) in her last pregnancy and the health risks are too high.
“My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails. How disgusting and painful!!!” Kardashian West wrote in her blog when she detailed the condition.
“My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before. My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that—it was the most painful experience of my life! They gave me a second epidural but we were racing against time, so I just had to deal.”
“I can’t carry anymore kids … it’s the worst,” she told close pal Jonathan Cheban. “It’s not going to be happy for me.. I had a full break down … I give up.”
“I’ve come to the conclusion in my mind that I can’t carry another one. So now I want to explore surrogacy,” Kim has said on the show.
Kanye and Kim are parents to a 4-year old daughter named North and an 18-month old son named Saint.
