If you've grown tired of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's influence on popular culture, we have some bad news for you. According to the folks at US Weekly, the surrogate the couple hired is already three months pregnant, which means Kanye and Kim will likely welcome another child into the world early next year.
Kardashian, who was previously reported to have an issue with her uterine wall that would turn a pregnancy into a life-threatening scenario, will now get to have another child without subjecting herself (or the fetus) to an increased risk of death.
The only odd thing about this report is the timeline seems a little jacked compared to what was previously shared. TMZ originally reported the couple had hired a surrogate in late June, so unless there's some new process in which you can cut pregnancy time in half, that doesn't seem to match up. Of course, it could be as simple as TMZ learning that fact in June, and not necessarily the time when they hired her.
Either way, the surrogate's life is in the process of changing as we speak. In exchange for a reported sum of $45,000 over 10 months, the surrogate has to refrain from the usual list of no-no's—smoking, drinking, drugs—in addition to avoiding other pitfalls for pregnant women. She is permitted to drink no more than one caffeinated beverage per day during the pregnancy, so hopefully she doesn't rely on coffee to get her going in the morning.
Here's hoping the surrogate has a happy and healthy pregnancy. Start brainstorming your names for the unborn child now.
