Have you heard the latest news yet? Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are now expecting another baby via surrogate. Seems like North and Saint are getting a little sibling here.
So, a celebration and congrats are in order!
The surrogate that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian hired is now pregnant with their third child, some sources confirmed to PEOPLE.
“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 tells PEOPLE.
“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 continues, “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.”
The couple were married in May 2014 and now their daughter North is 4 while son Saint is 21 months old.
In the video: Kim Kardashian West is warmed to surrogacy as “she really misses having a baby in the family.”
The source also confirmed to PEOPLE in June that the couple hired a surrogate to help them reach their family goals. During both her previous pregnancies, Kim struggled with placenta accreta and that’s the reason her body couldn’t hold any babies.
“I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe,” the soon-to-be mom of three said on an April episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
She added, “And if for some reason I left this earth sooner than I really wanted to, then my kids would have a support system at home so that I know that they would be okay if I wasn’t here.”
After giving birth to Saint she never wanted to get pregnant again and felt like two kids were enough, according to the source.
“As Saint got bigger though, she talked more and more about a third baby,” the source said, adding, “She thinks her kids have grown up too fast.”
“She really misses having a baby in the family. They looked for a while before they found the perfect surrogate.”
“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!!!” she blogged about her experience in giving birth to North.
“My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before,” Kardashian West continued. “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.”
Even though the baby on the way will be their third child, they are open for another opportunities too. If it was for Kanye, the source reveals, they would have a family of five or six.
“She would make funny comments like, ‘Who knows what will happen … Kanye will probably convince me [to have more kids]!’ ” the source explained of Kardashian West. “And she did warm to the idea!”
