As usual, the Kardashian West family had to ring in the new year by making headlines, and mission accomplished they did just that. A new baby is heading West!
Kim Kardashian and her (infamous) husband Kanye West are expecting their fourth child via a surrogate. The little one will be joining older siblings Chicago, 1, Saint, 3, and North, 5½ multiple sources have confirmed.
Don’t hold your breath for more of Kim’s maternity style. Remember the curtains she wore to the Met Gala? Well, let’s go with term designer curtains, shall we?
Kanye, who now refers himself as Ye and his wife welcomed their third child, daughter Chicago via a surrogate. Back in August, it had been reported that the couple had one embryo left, a male. The latest addition to the family, supposedly a baby boy is said to be arriving in early May according to an insider.
Another source has revealed that the reality starlet has always wanted four kids. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has always gushed how becoming a mother had changed her life, and she loved every minute of raising her three kids. However, last summer she did say she was in “no rush” to give her kids another sibling.
“They have talked about trying for another baby with the help of a surrogate, but nothing seems decided for sure,” said the source adding of the couple’s then-7-month-old daughter Chicago, who was the only one of their children to be born via gestational surrogate, “Chicago is still little, and they have time.”
The same source further revealed that if given a chance they would opt for the same surrogate as last time. That is if she’d actually agree to have their baby. Kim apparently can’t say enough kind words about the woman who helped bring her daughter into the world.
Another insider opened up to People and said, “Kim and Kanye were already talking about baby number four when their youngest was just a couple of weeks old. They absolutely would use the surrogate again. They love her.”
Kardashian West has been really open about her health problems which resulted in her opting for surrogacy. When asked if she was planning for another Kardashian West baby in an August interview with E! Kim replied, “I am not sure.”
“But I’ve been open about surrogacy and talked about it on our show, so I don’t know,” the KKW Beauty mogul also told the outlet. “We start filming season 16 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians next week, so if I think about it more and it’s going to happen, you’ll definitely see it on the show. But as of now, no.” Ah, the plot thickens! Another storyline for the reality show that feels like has been dragged on for eons.
In October, Kim revealed that her eldest daughter North is a little uncertain about her existing siblings, admitting that her eldest “acts like an only child at all times” and is “a little confused” about her family dynamics. It looks like North has gotten her wish.
