Kanye and Kim Kardashian West are officially expanding their brood!
The parents of North and Saint have a third child on the way, via surrogate confirms the family.
“The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate,” a source tells People.
“Given her health scares in the past, Kim felt the need to hire a surrogacy agency that helped serve as the liaison in finding a healthy woman who would be a great surrogate option for her and Kanye. Both of them have been super involved in the process.”
“They want everything to be perfect and for the baby to be extremely healthy. They don’t want any complications and Kim is providing an ideal eating regimen and diet so everyone knows what the baby is consuming before it’s born,” the source continued.
The little boy or girl is due in January 2018.
In August the 36-year-old hinted that another baby was on the way.
“I hope so,” she replied when The Hollywood Reporter asked whether another baby was on the way. "We’re definitely trying. We are hoping so.”
In the new interview, Kardashian addressed her surrogacy plans for the first time. “There have been a lot of things said and Kanye and I have not confirmed anything."
Following the birth of Saint, Kim spoke candidly on Keeping Up With the Kardashians about wanting another baby, however, the reality TV star had been diagnosed with placenta accreta, which meant a third pregnancy would pose an extremely high risk to her health.
"I can’t carry anymore kids … it’s the worst," she said on the show. "It’s not going to be happy for me.. I had a full break down … I give up."
"So now I want to explore surrogacy."
Congratulations Kim and Kanye!
