Rumors are rife that the third child of Kim Kardashian, 36, and Kayne West, 40, is going to be born through surrogacy. Some say it is a baby girl for the couple this time around: others are hinting that it is going to be twins. The expected due date of the new baby’s birth is slated to be in January next year. Apparently, Kim had grappled with several medical problems during her past pregnancies because of which the couple has now decided to opt for surrogacy.
They took the help of a surrogacy agency to find a healthy woman to be a surrogate mother for their third child.
Surrogacy refers to a kind of pregnancy that entails another woman for carrying the baby of a couple. After the birth of the baby, the surrogate mother has to give up the baby to the benefactors. Usually, the surrogacy option is availed by those who are unable to bear babies. Even same sex couples are known to sign up for this option.
If rumors are to be believed, the surrogate of Kim and Kayne is an African-American married woman. Apparently, the twosome have spent £90,000 for the procedure.
It has also come to the fore that the bearer of their child has been given security. However, it is known to be fairly low-key as Kayne does not want the neighbors to get a whiff that the woman is carrying their child.
During April 2012, Kayne and Kim began dating, which was 6 months after she had a fall out with her then husband Kris Humphries – an NBA player. Her divorce to Humphries, her second husband, came through in June 2013. Her first husband was Damon Thomas.
Their first-born North West was born a fortnight after Kim’s divorce to Humphries was finalized. When North turned eleven months old, the duo got married – the date was May 24, 2014.
Kayne had proposed to Kim at a baseball stadium, the words “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!!” in neon lights were splashed on the score board.
There was a party in Paris and was followed by a wedding ceremony at Fort di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. At the lavish wedding bash, Kim adorned a Givenchy dress, which was designed by Riccardo Tisci. During the day, she changed her attire 4 times.
The first choice for Kayne’s best man was Jay Z – his fellow rapper. But, Jay Z did not comply after which John Legend was given the responsibility.
On June 15, 2017, North became 4 years old. The name of their second child, a son, is Saint, who was conceived on Dec 5, 2015, and is now 1-year old.
Kim revealed that she could ‘bleed to death’ if she bore another child and stated this to be the reason for them to go the surrogate way.
There is much speculation about the names that Kim and Kayne are going to keep for their newborns. Where the names of their first 2 children are concerned, they are rather distinctive. It remains to be seen whether their babies are going to be named beginning with ‘K’ or not. On an episode of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’, Kim said that she was keen on names starting with ‘K’ because hers and Kayne’s begin with ‘K’ and then they would be called as ‘KKKs’.
