Kim Kardashian’s surrogate was spotted again in Southern California on Tuesday.
The married mother-of-two was seen wearing a Nike T-shirt over her sizable bump and rolled-up shorts as she was getting into a black sedan car while her hands were full. She has not been seen since mid September.
Though there have been reports the college graduate is pregnant with a girl due in late January, Kim generated a rumour on Monday that her surrogate – who has yet to be named – could be expecting twins when she tweeted:
‘Anyone know who makes the best double stroller? Not a tiny compact one but regular size.’
And did she start something: Fans immediately started asking if the pinup was expecting twins.
But then the daughter of Kris Jenner, 61, quickly cleared up her intention with another tweet:
‘I have two kids people!!!! LOL.’ She was referring to North, aged four, and Saint, aged one.
Interestingly, in 2015 Kim told Ellen DeGeneres that a psychic relayed she would have twins in 2018.
‘A psychic emailed me the other day and said, “You’re gonna have twins in 2018.”‘ Kim did not take kindly to the note. ‘I was like, “Lose my email,”‘ she said.
Kim confirmed on an episode of KUWTK that she and Kanye were expecting again with a surrogate.
In September TMZ claimed she is an African-American married college graduate in her Twenties who has been married for five years.
Kim and Kanye are said to be ‘over the moon’ as they prepare to expand their family. It was first reported in July that Kim opted to go the surrogate route due to health complications during her first two pregnancies.
Kim, who suffered with life threatening placenta accreta when carrying North and Saint, is said to have been referred ‘by an agency’ to find the right surrogate.
TMZ claims the famous duo paid $45,000 for the surrogate to carry their third child.
‘The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate,’ a source told People. ‘They want everything to be perfect and for the baby to be extremely healthy,’ the insider added. ‘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.’
TMZ reports that the surrogate is prohibited from smoking, drinking or doing drugs during the pregnancy. She is also banned from using hot tubs, hair dye and eating raw fish. A report by UsWeekly at the time alleged the surrogate was ‘three months pregnant’.
The magazine’s insider added the surrogate is ‘in her late 20s’ and are set to welcome their third child in ‘January 2018’.
The report came after TMZ claimed a surrogacy deal would cost the couple $113,850 (£87,228).
It is thought that the couple will pay the surrogate $45k in 10 monthly installments 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.
TMZ also states that, should the pregnancy produce more than one child, the surrogate will receive an additional $5k per extra child ($5k extra for twins, $10k extra for triplets and so forth).
With the surrogacy comes the conditions that the employed woman doesn’t smoke, drink alcohol, take drugs and not have sexual intercourse in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy.
This also includes refraining from sex for three weeks following embryo implantation.
TMZ goes on to report that 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’.
Kim’s alleged decision to hire a surrogate comes after she was diagnosed with placenta accreta during both pregnancies.
