According to Us Weekly, the couple hired a surrogate to carry their third child after doctors warned Kim about the health risks of carrying another baby. The surrogate is now three months along in her pregnancy.
According to a source, the woman carrying Kim and Kanye's third baby is "a San Diego mom in her late 20s, referred by an agency." The parents of two agreed to pay the woman $45,000 in 10 monthly installments and a $68,850 deposit to the agency.
As Kardashian has discussed in the past, her desire to grow their family was put into question when doctors warned her of the dangers of carrying another baby after she suffered placenta accreta during her last pregnancy.
“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," she wrote in her blog. "How disgusting and painful!!!”
Kim and Kanye can now excitedly wait to welcome their third baby into the world.
