Kim Kardashian & Kanye’s surrogate is already three months pregnant

Kim Kardashian and sister Khloe show off their famous curves!

Kim Kardashian has been quiet-ish for a few weeks, but then again, she’s been so much more low-key for the past eight months or so, since the Paris robbery. I think she’s keeping low-key these days especially because she and Kanye West don’t want to scare off the surrogate they’ve hired to carry their third child. We heard, months ago, that Kim and Kanye had decided to go with surrogacy, and now Us Weekly reports that the surrogate is already three months pregnant!

Here comes baby! Kim Kardashian has long been vocal about her desire for a big family — and now that family’s growing. In June, the 36-year old and husband, Kanye West began looking for a surrogate, and a source now tells Us Weekly they have cause to celebrate: Their pick — a San Diego mom in her late 20s, referred by an agency — is three months along, which means they’ll likely welcome baby No. 3 in January 2018.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and rapper, 40, are in experienced hands, as the woman has reportedly served as a surrogate before, even appearing in a promotional video about the process with her own family. The parents to North, 4, and Saint, 19 months, have agreed to pay $45,000 in 10 monthly installments of $4,500, according to a TMZ report. In the case of multiples, Kardashian and West will fork over $5,000 per additional child. This is all in addition to the whopping $68,850 deposit given to the agency.

Other stipulations in the contract focus on the surrogate’s wellness habits. Among the fairly standard expectant-mom guidelines are no drinking, smoking or drug use; no hot tubs or saunas; no raw fish; and no handling cat litter.

$69K doesn’t sound all that “whopping” to me considering what the surrogate is doing. I realize that this stuff is regulated and no one wants to look like they’re hiring poor women to carry designer babies, but I would think that being a surrogate for Kim and Kanye would mean a lot more money for the surrogate. Anyway, January 2018: mark your calendars. A new Yeezy Jr or Kim Jr will enter the world.

Meanwhile, the Paris robbery came at a strange time in Kim’s political life, because she had really been blossoming into a somewhat “woke” activist on some important issues, like feminism, reproductive rights and race. Incidentally, she’s using her Twitter for good this week:

I still don’t have a problem with this – you can hate her and mock her, but Kim has a huge platform and I’d rather see her advocate for this kind of stuff alongside promoting her makeup line, as opposed to just keeping her mouth shut.

    I mean she and her sisters could stop being culture vultures too but that affects their $$$.

    • MM says:

      Another baby raised by nannies. It’s trendy to have kids these days.

    • Sabrine says:

      I hope Kim and Kanye cough up some additional funds or the surrogate who is having their child. She is really getting ripped off and it’s sad because she almost certainly needs extra income for her own family. I was shocked when I saw the paltry amount of money she is getting.

  2. Shijel says:

    Kim needs to get her butt sorted out. She has a cute figure but the backside ruins everything.

    I’m glad she for once uses her platform for a good cause. I don’t know if she really believes in it, I hope she does, but it already helps. I’m glad she’s not choosing silence.

    • InVain says:

      This seriously made me LOL. Sorting out is exactly what needs to happen with her rear.

  3. Char says:

    Kongratulations for the baby and also for speaking up! As a role model for many people, it’s great that Kim is bringing important issues to her Twitter.

  4. nicegirl says:

    Obvs I am no professional gestational carrier, but geez, after carrying 2 of my own, I cannot imagine doing it for another person for that bargain basement rate. Growing humans is super hard work. I am side eyeing K&K for paying so little, no matter who sets the rate.

    • Nancy says:

      She has two children she carried herself. Did adoption occur to her if she has the mindset of a Gosselin. I have no problem with surrogacy, but there is no way this woman will have any normalcy in her life. If the possibility of privacy existed in this family, she may have a chance…but, I can already envision the “very special” episodes of that show of theirs. Kim is basically harmless but has shown her fangs in the past. I wouldn’t trust her to buy me a pet, RIP Mercy, let alone carry my child. @nicegirl: It wasn’t my intent to post under you, something went amok!

