It looks like North and Saint West are getting another sibling!
On Wednesday, it was reported that Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have enlisted the help of a surrogate to bring their third child into the world. Such exciting news!
As you surely know, Keeks has had two very intense pregnancies due to a health condition, called placenta accreta. Thus, a third pregnancy for Mrs. West could be life-threatening. Oh man.
We can’t say we’re surprised to learn that Kimye have locked in a surrogate to carry their third kiddo as the KUWTK starlet has openly considered surrogacy in the past. Not to mention, it’s no secret that Yeezus would like another little one running around. And while Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian have both offered to carry Kimmie’s next child, it’s said the Wests have hired a surrogate via an agency — and are paying a pretty penny for it!
According to TMZ, the All Day rapper and the businesswoman were required to put down a deposit of $68,850 with the agency. This appears to not include the $45,000 (paid in 10 monthly installments of $4,500) owed to the woman chosen to bear their baby. Reportedly, if ‘Ye and Kim’s surrogate carries MULTIPLE babies then the person will receive an additional $5,000 per child.
Wait, are we gonna have a West twin situation à la Beyoncé and JAY-Z‘s latest arrivals?? OMG.
Finally, if the surrogate loses any reproductive organs, she will be entitled to an extra $4,000. That’s one chunk of change.
Of course, the hired surrogate is expected to have a pretty pristine uterus as she’s (obviously) required to refrain from smoking, drinking, and drugs during the pregnancy. The unnamed woman is also banned from partaking in sexual activities in the weeks leading up to and after the embryo implantation. She has also been advised to avoid hot tubs or saunas, cat litter, hair dye, caffeine, and raw fish.
And, lastly, the surrogate must agree that Kim and Kanye "assume the legal and parental responsibilities for any child … that may possess any congenital or other abnormalities or defects." Whoa.
This is such an exciting time for the Kardashian-West clan! Congratulations!
