'I always knew surrogacy was an option - now it’s my reality'

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly expecting their third child with a surrogate who is said to be three months pregnant.

The 36-year-old who already has two children with her rapper husband, four-year-old North and 19-month-old Saint, suffered complications during her previous two pregnancies.

Kim was diagnosed with placenta accretion during both pregnancies, a life threatening condition that can cause haemorrhaging during labour. She was therefore told that the risks were too high for her to get pregnant for a third time and was recommended to look for a surrogate, something she spoke about on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

'If the two doctors that I trust have told me it wouldn't be safe for me to get pregnant again, I have to listen to that,' she explained. 'I can’t carry anymore kids - it’s the worst. I give up.'

She continued: 'I always knew surrogacy was an option - now it’s my reality. Whatever is meant to be will be.'

Kim revealed that following the news of her health complications, both her sisters Kourtney and Khloe and her close friend Chrissy Teigen stepped up and offered to be her surrogate, but according to reports, Kim's surrogacy has been arranged through an agency.

In fact, according to TMZ, the couple are shelling out a whopping £87,228 for a surrogacy deal, promising to pay more in the off chance that there is more than one baby.

We can't wait to see the fifth member of the Kardashian-West family.
