Kim Kardashian is ready to implant ‘the last embryo’ into a gestational carrier

Kim Kardashian gets a helping hand from her man Kanye West while they grab ice cream

I think both things can be true at once. It’s true that Kim Kardashian is medically incapable of having a healthy pregnancy after Saint’s very difficult birth. I also think it’s true that Kim Kardashian had barely any desire to try to get pregnant again after Saint’s birth, and that all she really cares about is protecting her biggest ASSet, her body. That was why Kim and Kanye decided to go with a gestational carrier for Chicago West. And just FYI, I always thought Kim was more into the idea of having a third child – I don’t think Kanye really cared. It’s not that I believe Kanye is a bad father – I do not. I think he adores his kids and he’s a hands-on dad… when he’s around. He’s just not around all that often, and Kim does the brunt of the child-rearing, with the help of Kris Jenner and a team of nannies. Something else I believe? That Kim was really amazed at how easy everything was with a gestational carrier. So it would not surprise me at all if she wanted to do it again.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have babies on the brain again! Seven months after welcoming daughter Chicago, the couple are planning to have a fourth child, multiple sources reveal exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.

“[They] have one last embryo left,” one insider says, adding that the sex is male. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 37, and the Grammy winner, 41, plan to have the embryo implanted in a gestational carrier “soon,” a second insider tells Us.

This will not be the first time Kardashian and West, who wed in May 2014, turn to surrogacy. They hired a gestational carrier for Chicago after the social media mogul suffered high-risk pregnancies with daughter North, 5, and son Saint, 2, due to preeclampsia and placenta accreta.

[From Us Weekly]

I rolled my eyes at “they have one last embryo left,” like they don’t have the time or resources to create additional embryos if they wanted to. Other than that, sure, I believe this. I think this is Kim’s desire: she’s the one who wants a big family, and she wants another baby, especially if it means that she doesn’t have to be the pregnant one. So is it too early to talk about what they’ll name a fourth child? My guess is… Bob. Bob West. Also: I wonder if they’ll use the same gestational carrier? Kim said that she loved the woman who carried Chicago and they became friends.

    I think the gestational carrier has already been implanted and Kimye will confirm shortly. I wonder if they are planning for another daughter? Kim may be copying her mother and want to eventually have five daughters. Keeping up with The Kardashian/Wests future reality show perhaps?

    • Michelle says:

      I read yesterday that the last embryo is male.

    • Char says:

      They already have enough kast for Keeping Up With The Kids.

    • Nancy says:

      I think she wants the replication of the Kardashian Family, with four kids. The two Jenner girls came later on when Robert Kardashian already dumped the cheating PMK. *I saw a clip somewhere, probably on E, where Kourtney was talking about a fourth kid as well.* Bible 👩‍👩‍👧‍👦

    • bros says:

      he looks like a combo of Mike meyers as the evil villain in Austin powers and an escapee from a psych ward in those weird padded room slippers. And she is trying to be a black woman.

  2. Sensible says:

    Off topic, but Ye looks like he just escaped from a less than 5 star Eastern European Health Spa/Sanatarium. The fact that both the people in the picture consider themselves fashion mavens kills me. Plus…Kim’s tan is something else, is she trolling black women? Cause that’s what it looks like from here.

    • vexa says:

      I thought the same thing about the tan!! In the last picture she looks almost like a budget Naomi Campbell???

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I also noticed how BROWN her skin is…not orange fake-tan, but like she’s been baking in the sun. with her heritage, I don’t doubt that she can get that dark if she tries. It doesn’t look bad, but it is very noticeable, esp with the neon dress.

      I gotta give it to her, her body looks fantastic.

      Ye, on the other hand…well, he looks like he’s put on about 30 pounds, that suit is ill-fitting, and what the ever-loving F is he wearing on his feet? SHOWER SHOES? WITH SOCKS? I can’t.

      • eto says:

        Back in the old days, Kim was quite fair. I know that folks with olive tones can go from fair to tan quite easily but this is really pushing the boundaries of “nature” lol.

        I’m a black woman with more golden tones in my skin and I have never gotten more than a few shades darker in the summer – even when I was working outside several hours a day.

        I call shenanigans!

      • Jag says:

        eto, it really depends upon the person. We are part Native American, and my brother turns the most beautiful dark brown-red in the summer; especially so when he was a whitewater rafting instructor. His pictures of his feet with the super tan lines that he would get from being on the water every day were something to behold. But when he was snowboard instructing in the winter, he was significantly lighter and you’d never guess he had been so dark just months earlier.

