Kim Kardashian’s thinking about expanding her empire with a third kid using a surrogate
America doesn’t really have a royal family, but we do have the Kardashians. Much like the British monarchy, the family is large, complicated, and ever-growing. It might be expanding even sooner than anyone thought, since Kim Kardashian says she’s looking into a surrogacy for a third baby. Yes, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian want more kids.
While talking to her mom in an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she said, “So, I’ve just come to the conclusion that I just want to explore surrogacy.” But that’s the only sneak peek viewers get. Who knows how far her plans for more kids go. And, the conversation in question was filmed before her robbery in Paris last month and she’s been pretty shaken up since the incident, so who knows if she’s still considering this “exploration,” as she called it.
Kardashian has been really open about her fertility issues, and before having Saint, she talked about possibly adopting. In the end, she underwent IVF treatment. Her pregnancy with North wasn’t easy either. She told People back in 2015, “I had so many complications. I had this condition called placenta accreta. There were a couple little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again.” So exploring a surrogate makes sense if she really wants more kids.
Not for nothing, Kardashian reportedly hated being pregnant. She wrote on her blog while pregnant with Saint, “I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL! I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it.” Preach, Kim.
Admitting that she wasn’t feeling the total body takeover that some women enjoy was a badass thing to do. And it wasn’t just about being judged for her body, but she had so many complications, it must have been miserable. Kardashian also told C Magazine that if she has placenta accreta again, they might have to remove her uterus, so getting pregnant again is a very big decision for her to make.
But Kardashian and West (especially West) do apparently want a larger family, according to the tabloids and their anonymous sources. In April last year, just four months after she had Saint, Kardashian said on her sister’s show, “Kanye has been mentioning [kids] every single day lately for the past 10 days.” At the time, Kardashian said she wasn’t trying to get pregnant again and Khloé mentioned surrogacy as an option, so it must be something that’s been on Kim’s mind.
A source told People this month, “Kanye would have already been trying for another, but Kim just wanted to get back to feeling like herself again first. But more kids are definitely in the plan.”
Really, though, I just want Kim to come back to Instagram first. It’s been so long.
