It is no longer news that Kim and Kanye West are expecting their third child via a surrogate.What is news, however, is that there are little details now known about the identity of the surrogate mother.
TMZ in a new report claims the surrogate is a married African-American, she is a college graduate who is in her Twenties and has been married for five years and has two kids.
Earlier on, the entertainment news website had reported that the couple, who already have two kids, a daughter North aged four, and a son Saint, who is about two years old, will be having the third child, a baby girl who will be born at the end of January 2018.
Kim and Kanye are said to be very excited as they prepare for the arrival of their baby. Reports first emerged in July that Kim Kardashian had opted to have a surrogate deliver her child due to health complications she had with her two previous pregnancies.
Kim Kardashian West, who had suffered life threatening placenta accreta while pregnant North and Saint, is said to have been assisted by an agency to find the best surrogate. She had been searching for a surrogate for months before she found the best choice.
Sources say the couple paid the sum of $45,000 for the surrogate to carry their third child.
The duo want everything to be as perfect as possible and for the child to be very healthy, without any complications and Kim is said to be providing the ideal eating regimen so she knows what the baby is eating before it is born, an insider said.
The surrogate is not allowed to smoke, drink alcohol or do drugs during the course of the pregnancy. She also is not allowed to use hot tubs, dye her hair or eat raw fish.She will refrain from sexual intercourse in the weeks before the pregnancy and in the weeks during implantation of the embryo.
The payment of the surrogate fee of $45k is reportedly going to be paid in 10 monthly installments of $4,500, while the couple surrogate’s agency will allegedly receive $68,850.
As part of the agreement,TMZ says if the pregnancy produces more than one child, the surrogate will be given an additional $5k per extra child, that is,$5k extra for twins, and $10k extra if she delivers triplets.
Should the child have a congenital abnormality, Kim and Kanye will take full legal and parental responsibility of the child.
Kim who has always wanted a third child suffered life threatening conditions during her previous pregnancies.The condition causes the placenta to attach too deeply in the uterine wall which sometimes causes bleeding during labor.
In one episode of Keeping up with the Kardashian reality show, Kim said she would love nothing more than to have another kid and expand her family.She wants to have a safe world around her at home, so that if she does leave this world sooner than expected her kids will have a good support system at home.
After doctors informed her of the dangers of getting pregnant, she was devastated but finally settled for the option of a surrogate to help fulfill her dreams.