        Not saying that she’s not doing something to “enhance” her color, but it can differ with people.

    • Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

      He wore this to a damn wedding!

    • AnnaKist says:

      Thank you, Sensible – that’s what I wanted to comment on. Perhaps she is trolling, but I think she really believes she now qualifies as a woman of colour. I feel those K women, and Kimbo in particular, have truly appropriated a black look/lifestyle/culture (or what they perceive it to be) to the point where they’ve discounted and discarded who they really are.

    • Hotsauceinmybag says:

      I thought the same thing! This woman never stops appropriating smdh

    • Yes Doubtful says:

      I noticed the same thing about that ridiculous tan. Are the 2000’s back or something?

  3. Jane says:

    Yes kim is trolling black woman with the fakest looking body and tan.

  4. SM says:

    Fourth? They have 3 already? I missed something.

  5. Anon says:

    She definitely got ribs removed.

    • Millenial says:

      I doubt it. One, almost no doctor would do it – I think your organs start falling out if you do that. Two, I know she’s body obsessed, but I think she does (mostly) legal stuff to her body. She doesn’t have a death wish.

      I DO think she has a small frame anyways, and is very thin at the moment, but looks kinda crazy because she has fat injected into her hips and butt and breast implants

      • Swack says:

        You can always find a doctor that is willing to do something like that for the right amount of money.

      • Molly says:

        She definitely got the implants/fillers in her butt recently fixed, and they look a lot better. She’s clearly excited to show them off.

      • Murphy says:

        Yeah, with money and the ability to travel you can always find a doctor.

      • OriginalLala says:

        her favorite plastic surgeon has a notoriously sketchy rep – I am sure he would do whatever she wants. including removing ribs or whatever else because $$$

      • Isa says:

        One of the ig models I follow had something done called a corset tummy tuck. I imagine that’s what Kim had done in addition to her hips and butt. Gives you a narrow waist. The girl already had a figure to die for, she just wanted that silhouette.

      • Anon says:

        Uh, there are definitely doctors that do it. I’ve looked into it (I’m fascinated by plastic surgery) and there are doctors in *Ohio* who perform rib removal. You don’t think L.A. doctors would do it? Especially the ones who cut into a young Kylie Jenner? Lol. It doesn’t kill you, but you are sore afterwards.

    • Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

      Hi @Anon, there’s such a thing? I’m so curious? Can you share more with us?

      • Missy says:

        People have been talking about this rib removal thing for years, remember when the rumour was that Marilyn Manson had it done so he could perform oral sex on himself. It’s ridiculous. I know Kim is crazy about having the perfect body but I highly doubt she had a rib removed. That would be a crazy lo recovery and I’m sure it would have strange side effects on the body. Has anybody here ever broken a rib? It’s crazy painful and takes forever to heal

      • Anon says:

        Hi, yes it’s a thing! Rib removal results in a tighter waistline and makes your curves more pronounced. Often patients get liposuction at the same time to enhance the contour even more. I would totally do it if I were a celebrity; my ribcage is quite broad and I don’t have a feminine waist as a result.

        The human barbie got ribs removed, and there are rumors that Cher did as well.

    • ME says:

      She’s smaller in the middle after having two kids than she was at age 14. I think she had lipo all around that area to make it as small as possible.

    • Steff says:

      I also think she had some ribs removed. She looks SO smally lately – even when she was younger and skinny she did not have such a small waist.

  6. Snazzy says:

    Is he really wearing socks and slippers? WHY?

  7. Lightpurple says:

    Trump West

    That man is mentally ill and non-compliant with treatment because it impedes his creative process, according to both him and her. He has been forced into treatment by others while she was away because that’s the only way he gets treatment at all; she enables his non-compliance.
    These children she keeps bringing into the world will have to deal with that, she can’t shield them from it. Very selfish on her part to do that to them just because she wants to be seen as a MILF. I’m not saying that those with mental illness can’t be good parents but this man has only gotten help when outsiders have had him brought in for care. That doesn’t make for a stable, safe environment for children.

    • Lynnie says:

      That’s my biggest gripe with all this. All the nannies in the world won’t cover up the fact that their parents are two individuals with severe emotional issues, and little kids are veryyyyyy perceptive on picking up stuff like that

      • Lightpurple says:

        North is already old enough to see what’s happening. They both have indicated he’s not compliant with treatment. Fine if she wants to expose herself to that but the kids have no choice and he will always be their father. They’ll always have to deal with it

    • Renee says:

      Unfortunately, she doesn’t care. Her kids get her more media attention which in turn gives her more fame and $$$. That’s all either of one of them seem to want.

