Kim Kardashian and Kanye West want a large family, but Kim is done being pregnant. People has confirmed that the power couple are paying a surrogate to carry their third child. TMZ says they’re paying $100,000 for this highly personal service. Surrogacy use is fairly common among celebrities, although not everyone is very public about this type of family planning choice. Jimmy Fallon is one celeb who opened up about the fertility struggle that led him and his wife to choose surrogacy.
Kim Kardashian had a difficult time during her two pregnancies and has even been warned by doctors about the health risks of trying for a third because she developed placenta accreta during her pregnancy with Saint. The doctor had to reach in her uterus and scrape the placenta away with his fingernails, which Kim described as the most painful experience of her life.
Even before that harrowing birth experience, she wrote candidly on her website about how much she hates being pregnant. “I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL,” she wrote.
“I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it. My mom and Kourtney clearly did! More power to them but I just don’t relate!”
Although it surrogacy wasn’t confirmed on the Kardashians’ E reality show, Kim has been very open about discussing the possibility. “I’ve come to the conclusion in my mind that I can’t carry another one. So now I want to explore surrogacy,” she told her mom Kris.
