Following her placenta accreta diagnosis

Anyone who watches Keeping Up With the Kardashians knows that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are keen on having a third child.

However, Kim has placenta accreta, which is a condition which would make another pregnancy life-threatening. It occurs when blood vessels grow too deep into the uterine wall which makes the placenta able to invade those muscles and grow through the wall.

According to reports, Kim and Kanye have found a woman to act as their surrogate for $113,000.

The pair are apparently required to deposit around $68,000 to the agency and they will pay in monthly instalments. The contract will require that the surrogate refrains from any alcohol or drug consumption throughout the pregnancy and also abstain from sex leading up to the pregnancy.

This all comes after Kim has openly talked about wanting more children - even undergoing surgery to try to repair the hole in her uterus - and she even asked her younger sister, Khloe, if she would consider being her surrogate, for her.

Kim had even said on the show: ''I think that I always knew that surrogacy was an option but I didn't think it was that realistic of an option. Now I feel like that's my reality. I feel like surrogacy is really the only other option for me.'
