Kim is reportedly expecting her third child with husband Kanye West, 40, via a surrogate, according to UsWeekly.
The magazines alleges that the surrogate is ‘three months pregnant.’
Kim’s alleged decision to hire a surrogate comes after she was diagnosed with placenta accreta during both pregnancies.
The potentially life threatening condition occurs when the placenta attaches too deeply into the uterine wall, which could lead to severe hemorrhaging during labor.
Kim and Kanye, 40, are already parents to four-year-old daughter North and 19-month-old son Saint.