    • CynicalAnn says:

      Some women love being pregnant though. I didn’t mind it with my first-I absolutely would have offered to be a gestational carrier for a close friend only. My last one was horrible and I would never, ever, want to be pregnant again-no matter for who, or for $$$.

  5. BJ says:

    I believe the $69K goes to the agency ,the woman gets $45K + 5K for each additional child.She also gets more money if she loses an organ due to complications from the pregnancy.

    • Sojaschnitzel says:

      How is it possible that the agency gets more money than the woman who does all the hard work and gives birth? And risks her health over this?

  6. Cali says:

    I find it a little comical that the news hit Us Weekly yesterday morning and hardly any fanfare followed. Everyone was too distracted with politics and other pressing things going on in the world. The public seems to be finally losing interest in the Kardashians/Jenners.

  7. minx says:

    Why does she dress like that?

  8. Beth says:

    That outfit is terrible. A winter coat? Clear plastic looking heels with gym clothes? Hideously tacky

  9. Jeesie says:

    The pay sort of has to be ‘low’. Becoming a surrogate is a huge thing, with so many implications for all involved. It has to be incredibly carefully considered and it has to be something the surrogate is fully comfortable with (not just something they subject themselves to for a pay day). The risk of exploitation is so high. Paying someone what amounts to a good salary means they’re compensated well, but not at a level that might cause them to sign up for something they aren’t suited for.

    Make the pay hundreds of thousands of dollars and you’ll run into all sorts of ethical dilemmas immediately.

    • Lucytunes says:

      Thanks for explaining this. There are laws established in California for exactly the reasons you stated. They can pay whatever they want for housing and extras, but the “payment” to the surrogate is set legally. The other $70k goes to the agency who handles the legal process for the surrogacy.

      • Lady D says:

        Can I just say that $70K is an obscene amount of money to charge for something so emotional and vital to some people’s lives. It’s an obscene amount of money to charge period, especially for those desperate for a child, but will never have those kinds of funds.

    • nicegirl says:

      Thank you, that makes a lot of sense, actually.

    • Lauren says:

      The exploitation is huge. In Canada it is illegal to pay a surrogate for carrying a child. You can reimburse them for expenses, housing etc. though as a work around.

  10. skyblue says:

    I just want her to never ever wear those grey capri yoga pants and plastic shoes as a bonafide outfit again. I know it is a pathetic, halfhearted wish and so petty but it is a tiny diversion from the daily Trump regime dog and pony show.

  11. Karen says:

    I’m almost 5 months and my baby’s due at the end of December

    So by my lazy math, she’s either she’s 4 months or it’ll be February. It’s sadly 40 wks which is closer to 10 months than 9.

  12. Bridget says:

    The surrogate is in her late 20s and already has at least one child of her own, and this is her 2nd surrogacy. This doesn’t strike anyone as odd? Less about judging someone for using a surrogate, or more for wondering if someone who is financially vulnerable is being exploited.

    • Lucytunes says:

      No. Surrogates are heavily screened for that very reason. Most agencies, especially reputable ones in CA, only accept women who are fiscally stable already.

      • CynicalAnn says:

        This. We have a few family friends who are gay couples who have used surrogates. It is a very lengthy screening process-it’s not something easily done.

    • Karen says:

      The woman gets 45k (est from above) and medical bills/delivery covered for a year of pregnancy/recovery.

      Hopefully it’s someone who just loves being pregnant, and decided to make it a career. But I’m sure the salary provided is a huge insentive for most in this business, as many can keep their day jobs as well. I doubt it’s expoitation, but the financial sum is no doubt a huge factor in signing up for this job.

    • supposedtobeworking says:

      no. My 11 year old daughter has a friend who has had 4 kids of her own and is on her second surrogacy. They are a stable family with a good income. In Canada though, where you can’t give payment.

  13. boredblond says:

    At least she isn’t doing the little pillow pretend act, as others have

    • IsThisReal? says:

      yes yes yes yes yes,

      I cannot stand that pillow act.

