Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Surrogate is Reportedly Three Months Pregnant
Not too long ago Kim Kardashian West shared that her and husband, Kanye West, were looking for a surrogate for baby number three. Now, it has been reported that the Wests have a reason to celebrate because their surrogate is three months pregnant!
According to US Weekly, a source tells the entertainment magazine that their surrogate – a San Diego mom in her late 20’s – is three months pregnant and is expected to give birth January 2018. Referred to the famous family by an agency, the woman has reportedly served as a surrogate before – US Weekly reports the woman even appears in a promotional video about the process with her own family.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and the Chicago rapper have agreed to pay $45,000 in 10 monthly installments of $4,500, an extra $5,000 for each additional child, and $4,000 if the surrogate loses reproductive organs. The couple was also required to pay $68,850 to the agency. According to TMZ, the surrogate is required to refrain from smoking, drinking, and drugs during the pregnancy. She is also expected to restrict sexual activities in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy, including refraining from sexual intercourse for three weeks following embryo implantation. The surrogate must forgo the usage of hot tubs or saunas, refrain from handling or changing cat litter, applying hair dye, drinking more than one caffeinated beverage per day, and eating raw fish.
During her first pregnancy with North in 2013, Kardashian suffered from preeclampsia, a serious condition characterized by high blood pressure, swelling, and a restriction of blood flow, as well as placenta accreta, a condition in which the placenta remains attached to the uterus rather than coming out after giving birth. After undergoing two surgeries, Kardashian was able to conceive Saint but also suffered from placenta accreta while giving birth.
Back in March, Kardashian shared that she planned to undergo surgery that could possible help her conceive a third child. “Having more kids is definitely going to be a struggle. I’ve gone through so much with really bad deliveries that the doctors don’t feel like it’s safe for me to conceive again myself,” Kardashian said. “This surgery is really the one last thing I can try.”
Unfortunately the surgery to repair her uterus was not successful –which led the Wests to exploring the possibility of surrogacy.
