Sources close to the family have confirmed to PEOPLE magazine that Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have hired a surrogate to carry their third child.
Kim had voiced concerns about carrying a third child given the health difficulties she faced during her first two pregnancies.
A source told PEOPLE “The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate”.
“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.”
The source continued, “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 third child will join oldest sister North and soon to be middle child Saint.
