Seven month after welcoming their daughter Chicago, the celebrity couples are planning on having a fourth child.
A source revealed: “[They] have one last embryo left,” adding that the sex is male.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 37, and the Grammy winner, 41, plan to have the embryo implanted in a gestational carrier “soon,” a second insider tells Us.
This is not the first time the celebrity couples are turning to surrogacy. After Kim suffered high-risk pregnancies with daughter North, 5, and son Saint, 2, due to preeclampsia and placenta accreta, they hired a gestational carrier for Chicago.
Three days after the birth of Chicago, Kim disclosed on her website that it wasn’t safe for her to birth a child herself.
“Doctors said that it wasn’t safe for me — or the baby’s — health to carry on my own.
“After exploring many options, Kanye and I decided to use a gestational carrier. Although I have used the term surrogate in the past, a gestational carrier is actually the technical term for a woman who carries a baby that she has no biological relationship to. A traditional surrogate donates her egg, is artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm and then carries the baby to term. Since we implanted my fertilized egg in our gestational carrier, our baby is biologically mine and Kanye’s.”
Kim has always expressed her desired to have a big family. However, she told Elle in April that she’ll likely draw the line after baby number 4.
“My time is spread really thin. And I think it’s important that in all couples, the mom gives the husband as much attention as the kids.”
It is still unknown if Kimye will be making use of thr same carrier or a new one.
