TV star, entrepreneur, socialite, fashion icon – Kim Kardashian plays many a roles effortlessly. However, the one that she speaks about with immense pride is that of being a mother! She has recently revealed that she and Kanye are expecting their fourth child via a surrogate. And guess what? It’s a boy! Now, are we not super excited?!
It’s A Boy
Although there had been news about the couple expecting a baby in the month of May, there were no confirmations per se from the couple. As reported by E!Online, a source has confirmed the news and said, “The surrogate is well into the pregnancy and she is due in May and everything looks good.” But now we know it’s going to be a boy.
Kim revealed the big news on Andy Cohen’s show Watch What Happens Live. While speaking about the pregnancy she revealed, “I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and I told some people. I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk.” A jubilant Kim confirmed it was going to be a boy. Kim was on the show with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe.
The couple had used a surrogate for their third child as well. If you remember, Kim was pretty private about the news of her third child and chose to reveal it only during the hugely popular show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Her pregnancy struggles are well know and documented. They weren’t easy and she had placenta accreta during both her pregnancies, a condition wherein the placenta attaches to the uterine wall, albeit too deeply.
My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails. How disgusting and painful!!! My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before. My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that—it was the most painful experience of my life!Kim Kardashian
Considering that it was medically unsafe for her to deliver another baby, she obviously had to choose surrogacy once again.
A Big, Happy Family
The fourth pregnancy does not really come as a surprise considering that Kim had dropped a hint earlier on Live with Kelly and Ryan. “I would have maybe one more [child],” she said. “I really, really enjoyed the surrogacy process,” Kim had confessed. “I enjoyed the surrogacy process. When it came time to breastfeed, I realized it was the best decision I have made — it’s a game changer. I can spend so much more time with the older kids, getting them used to the new baby,” she had said.
Vogue had reported a source saying, ““Kim and Kanye were already talking about baby No. 4 when Chicago was just a couple of days old. And they absolutely would use the surrogate again. They love her.”
Kim and Kanye are proud parents to baby Chicago, North, 5, and Saint, 3; and if sources are to be believed, Kim always wanted to have four kids. With two boys and two girls, we agree it is indeed going to be one big happy family.