    • Obvious is Obvious says:

      @lightpurple. Excellent points. Thank you for bringing this up.

      She encourages non treatment of his mental illness, because he keeps getting media attention for it, one way or the other. I also don’t think she cares about him enough to see him healthy. She just doesn’t want a fight when she sees him. She’s only ever been in the relationship because he bumped her status and keeps her in the news.

      Edit: I’m also equally disturbed that he only received medical intervention when she was out of communication with him and travelling. This should tell everyone all they need to know.

  8. Louise177 says:

    I don’t think they are trying for another child. I know that most people think Kim is making up that she had difficult pregnancies but I think she’s telling the truth. I also don’t think Kim is refusing to get pregnant because of vanity. If she cared that much she wouldn’t have gotten pregnant twice. I don’t see any fault with not going through months of pain and difficulties again.

    • Missy says:

      I’m not gonna judge her on this…id probably have more kids too if I could afford to pay someone else to carry them for me

    • IMO, she got pregnant the first time so Kris Humphries would give her a divorce. If he hadn’t agreed to the divorce North would’ve legally been considered Kris’ child because he was still Kim’s husband.

      Before Kim got pregnant by Kanye Kris H was refusing to give Kim a divorce and was threatening to expose the Ks about how fake their show was. He wanted to show how they’d gone back, after the fact, to film scenes to try and justify Kim ending their marriage, making him look controlling, etc.

      Anyway, I think he wanted none of the responsibility of another mans child and just decided to let it go. And I think that’s why Kim got pregnant even though she was still married.

      The Ks were on the verge of exposure, a lot of people thought Kim got married only for ratings. Kim was desperate. Kanye saved them all from obscurity.

  9. Mc says:

    I don’t think it’s super easy to just “create new embryos”. I’ve never gone through ivf but it sounds pretty horrendous on your body… shots and hormones and egg extraction.

    • Marigold says:

      Yeah, it’s certainly no walk in the park. I did it and can confirm-it makes you moody, crampy, tired, bloated, it’s uncomfortable (about 25 shots in 11 days) and it usually causes weight gain. We know Kim likes weight gain about as much as she likes raising her own kids…

      • Melanie says:

        Not to mention placenta acreta is a severe high risk pregnancy. It is dangerous to mother and baby. I had it and my daughter was born 7 weeks early and I hemorrhaged and needed a blood transfusion. I also had to lose my uterus.

      • SweetPotato says:

        I’m so sorry Melanie! I had it too and it was scary. Genuinely curious, do you ever doubt Kim? I remember her talking about doing placenta encapsulation with Saint. It strikes me as weird because I wanted to encapsulate my placenta but couldn’t because it needed to be sent to pathology.

    • Snazzy says:

      Yup, I confirm, very difficult. I tried, and after many months of shots, meds etc was only able to have one viable embryo, and when implanted it didn’t stick. So ya, even if you are super rich (we’re not but we paid a s**t load of money to try this), it’s not that simple.

      • El says:

        Snazzy, I’m so sorry that your embryo didn’t stick. That’s very hard.

      • Snazzy says:

        thanks El. Ya, it sucked. I will admit I stayed in bed for a few days feeling sorry for myself and eating a lot of cookies… but life goes on, and I must admit, I am a pretty amazing auntie. So there is that 🙂

      • jwoolman says:

        My aunt never had children born to her but she was like another parent to us as kids and adults. My brother even lived with her whenever he needed. I stayed with her for three months after her husband died suddenly, so she would have a driver. So yay, aunties!

    • El says:

      Agree, that it is hard an emotionally draining to go through hormone treatments, daily blood draws, and the extraction itself. I can completely understand not wanting to do that again especially if she already has three children. I also understand wanting to have another child because an embryo is sitting there frozen. We were planning on two children, but ended up with an extra embryo and tried again so now we are a crazy family of five. (I understand not everyone feels the same about embryos and that is fine, but after having our first two we felt obligated to the remaining one.)

    • Amelie says:

      Yeah this. Being able to afford to create new embryos and being physically and mentally prepared to make new embryos are two very different things. I don’t know exactly what’s involved but I’ve been watching an acquaintance’s journey via social media. She had a double mastectomy since she has the BRCA 1 gene and her mom died of breast cancer (along with other family members I believe). I think she had reconstruction and now she is going through the process of extracting eggs and freezing them in case she wants children (I’m not sure but I think she might be thinking of getting her ovaries removed too). I can tell you from looking at her social media posts it is not an easy process at all.

