In the last couple of months, several baby rumors have been circulating around multiple members of the Kardashian clan. Among them, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West excitedly confirmed that the surrogate they hired is pregnant.
Kim and Kanye currently have a 4-year-old named North West and a 1-year-old named Saint West. They are expecting their third child in January.
The decision to hire a surrogate was in part due to the health complications that Kim experienced during her second pregnancy. The reality star said that going this route has actually been very difficult for them, as it is a different feeling than carrying a child herself.
She told People, “You know, it is really different. Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong. I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control.”
Regardless, the couple is hopeful for a smooth remainder of the pregnancy and is excited to meet their little one at the turn of the new year. Additionally, Kim accidentally revealed the gender of her third child.
While being interviewed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the 37-year-old let the secret slip. She revealed that she is having a girl while talking about her 4-year-old daughter North.
Kim said, “My daughter thinks she’s really tricky. We had a baby shower over the weekend, and I thought, ‘You know, I really do want to have a baby shower because I want her to feel that something’s coming and for her to really understand it.’ So people brought toys and gifts and she was opening them all up the next day. She said, ‘Mom, since baby sister’s not here, I think I need all of the toys in my room and I’ll play with them and just make sure they’re all OK for baby sister.'”
Ellen responded by pointing out the fact that Kim had said “baby sister” and thus revealed the gender of her child. Kim responded with a shrug and a laugh.
Congrats to the happy couple on their growing family! Share your congrats on Facebook. In breaking news, a TV host just passed away from cancer at the age of 64.
