More Kids? Kim Kardashian Reveals Plans for Baby No. 4
Will she use a surrogate again?
Baby on the Brain
Kim Kardashian has baby on the brain… again. Though it’s only been less than two months since arrival of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s third child — a daughter named Chicago — with husband Kanye West, she’s already thinking about Baby No. 4.
The 37-year-old mom opened up about her ever-growing family in her cover story for the April 2018 issue of Elle. Getting candid about her journey to motherhood, including the “gritty” details of her first two difficult pregnancies, Kim revealed a fourth kid may be in her future — though that’s already plenty for her.
“I don’t think I could handle more than that,” she admitted. “My time is spread really thin. And I think it’s important that in all couples, the mom give the husband as much attention as the kids.”
However, Kim added, her relationship with Kanye, 40, does strengthen each time they add to their brood. “He’s taught me to have more of an opinion,” she shared. “I’ve taught him to be a bit more calm or cautious. We’re a good balance.”
As Celebuzz! previously reported, Kim and Kanye hired a surrogate to carry their youngest child after the KKW Beauty founder suffered placenta accreta — a high-risk condition that happens when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall — when she was pregnant with North, 4, and Saint, 2. Describing the complications “the most painful” experience she’s ever felt, the mom-of-three said turning to a surrogate was a smart decision for her and her baby.
“I refer to her as a surrogate, but it’s completely my and Kanye’s DNA, so technically that’s called a gestational carrier,” she explained, adding she just had “a feeling” about La’Reina Hayes, the woman she ultimately chose to carry her child, when she interviewed her as part of the surrogacy process.
“It’s a really tricky thing,” she recalled. “What sex do you put in? I just said, ‘Which one is the healthiest? Pick the healthiest one,’ and that was a girl.”
