Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s surrogate is pregnant with their third child.
According to US Magazine, the 36-year old reality star and husband, Kanye, 40, began looking for a surrogate, and their surrogate, a San Diego mom in her late 20s, referred by an agency is three months along, which means they’ll likely welcome baby No. 3 in January 2018.
The surrogate has reportedly been a surrogate before, even appearing in a promotional video about the process with her own family.
The West’s who are parents to a daughter North, 4, and son Saint, 19 months, have agreed to pay $45,000 in 10 monthly installments of $4,500, according TMZ. In the case of multiples, Kardashian and West will fork over $5,000 per additional child. This is all in addition to the $68,850 deposit given to the agency.
Other stipulations in the contract include standard expectant-mother guidelines:
- no drinking
- no smoking
- no drug use
- no hot tubs or saunas
- no raw fish
- no handling cat litter.
Kim told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in 2014, “I have so many siblings and I love it, they’re my best friends and I would love that for my kids.”
Kim had two pregnancies plagued by placenta accreta, a potentially life-threatening condition, which forced her and Kanye to consider alternative options, rather than enduring another high-risk pregnancy.
