Hot on the heels of the announcement of royal baby number three’s impending arrival at Kensington Palace, pop culture royalty – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – are also apparently expecting a much wanted third bub early next year. It seems that three is the magic number, right now!
“Over the moon”
Kim and Kanye are already parents to 4-year-old daughter North and almost-2-year old son Saint and more details have emerged about the next addition to their very high profile family.
People Magazine confirmed a January due date overnight, via the ubiquitous ‘close source’. They also revealed that Kim and Kanye are closely involved in their surrogate’s pregnancy – and that the family could not be more excited about this new little baby West.
“The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate,” People Magazine reports.
“Given her health scares in the past, Kim felt the need to hire a surrogacy agency that helped serve as the liaison in finding a healthy woman who would be a great surrogate option for her and Kanye. Both of them have been super involved in the process. They want everything to be perfect and for the baby to be extremely healthy. They don’t want any complications and Kim is providing an ideal eating regimen and diet so everyone knows what the baby is consuming before it’s born.”
Whispers of Kanye and Kim’s surrogate pregnancy began several weeks ago, and no doubt fans of the pair will be delighted to get further details and confirmation on what to expect and when to expect it!
Viewers of the family’s reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, will know that the couple have been keen for another baby since Saint’s arrival. They’ve spoken openly about the medical issues that mean Kim can’t carry another baby safely and have also talked about surrogacy as an option, on the show. (Kim suffered from preeclampsia and placenta accreta with both North and Saint.)
Keen fans may also remember Khloe Kardashian had offered to be her sister’s surrogate, but when Khloe discovered she potentially had some fertility issues, the pair began looking outside the family for help.
It remains to be seen what young North West will make of a future sibling. Kim recently admitted that North was NOT a fan of her toddler brother Saint.
“She does not like her brother and it’s so hard for me,” Kim said recently. “I thought it was okay, [it would last] a couple of months, she’s just warming up to [having a baby in the house]. She would get so jealous when I would breastfeed and all that kind of stuff. The phase isn’t going away!”
We look forward to hearing more about this already much-loved (and very famous) baby!
