Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have confirmed that they are welcoming a baby boy via a surrogate.
The news comes after Kanye expressed his love of having a big family on the last episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Kim told her friend, “Kanye wants to have more children. He’s been harassing me. He wants like seven. He’s like stuck on seven.”
TMZ also stated that Kim and Kanye are expecting their fourth child via a leftover male embryo.
The baby is due early May. Their child Chicago was born last January and was also born via a surrogate. It is unsure whether the surrogate is the same one as last time. ”Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister. Love, Kim Kardashian West’
Kim can’t give birth herself because a life-threatening condition called placenta accreta, a condition where the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall. Normally, the placenta should detach itself from the uterine wall after childbirth, but people with this condition part or all of the placenta remains attached. This can cause severe blood loss after delivery.
