Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are hoping to expand their family. As we learned on Keeping Up With The Kardashians earlier this year, while Kim and Kanye did want to try for baby number three, Kim was informed by the doctors that another pregnancy wouldn't be safe for her.
The solution? The couple has hired a surrogate to carry their third child, TMZ reports. Kim and Kanye reportedly found the surrogate through an agency, and will be paying the unidentified woman a grand total of $45,000 in ten monthly installments of $4,500. If there are multiple babies, the surrogate gets an additional $5,000 per child; losing reproductive organs would mean another $4k.
As part of the deal, the surrogate is required to forego any activities that may endanger the pregnancy — for instance, no smoking, drinking alcohol, or anything else pregnant women are usually warned against doing. She must also abstain from sexual activities in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy, and cannot have sexual intercourse for three weeks after the embryo is implanted. These are basic rules that just about any surrogate would be expected to follow.
At present time, Kim hasn't confirmed the news on any of her social media accounts, but who knows? Maybe they're just saving it for a future episode of KUWTK.
