What's it like using a surrogate? According to Kim Kardashian, it ain't easy, but she's grateful all the same.
On yesterday's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the KKW Beauty founder opened up about the process of having someone else carry her third child with Kanye West, E! News reports. Having had difficult pregnancies in the past, Kim was advised by her doctors not to carry any more children; luckily, she and Kanye were still able to expand their family via a surrogate, which is something Kim says she's extremely grateful for.
"The fact that this is just what we can do these days, I'm like really thankful," she shared. "Like I'm seriously so grateful for her and that someone is just so like selfless and kind to do this. And I definitely want to keep it private. I don't want people to find my surrogate. Like I don't want them to harass her. Like she doesn't know how to handle stuff like that, this isn't her world."
Kim carried both of her other children, North and Saint West, herself, so trying something completely new for her 3rd child has taken some adjustment, she explained.
"It is frustrating like to not be able to do it on your own," Kim said. "It is a weird dynamic. Like I go to all the doctor's appointments and I try to be really present, but when you're not carrying it yourself it is such a fine balance of how much you're going to be in their lives."
"Of course I want to know ever last detail that's going on with my baby and that's super frustrating, but I really trust my surrogate and I don't want to be that person that's trying to control her every move," she continued. "It's going to be a long hard process but I'm going to take it one day at a time and hopefully it just gets easier."
The reality TV star confirmed surrogacy rumors earlier this year, calling the process of using a surrogate "so much harder" than traditional pregnancy.
"You know, it is really different," she explained. "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."