    • Steff says:

      Was not doing it myself, my best friend went through it and oh my gosh, it really is a super tough procedure – nothing you want to do twice.

  10. grabbyhands says:

    A. She needs to lay off the tanner. We get it, you like to play act at being a WOC.

    B. As much as I believe all the family drama is scripted to the umpteenth degree, I wonder if this is supposed to be a one up on Kourtney so that PMK’s first and best hustler has the most kids.

  11. PerfectlyObsessed says:

    Kanye looks terrible! His suite looks cheap, it’s ill-fitted, & what is with the sandals & socks? I do not understand why he thinks he understands fashion. I feel like Kayne is like the emperors new clothes story.

  12. MoGrianach says:

    That’s not a deep tan, that’s doing blackface. She is awful.

    • Babs says:

      Is blackbody a thing? Because whew. So Kanye wants to be white, and Kim wants to be black but doesn’t want to be black of course. Boy, the headache. I feel for the kids and the identity struggles they are going to face.

  13. Brunswickstoval says:

    If I had their resources and a team of nannies 4 kids would be a breeze. I have 4 kids and am lucky to live on a good income and have access to great education and health care. With their resources it wouldn’t be difficult at all.

  14. Kath says:

    I see Kim is doing full Black Woman cosplay now. I just can’t…

    • ME says:

      But Kanye doesn’t like Black women lol. He even said his fav vids are “black men with white women”.

  15. Gippy says:

    It can take several cycles to have enough quality eggs (w/Kimye’s $ I’m sure they’re doing all the genetic testing). The egg retrieval cycles are worse and harder on your body than the transfer cycles. Speaking from experience – it sucks. Although with just 1 egg I’m surprised they aren’t wanting to harvest more, like it or not egg quality goes down with age – although Kim could be one of the few that has good genetics (they can test your ovarian reserve and get an idea).

    She looks like a cartoon, but I’m still lovin the dress 🤷🏼‍♀️

    • Millenial says:

      My guess is they might actually have more than one embryo left, they just don’t want to make the pro-lifers mad. My other guess is that the gestational carrier is already pregnant, which is why they are saying for sure it’s a boy.

      • jwoolman says:

        They would know the sex already before implantation. I’m reasonably sure that Kim pretended to have fertility issues so she could do gender selection on the embryos to ensure her second child was a boy. She knew Kanye would keep pushing for a boy if she had another girl and she did not want to be pregnant again, whether or not she was telling the truth about her medical difficulties (it really sounded as though she was claiming every complication she could find on the net, and some were not compatible with the others…).

        Then she discovered how well using a gestational carrier would work. So she was fine about having more kids. She outsourced all the work, so it’s not the added stress that it would be in a non-rich family. Just hire more nannies and night nurses and you’re done.

  16. Babs says:

    Not to defend Kim, but I understand how she doesn’t want to lose her body after working hard for it (yes, surgery is hard). I lost my body to pregnancy and I’m actually working my ass off to stop being a fat slob by dieting and working out and man, after all that pain I’m not sure I want to go through all this again in my life.

  17. Lynnie says:

    Her “tan” is on the same level of that one German woman who is trying to become black. Disgusting

  18. Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

    And people revere him as a fashion icon. BYE!

  19. Alisha says:

    She wore THAT to a wedding? Goodness. She really needs all of the attention.

  20. Commenter says:

    “I rolled my eyes at “they have one last embryo left,” like they don’t have the time or resources to create additional embryos if they wanted to.”

    Obviously, you’ve never had to undergo fertility treatments. If you had, you wouldn’t make this comment. She clearly has the resources, but that doesn’t mean she has the emotional wherewithal to go through IVF again, nor does she necessarily want to. It can take several cycles to get even one more embryo, and it’s extremely taxing on your body and emotions. I wouldn’t assume it’s necessarily about time or resources.

    • TrixC says:

      I’ve done three cycles of IVF (actually I’m currently pregnant with an IVF baby) and although it’s not a walk in the park, I think it would be heaps easier if one had plenty of time (for me the most stressful thing was having to time all the appointments around my job), plenty of money (so you know you could afford to try again if it didn’t work) and if you didn’t have to take the additional drugs to prepare your body for a pregnancy.

  21. CharliePenn says:

    She’s half Armenian… does that mean her darker coloring could be her natural skin tone when she’s very tan? Honestly I don’t know.
    But i would be surprised if she laid in the sun to get this tan, actually. It’s really bad for your skin to do so and all the Ks are very protective of their looks.

