Kim Kardashian has always been vocal about her desire for a big family. And now, the Kardashian-West household is about to grow!
In June, the hubs Kanye West began sourcing for a surrogate, and a source now tells Us Weekly they have cause to celebrate – their surrogate is already 3 months pregnant! Which means they’ll probably be welcoming baby No. 3 in January 2018.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and rapper, 40, are in experienced hands, as the woman has reportedly served as a surrogate before and has even appeared in a promotional video about the process with her own family. The Kardashian-Wests have agreed to pay their surrogate $45,000 (approximately RM190k) in 10 monthly installments of $4,500 (approximately RM20k), according to a TMZ report.
In the case of multiples, Kardashian and West will fork over $5,000 per additional child. This is all in addition to the whopping $68,850 (approximately RM290k) deposit given to the agency. Other terms in the contract focus on the surrogate’s wellness habits, including the standard expecting-momma guidelines like no drinking, smoking or drug use, no hot tubs or saunas, no raw fish; and no handling cat litter.
Kim Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres back in 2014 that “I have so many siblings and I love it, they’re my best friends and I would love that for my kids.” But with two pregnancies plagued by placenta accreta – a potentially life-threatening condition – have forced her and West to consider surrogacy, rather than enduring another high-risk situation.
