Saint and North are getting a new sibling! According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West are expecting baby number three, due sometime in January.
The report indicates that the third West scion will be delivered via a surrogate due to Kim's medical complications, specifically placenta accreta, which was exacerbated during her last pregnancy. Sources say that the condition could become deadly if she attempted to carry another baby to term.
The Wests paid a hefty sum for the surrogate: $45k. The surrogate can not drink, smoke, do drugs, eat fish, go in hot tubs, or use hair dye while they carry the child.
“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 said to 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 ... 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 source added.
“I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe,” Kim had said on an April episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, perhaps hinting at what was to come.
Kim and Kanye have previously suggested that this might not be their last baby, either. A source told People that West “would want a family of five or six if it was up to him ... [Kim] would make funny comments like, ‘Who knows what will happen … Kanye will probably convince me [to have more kids]!’"
