Kim Kardashian and Kanye West recently secured a surrogate to have their third child.
That child will join Saint, 18-months, and North, 4. Kim has told fans, at length, how she suffered and hated every moment of being pregnant (some found her frankness refreshing… rather than feeding the usual narrative).
There have been several storylines on Keeping up with the Kardashians where doctors told Kim it’s too dangerous to risk another pregnancy (although, Khloe recently admitted to faking doctor’s office scenes to make her sympathetic to the public while married to Lamar Odom).
Kim’s latest storyline revolves around wanting to have more children and asking her sisters. And now settling on a stranger hired from an agency.
Sources tell this week’s tabloids that Kanye isn’t done making their family. He doesn’t feel complete as a family of four. In fact, PEOPLE sources note: “[Kanye] would want a family of five or six if it was up to him.”
“After having Saint, Kim was told she couldn’t carry another baby — that it would be too dangerous,” adds the source. “And she was okay with that.”
“After both her pregnancy experiences — which no secret, weren’t great for her — she was content with two. But even after having Saint and knowing everything, Kanye was already talking about having more kids,” the source reveals.
“Kim on the other hand definitely needed to give it some time and consideration before even thinking about options for more kids,” admitted the same source.
“But even from the beginning she would make funny comments like, ‘Who knows what will happen … Kanye will probably convince me [to have more kids]!’ ” added the insider, “And she did warm to the idea!”
So why is Kim planning on having another kid with a surrogate, now? Kim “thinks her kids have grown up too fast!” The source explains.
“As Saint got bigger though, she talked more and more about a third baby,” said the source. “She really misses having a baby in the family. They looked for a while before they found the perfect surrogate.”
