Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly expecting their fourth child and second son in the spring and the baby will be born via surrogate.
If you’ve been “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” then you’ve also been keeping up with their growing family. For instance, you should be aware that Kim Kardashian is about to welcome baby number four and it’s going to be a boy.
News outlets have confirmed that the Kardashian mogul and her husband Kanye West will be welcoming their fourth child in the spring. The baby will be delivered via a surrogate just like their third child, daughter Chicago who was born in January last year. However, the couple won’t be using the same surrogate for their upcoming baby, sources say. Their previous surrogate had just given birth in December.
It’s no secret that Kardashian and West have been wanting to have four kids – 2 boys and 2 girls. They now have two girls – 5-year old North and 11-month-old Chicago. Their only son so far, Saint, is now 3. Luckily for them, they have one more embryo left and it’s a male one so they can finally complete their ideal family of six.
Kim opted for surrogacy for her third child after she suffered from toxaemia (toxins in the blood) and had traumatic labors during her first two pregnancies. Now she is an advocate for surrogacy and gushes about the amazing experience she had with hers.
"I think it was the best decision I ever made. I think it was such an amazing experience. I would recommend it for anyone,” she admitted on her family’s show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
Despite the fear of a lack of bond with Chicago from not carrying her for nine months, she said she instantly connected with her child.
"It's crazy how professional surrogacy is and how instantly, when the baby came out, there was no weird feeling that I was so nervous about.
"Am I gonna connect with the baby? Am I gonna feel the same way as if it's, you know, me birthing my kids? And it was. It was the same exact feeling. So, that was instantly a relief for me cause that was what I was most nervous about and I just feel so lucky that I've had such a good experience with surrogacy.”
Kim appeared hesitant to have another child in October when she expressed her anxiety over the massive school shootings taking place in the country. She swore she would never bring a child into the world again until gun control is in place.
However, this doesn’t seem to be the case today since she’s poised to welcome her first and probably last child in early May.
