The Kardashian–West clan is about to expand.
It won't be too long now until North and Saint have a new sibling. Kim and Kanye's surrogate is reportedly about five months pregnant, meaning we can all expect a new addition to the family late this year or early next year. The couple chose a woman in her twenties from San Diego through an agency, reports Us Weekly. (FYI, here are the crazy costs associated with going the surrogate route.)
People magazine has since confirmed the news and an unnamed source opened up about how the couple is dealing with the process. "The entire family is over the moon," the source said. "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."
In case you haven't been ~keeping up~with Kim's fertility saga, the couple's decision to hire a surrogate didn't come easy. Two doctors warned Kim that a third pregnancy would be risky since she had suffered from a condition called preeclampsia during her first two pregnancies. But she was still reluctant at first.
"My bond with my kids is so strong. I think my biggest fear is that if I had a surrogate, would I love them the same? That's the main thing I keep thinking about," Kim said on KUWTK about her desire to carry a third child herself.
Kim even underwent a risky and painful procedure to repair a hole in her uterus in an attempt to get pregnant, but it was unsuccessful. Kim has shared in the past that a large family is important to her, so it's clear she eventually got over her surrogacy hang-ups to make a third child possible.
We're officially a few months out from the birth of baby number three. That means it's time to start placing bets on what unusual name the couple will go with this time.
