Kim Kardashian was very open about her struggle to get pregnant during the most recent season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”.
Now, TMZ and People are reporting that Kim and Kanye West have hired a surrogate to help the couple have another child. ET Canada have reached out to Kim’s reps for confirmation but have yet to hear back.
Kim struggles with placenta accreta, where her placenta does not detach itself from her uteran wall during childbirth, a complication that is life-threatening.
According to TMZ, the couple have paid a total of $45,000, to be made in 10 $4,500 monthly instalments. If the surrogate carries multiples for the couple, the surrogate will receive an additional $5,000 per child. If the surrogate loses her reproductive organs during the pregnancy, she will be paid an additional $4,000.
There are some restrictions for the surrogate: no smoking, drinking, or drugs while pregnant. She must also restrict her sexual activities before and after the embryo implantation.
The couple are already parents to four-year-old daughter North and 18-month-old son Saint. “I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe,” Kim said on this season of “KUWTK“.
