The Kardashian-West Clan Will Grow By One In 2019!
We’re only two days into 2019, and we’ve already got some big celebrity news! Well, alleged celebrity news, since it hasn’t been confirmed yet. But sources close to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are spilling the beans! The couple is supposedly expecting their fourth child in 2019, via surrogate. Kim and Kanye have been very open about wanting another child after daughter Chicago was born in January 2018. But no one was expecting another one so soon! The new Kardashian-West baby will join big sisters North and Chicago and big brother Saint. The baby, due in May, is allegedly a boy. Two of each – can’t beat that!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West used a surrogate for daughter Chicago, too.
Kim carried and delivered both North and Saint. But pregnancy complications made another pregnancy very risky for the business mogul and reality TV star. Last year, Kim opened up to Elle about what she went through. She experienced placenta accreta during both deliveries. Kim says, “After giving birth, your placenta is supposed to come out. But mine was stuck. That’s what women usually die from in childbirth—you hemorrhage and bleed to death and they can’t stop it. To get it out—it’s so disgusting—the doctor had to stick his whole arm in me and scrape it off. It was the most painful.” Doctors told her that carrying a pregnancy to term again would be incredibly risky, and suggested a surrogate for their third child.
But Kim wasn’t totally on-board initially.
She was resistant to the idea of using a gestational carrier. Kim says, “I hated being pregnant. But as much as I hated it, I still wished I could have done it on my own. The control is hard at the beginning. Once you let that go, it’s the best experience. I would recommend surrogacy for anybody.”
The couple has always wanted a big family, and had one final embryo stored after Chicago was born. But they also say that a fourth child would be their last. There are no details about who the surrogate is, and as we mentioned, no one in the Kardashian family has actually confirmed the news. But come May, we’ll see if a little boy joins the family!
So (maybe) congrats to Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and the whole family! Last year, Kardashian babies came in threes (Kylie and Khloe both also welcomed daughters in 2018). So let the imaginary bump watch begin.