      What is WITH kim and her clothes? They are so unflattering.

  14. HK9 says:

    Welp, I guess I’m going to have to eat my hat because I didn’t think the marriage would last long enough for baby#3. Congrats to them.

  15. RedOnTheHead says:

    I’m confused. The article says she and Kanye started looking for a surrogate in June. It’s the end of July and the surrogate is 3 months along? That doesn’t add up

    • Hunterca says:

      This confused me too. But it’s reaaally late morning for me and I’m JUST NOW sitting down with my coffee, so…

  16. Jaylee says:

    Kourtney has 3 kids so Kim won’t stop until she has 3. Sibling rivalry is intense with those gals. They all rip eachother off but Kim does it in a creepy way. It’s not just looks and product endorsement, it’s their actual lives.
    Whirlwind love affair with tall ball player was Khloe’s life. Kim forced it and it blew up in her face. She’s been on a Kourtney kick recently (the Cher hair). I think Kanye will be dismissed from the equation shortly because Kourtney is a sexy SINGLE mom of 3.

    • No Dignity in that says:

      Perhaps Kanye will remain in the picture as long as he adds value to the Kardashian brand?
      Who is sexier?
      Sexy single mom-of-three Kourtney?
      Or sexy married-to-famous-handsome-man mom of three Kim?

      Which constellation can create more drama for the show?

      Which constellation makes more money?

      Commercialisation of human relationships. I hope Kanye gets out of that hellhole in one piece. He is such a talented musician.

  17. me says:

    It will be a girl. Kim said she wanted North to have a sister. I am sure they used gender selection. Also, why does Kim choose to wear heavy jackets in the summer and be half naked in the winter?

    • Valois says:

      Is gender selection legal in the US?

      • Susan says:

        It’s not gender selection in the context of selective abortion. But since it’s a surrogate, they are implanting embryos created in vitro. and they know what the sex of their embryos are. So they can just choose to implant a female embryo.

      • Valois says:

        I was talking about gender selection in the context of IVF :)
        Thanks for your answer. That’s illegal in my country of birth (and in most countries I believe) and I didn’t know it was legal in the US.

  18. thaliasghost says:

    Praise be for the good news that Ofkanye is with child!

  19. BP says:

    Ugh the camel toe!!! I think I just threw up.

  20. No Dignity in that says:

    Emotionally and hormonally surrogate mothers suffer a lot when they have to hand over their baby. As it grew in their womb it feels like it is theirs. Sorry, but I find this extremely exploitative. I dislike the commercialisation of private human relationships. It seems immoral to me. Prostitution seems immoral to me, too, and it is the suitor who is immoral. I just don’t buy that intimacy is or should be for sale. I don’t buy that prostitution is a “job” like any other. I believe that any relationship between adults is morally more valuable than relationships for sale. People who buy friends are belittled. People who pay a prostitute are not belittled? Mistresses who slept with their king for money and titles and riches were ridiculed and deservedly so. But nowadays sleeping with a suitor for money is okay???
    (I never blame prostitutes because research states that most of them did get into prostitution not because of what would be called “free will” or “free choice”. But diehard need for money. Or worse.)
    I dislike the commercialisation of human relationships. Nope, not buying it.

    Btw. Kim can afford the BEST medical care in the world. She can afford to stop working for monthes. So yes, her pregnancy might be a bit more risky but hardly life-threatening. She is doing that out of convenience.

  21. Aurelia says:

    Gender selection is not illegal in the US. Its part of the in vitro process. There are clinics in both California and New York that do it. Sperm that go onto make a male embryo or female embryo each carry a different electronic charge. They use a charge to separate the different sperm and only fertilize the egg with that sperm you want. Viola, done. The success rate is really high. Nobody gets hurt.

    • Valois says:

      Thanks for your explanation :)

      I’m still really conflicted about this but it has nothing to do with the process which I’m sure is extremely safe.