  22. Lala11_7 says:

    Why would you CONTINUE to have children with someone who has SERIOUS mental health issues?

  23. ME says:

    Who thinks Kim just put this rumor out there for attention and to get people talking about her? Do they really need another kid? I mean it’s great because they will give more people jobs (as nannies) but other than that, Kanye is never around, and Kim is too busy trying to stay famous. Those poor kids. I think maybe Kim just wants another baby (if this story is true) because everyone talks about how cute her kids are. It feeds her ego.

  24. InquisitiveNewt says:

    H/T @Celebitchy not sure where Kim is pretending to be at present, but my mother and I had the great displeasure of sitting at the table next to her in the Piazetta, Capri, yesterday. Your man Jonathan was predictably terrifying in DMs that were gilded around the top, an unbelievably tatty top and a Gucci satchel slung bandolier like over his shoulder. The Ks were dressed like black widows – obviously because everyone else was wearing summer colours – and had straw hats with black scarves tied around the brim. Both obsessed re the location of their driver and like how amazing that like guy’s belt was. North was in attendance and, despite Mama’s protestations to the contrary, had been allowed to straighten her hair yet again. She too was wearing a hat, a pretty flowered sundress, and a sulk. Small wonder when the adults took no notice of her other than to a) Jonathan fondle her arms over and over; we both, separately, found this excessively creepy b) say “North, honey, look how pretty your drink is” – and photograph it before the kid drank (not that said kid noticed it because she was locked into her massive smartphone, doing Mama proud) c) take as much time as possible to leave the table to show off their figures (! They are NOT superslim, or even slim. Methinks the lady, exposing her supersized derriere in a gold edged black bodysuit under her black woven sundress, doth photoshop too much.
    Incidentally, none of them left a tip.

    • me says:

      Wow no tip? Were E cameras there? I think the show pays for their food and tip. Pathetic family.

      Also, Kim lies so much…”North is only allowed to straighten her hair once a year”. LOL yeah ok. At least North was at the same table this time. No nannies around?

      • InquisitiveNewt says:

        @Me No, no cameras – amazingly! She did make sure that she’d be noticed by standing in the square post-mineral water by turning slowly, 1/4 revolution per 30 seconds, but – given that a) the square is incredibly busy at lunchtime b) it’s a chic destination, rich Eurowidows abounding c) not sure the Italians give a **** about the Kardashians there was only a little side-eye, and that probably due to her costume/bounteous implants.
        Why would North need a nanny when she has her massive mobile phone to keep her company 😉 !?

  25. HeyThere! says:

    She needs to stop with the spray tans. How strange.

  26. Paisley says:

    It would be exhausting to be Kim. Everyday some strange costume with a ton of makeup and the posing. I am at my most miserable when I have too much time on my hands and start thinking about myself.

  27. Anilehcim says:

    I’ve had a theory that the more kids she has and the older she gets, the more she is going to become the new Rachel Dolezal. Her fake tans get DARKER all the time and she was rocking a textured weave for a while there… and when she gets called out on it, she hides behind North. “Oh I got those braids bc my biracial baby wanted me to” — This woman is living out her dream right now… she finally feels free to basically pretend she’s black.

    Also: I’m no prude nor do I mean this as an insult, but what she’s wearing looks like it belongs on a stripper. She’s disrespectful for wearing that to a wedding… especially when her own weddingS were so heavily curated. She actually had a dress code at BOTH of her weddings.

  28. Zan says:

    As someone who has had my own rib cartilage “harvested” to rebuild my nose to gain functionality—I believe there is no way she got ribs removed. The recovery is long (think months not weeks), she would have at least a 2 inch scar (or more) on her torso, and her torso is on display at all times. No makeup can cover the way your muscles get jacked up from the surgery. My obliques on that one side are still a mess and I am a year and a half post-surgery. I only got a couple inches harvested from two ribs, not rib removal.

  29. Snowflake says:

    I’m white as a ghost and with a spray tan I don’t have an orange tint. I have a golden brown color not an orangish color. that’s because I don’t self apply I go and get an airbrush spray tan. It’s the in store self tanner or the tanning booth where you just rotate that give you that the yellow orange color. The color is more personalized with an airbrush spray tan. She wont go out without a full face of makeup. She hasnt been laying out in the sun to get that color. Just saying

  30. bacondonut says:

    her latest looks always remind me of those lizard aliens from the 80s sci fi show, V. basically she and kanye embody the lounge lizard look – they are pure TACKY!

  31. CairinaCat says:

    She is just trying to distract from her moron sister currently in the news cycle
