Kim Kardashian expects to welcome fourth child into the world in 2019
According to sources, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West are expecting their fourth child. Like their daughter Chicago, the child will be born via surrogate.
It has been revealed that Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye are going to expand their family in 2019. The couple shares three kids, Chicago, 1 this month, Saint, 3, and North, 5½, together already.
Kardashian West revealed in August that she loves being a mother. However, sources had revealed that the 38-year-old reality star and the 41-year-old rapper weren’t “in a huge rush” to have more children.
“They have absolutely talked about trying for another baby with the help of a surrogate, but nothing seems decided for sure. Chicago is still little, and they have time.” said an insider last year adding, “They would use the same surrogate if she agrees to help them again. Kim can’t say enough kind words about the surrogate.”
However, another insider negated the comment about their rush. They insisted that Kim and Kanye had already been talking about having baby number 4 and agreed that they would use the same surrogate saying, "They absolutely would use the surrogate again. They love her.”
Kardashian West later revealed in an August interview with E! News that she shared the sentiments of both insiders. She had cryptically mentioned that she was open to the idea.
“I don’t know. I read something that it was, you know — none of that was true. But I’ve been really open about it and talked about it on our show, so I don’t know. We start filming season 16 next week, so if I think about it more and it’s gonna happen, you’ll definitely see it on the show. But as of now, no.” said the starlet.
Kardashian West eventually opened up about her experience with the surrogacy process in May last year. She said it was an overwhelmingly positive experience.
“I would have maybe one more [child]. I really, really enjoyed the surrogacy process. I will say, when it came to the breastfeeding time, I was like, ‘Okay, this is the best decision I ever made.' It’s a game changer, having to not go through [nursing] every few hours. I can spend so much more time with the older kids and getting them used to the baby.” said the soon-to-be mother of four
The couple had used a surrogate for their third child Chicago. After her birth, according to reports, they had one embryo left.
It is now reported that the male embryo has been used by the couple. Sources claim he is due in early May.
Kim had opted for surrogacy after her first two pregnancies were extremely difficult. The star had described them as "disgusting" and "traumatic."
