It looks like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be three-time parents early next year.
Kim has been vocal about wanting a third child, but is unable to give birth again due to medical concerns (in fact, she risks death if she tries to carry another child). She's also been vocal about finding a surrogate. Well, according to Us Weekly, Kim and Kanye's surrogate is three months pregnant, and the baby is due in January 2018.
The surrogate is reportedly a San Diego mom in her late 20s, referred by an agency. The woman has also served as a surrogate before, the mag says.
In June, it was reported that the A-list couple had hired a surrogate to carry their third child together. At the time, TMZ reported that a financial deal is in place where the surrogate will pocket $45,000 to carry the child to term. If there are multiples, the surrogate gets $5,000 for each additional kid. There are also strict instructions in place for the surrogate regarding her diet, hair and her sex life (she's even forbidden from handling cat litter or getting in a hot tub.)
Kim and Kanye are already parents to North, 4, and Saint, 19 months. During her pregnancy with Saint, Kim suffered from placenta accreta, which is a condition in which the placenta grows into the wall of the womb and prevents it from easily detaching at the time of birth.
"I'd just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that's safe," she said on her "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" reality show. "And if for some reason I left this earth sooner than I really wanted to, then my kids would have a support system at home so that I know that they would be okay if I wasn't here."
