If you believed Kim Kardashian, the woman who once said she would never wish her pregnancy upon anyone, was done after baby #2, you may be wrong. Kardashian told her mother Kris Jenner in the teaser for next week’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she wants a third child—but she wouldn’t have it the traditional way.
“So I’ve come to the conclusion that I just want to explore surrogacy,” Kardashian said. Her mother looked shocked.
A third natural pregnancy would be a real danger to Kardashian, health-wise. Before giving birth to Saint, she explained to C magazine that doctors “think I’ll have placenta accreta again [a serious condition where the placenta stays firmly attached to the uterus wall after childbirth instead of detaching; Kardashian had it after her first pregnancy], so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me. I think we’re just gonna go day by day, see how overwhelming it is, and see how the delivery goes.”
Kardashian’s husband Kanye West, meanwhile, has been much more keen on having a third child. When Ellen DeGeneres reminded him earlier this year that Kardashian didn’t want another, his response was “let’s see what happens.”
