Kanye West and Kim-Kardashian-West

Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West have reportedly hired a new surrogate to carry baby number four. On Wednesday, PEOPLE confirmed the power couple is expecting another boy via a surrogate.

It was initially assumed Kim and Kanye used the same surrogate who carried daughter Chicago West. The first surrogate, who is Black, was a fan who met Kim on social media.

According to TMZ, Kim hired a new surrogate because the last surrogate recently gave birth to her own daughter.

Kim, 38, and Kanye, 41, who are parents to Chicago, 11 months, North, 5, and son Saint, 3, were forced to use a surrogate from an agency to carry their unborn son, who is due in May.

Kim turned to a surrogate after giving birth to Saint, when doctors warned her that a third natural birth was too risky because she suffers from preeclampsia and placenta accreta -- a dangerous condition where the placenta attaches too deep, making it hard to remove after birth.

Kim was hands-on throughout her last surrogate's pregnancy, according to WENN.com. Kim and her surrogate regularly visited the doctor together after the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star requested the baby be born in the Los Angeles hospital where her two eldest were delivered.

Kim, who refers to her surrogate as a "carrier," was comfortable with her last surrogate because she maintained a healthy lifestyle.

"(We wanted her carrier to eat organically) which is just how she eats, so it was a good match for us,” she said. "I straight-up told her, 'Look, I ate doughnuts every single day. If you want doughnuts and ice cream, go for it. Do whatever you feel.' I'm not going to be picky like that. That's just ridiculous."

    Kendall

  • Vonn

    khlobacca will probably get pregnant again this year. She wants more kids, but not a bunch of baby daddies. Then she'll dump Tristian.

  • Rayne

    You’ve got to be tired too. Kanye is gone!

  • Rayne

    Anything!

  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    Lol I'll work on it

  • Rayne

    Maybe if we thumbs down ? on all posts Kardashian Sandra will stop posting them ? wishful thinking ?

  • Rayne

    I see him as another Orlando brown. Out of his mind !!

  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    I see Kim is taking a page from Kourtney's handbook. She's getting her last child out the way (her 4th) so all her kids can have the same dad before she dumps Kanye - just like Kourtney did with Scott. (Kourtney literally admitted she did that when Scott complained she only wants something to do with him when she wants another baby ?????). Kim said she's always wanted exactly 4 and was previously good with 3 for now, but went ahead and started on baby 4 sooner. I am just here for Kanye's meltdown smh. His lesson to learn though, I guess. Wouldn't be surprised if Kim dumped him and afterwards got with Drake.

  • FukkFolks2019

    Babies are a blessing. Even those used for TV ratings.

    We have to stop opening the kartrashian posts and commenting. I usually open their post just for the comments. No more though. I really am tired of these folks.

    *kanye shrugs and moves on*

    oh...can somebody in the Kardashaian Klan advise him that that ashy, blonde hair he has going on...makes him look extra dirty. Can we please escort him to the nearest hood barber for a fade up or even a Caesar...ASAP!!!

    Why? He wants Ricardo. Supposedly. Allegedly

  • Dun Dilly

    Or keep in tight for her NEXT hubby!

  • Tinytoon

    It's a tie between Kylie and Khloe. Khloe trying to keep Tristan in her clutches or Kylie keeping Travis next to her hip.

  • EMILY POST

    Lol that just means she don’t even have to sleep with dude ... lol ?
    She totally out smarts that guy...

  • FukkFolks2019

    4th hubbies matter too. I agree.

  • Bashi22

    They should choose me I would for $400k

  • SpiceGirl

    This just started something with them....watch the rest of the sisters follow in 5,4,3,2,1....................

    Kim already Dump him he’s too docile to believe. Kim don’t even have sex with him.

  • PhillyFacts

  • Rayscoty

    Why Kim don't share her surgeon with Kanye?

  • Rayne

    It’s so evident!

  • smartchickfl

    If those lady loving rumors aren't true....

  • Allihave2say

    I hope Khloe has some sperm in the freezer because Tristan is NOT interested in the first 2 kids and he damn for sure isn't interested in Khloe!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I thought she said she was going to quit with the Kardashian posts after the new year? I may have read that post wrong...

  • Allihave2say

    It'll be Kylie before Khloe. I think Khloe is a better mom than most of them. I don't think she and Tristan are still having sex but if the are, Tristan will make sure she doesn't get pregnant. He stopped being interested in Khloe 1.5 years ago. She moved into his house, crowds her holidays, set up a room in his house for True, tried to throw shade on BM #1 (it was at that time he started to cheat) and she looks like she has to dress up everyday or she'd be stinky.

  • Allihave2say

    They need to stop contouring their noses. It's ugly to me. These women with all the whitish highlights under the eyes, heavy eyebrow makeup and contouring look awkward in photos. In person, pretty but on camera no.

  • Harley

    I thought we were done with this family for 2019 ?

  • Harley

    Yeah true gotta just stop commenting

  • TMW

    Not as long as people keep replying in the posts.

  • dblogged

    Kim is a man

  • ???TheRider???

    I think they did the do to create North, but not Saint. Kim probably has lots of toys to use instead of Kanye?????

  • ???TheRider???

    She can’t dump someone who doesn’t want her! He checked out of that relationship a long ass time ago.

  • Bashi22

    Yes to crest North, Kanye was hot then. For the other three all invitro. Along with Chrissy Tiegen and John are invitro

  • Vonn

    True, true.

  • Vonn

    It's so hard to resist. Those be some of the best comments!! Lol.

  • TwitterFingerz

    Who would want more kids with Kanye? Im just sayin I guess anything for more money and to keep up with Kourtney. But Kourts kids are all natural by Scott.

  • Judge Mental Will

    She'll do anything for her show Ratings but won't simply get her husband proper medical attention. HIRE A THERAPIST KIM AND A SURGEON TO FIX THAT BOTTY THAT'S SHAPED LIKE JUPITER.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Aww, thanks for asking. There's not much to talk about. I have a cute little miniature garden in my living room. I don't drink wine. My backpack collection is down to just 4 backpacks.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    She's choosing her child's gender now, it seems Smh.

  • Lady_Elle

    Congratulations to this odd couple! :-)

  • Rayne

    That’s nice! I can tell you take really good care of it ?

  • Sassie

    I wonder why Kim wants so many kids by Kanye? She has a reason for it, I believe...it can't be money cuz she makes more than him. Can it be because she genuinely loves him or simply for media attention? I trust NOTHING that chick does.

  • Sassie

    Jupiter, LOL!!!!

  • Let them eat cake

    she cheats as well
