Four-year-old North and 21-month-old Saint have a younger sibling on the way: according to People, sources have confirmed that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s hired surrogate is pregnant with the couple’s third child. Said the source:
The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate. 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.
The Wests supposedly paid $45,000 USD for the surrogate, who — naturally — “is prohibited from smoking, drinking or doing drugs during the pregnancy.” Hot tubs, hair dye and raw fish are also an apparent no-go.
Baby West is due to be welcomed into the world sometime this upcoming January.
