Kim Kardashian and Kanye West using new surrogate for fourth baby as one who carried Chicago was unavailable
'Keeping Up with The Kardashians' star Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West are hoping for baby number 4 via surrogacy
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly using a new surrogate to carry their fourth baby. According to reports, the couple's previous surrogate who was responsible for carrying their daughter Chicago was unavailable as she is having her own baby.
As reported by TMZ, the couple had one more fertilized embryo left after their previous child and through the surrogacy they are expecting a baby boy in May 2019.
Sources close to the pair shared that the couple was fond of their first surrogate, but since she was having her own baby she could not carry theirs. It is reported that the pair hired a new woman to carry baby number 4. Kim and Kanye are also parents to 5-year-old North, 3-year-old Saint.
The couple has previously opened up about their family planning and the number of kids they want.
On an episode of 'Keeping Up with The Kardashians', Kim shared, "Kanye wants to have more. He's been harassing me. He wants seven. He's stuck on seven. [Seven] crazy. I could never, especially in like the world we live in. I've been kinda hesitant about having more kids because it literally keeps me up at night, thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this."
Last year in May, Kim spoke to Elle about her first experience of surrogacy and said, "The control is hard at the beginning. Once you let that go, it's the best experience. I would recommend surrogacy for anybody."
That same month, Kim spoke to PEOPLE and said, "I would have maybe one more. I really, really enjoyed the surrogacy process. I will say, when it came to the breastfeeding time, I was like, 'Okay, this is the best decision I ever made'. It’s a game changer, having to not go through every few hours. I can spend so much more time with the older kids and getting them used to the baby."
Kim had chosen to keep the identity of the surrogate hidden though fans were able to catch a glimpse of the woman named Lorena during the last season of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'. In her earlier pregnancies, Kim has suffered from many health issues such as preeclampsia, which causes high blood pressure. On 'KUWTK', she shared that doctors had advised her against having another natural pregnancy.
The reality TV star shared, "Kanye and I have always talked about having more kids, but I’ve gone through so much with really bad deliveries that the doctors don’t feel like it’s safe for me to carry my own babies... But getting a surrogate and finding someone that you really trust really is so much more difficult of a situation than you could really could imagine...You have to make sure that their lifestyle is healthy, they have to go through psychological testing. But I think everything happens for a reason because the surrogate that I really love got approved."
