Thirty-seven-year-old reality star Kim Kardashian West and her 40-year-old husband, rapper Kanye West are expecting their third baby via a surrogate. The baby is due around Christmas and the surrogate mother was pictured as she showed off her pregnant belly. Although her identity is still unknown, Kim has opened up about her relationship with the women who will give birth to her third child on The Real reality show. The KKW BEAUTY founder explained, among other things, that the surrogate wasn’t aware she was carrying their baby at first.

Kim explained in the interview: “She didn’t know at the beginning. She didn’t know. You could do it totally anonymously. You could go that route. And I just felt like, whoever is carrying my baby, what if they weren’t a fan of me or my husband? What if they didn’t want to be carrying our baby? I wanted to give them that choice, and be proud and on the same page. I wanted a relationship with her.”
The businesswoman insists the mystery woman was “really excited” when she eventually discovered who the parents of the baby would be.

Speaking on The Real, she said: “She was really excited. She was someone who had watched the show – not like a super fan, that it would have been uncomfortable – but she’d seen my struggle and seen how open I was about it, so she was really proud to do it.”

Kim had always been open about her relationship with the surrogate mother. She previously claimed that she believes she chose the “perfect” woman to carry her baby. The reality television star also added that she has the “best relationship” with her:
“I love her. I have the best relationship with my surrogate. She’s so nice. She is the perfect person to do this for my family. She’s great. She’s been amazing.”

Despite the fact that she is pleased to have her as a surrogate, Kim revealed something else as well. The 37-year-old claims that she is finding the process “so much harder” than being pregnant herself.

She recently: “You know, it is really different. Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong. I think it is so much harder to go through it this way because you are not really in control. And, you know, obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a good bond and relationship with, but it is still… knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not, you know, my baby now, it’s hard for me. So, it’s definitely a harder experience than I anticipated just in the control area.”
Kim had two difficult deliveries, and doctors advised her not to try for another baby the natural way.
