It appears there is a baby boom in the Kardashian-Jenner family. Kim Kardashian is expecting a third child thanks to surrogacy. Khloe Kardashian and her NBA player boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, are getting ready to welcome their first child. Plus, Kylie Jenner reportedly is about to welcome a bundle of joy with her rapper boyfriend, Travis Scott. Let's run through everything we know so far about the Kardashian and Jenner pregnancies, starting with Mrs. Kanye West.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
On season 13 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian announced she wanted to have a third child with her rapper husband, Kanye West. The 36-year-old reality television personality experienced extreme complications in her two pregnancies with her daughter, North West, and her son, Saint West. In fact, Kardashian needed surgeries after giving birth, and after everything was said and done, her doctor said she could not carry a third child.
So, Kim Kardashian began exploring surrogacy as a workaround. At first, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian considered being the surrogate. On KUWTK, Khloe Kardashian went with Kim Kardashian to a doctor's office (where Khloe Kardashian inadvertently revealed that she faked trying to get pregnant with her ex-husband, Lamar Odom). Moreover, Kris Jenner's doctor told the 61-year-old matriarch of the family she could still carry a baby, so she would have offered to be the surrogate if she could have guaranteed a safe pregnancy.
In the end, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly went through a surrogacy agency. The fee they supposedly paid was expensive but pretty standard for surrogacy in the United States. Similarly, the contract set forth standard regulations for the surrogate and included monetary bonuses for twins.
Now the news is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's surrogate is pregnant and doing well. However, breaking reports say the paparazzi identified the surrogate and tracked her down. A similar situation happened to Sarah Jessica Parker when she and Mathew Broderick hired a surrogate to grow their family, and SJP made it sound like that aspect was a nightmare. Hopefully, the paparazzi will give the newly pregnant couple--and their surrogate--a break.
