She may have two high-risk pregnancies, but Kim Kardashian West is not stopping at that. This time, she has considered surrogacy for baby no. 3 with Kanye West.
According to TMZ.com, the 36-year-old reality star and the Grammy-winning musician, who are already parents to daughter North West, 4, and son Saint West, 18 months, have decided to have another baby.
Because the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star has placenta accreta, making a third pregnancy potentially life-threatening, they used an agency to hire a surrogate.
In the $113,850 deal, the couple will pay her $45k in 10 monthly instalments of $4,500; The initial deposit for this, that the married couple will pay the surrogate’s agency, is said to be a whopping $68,850.
The surrogate is required to refrain from smoking, drinking and drugs during the pregnancy. She also agrees to restrict sexual activities in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy, including foregoing sexual intercourse for 3 weeks following embryo implantation.
The surrogate cannot go in hot tubs or saunas, cannot handle or change cat litter, apply hair dye, drink more than one caffeinated beverage per day or eat raw fish.
The agreement provides that Kim and Kanye “assume the legal and parental responsibilities for any child … that may possess any congenital or other abnormalities or defects.”
