Kim Kardashian West, an American reality television personality, socialite, actress, businesswoman and model has slammed reports that a week after welcoming baby Chicago West, she is already wanting a second surrogate baby.
According to US reports, Kim and Kanye asked their gestational carrier if she’d been willing to have another child for them after Kim, 37, hailed the last pregnancy ‘the best experience I’ve ever had.’
Taking to Twitter, Kim shared a link to the story and blasted it as ‘fake news.’
Kim had been forced to look for alternatives after being told how it would be unsafe for her to carry a third baby as she struggles with high risk conditions preeclampsia and placenta accreta. Although Kim has repeatedly referred to the woman carrying her child as ‘her surrogate’ what she actually had was a ‘gestational carrier’ – meaning her newborn daughter is biologically both hers and Kanye’s.
Speaking via her app, Kim explained:
“A traditional surrogate donates her egg, is artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm and then carries the baby to term.
“Since we implanted my fertilized egg in our gestational carrier, our baby is biologically mine and Kanye’s,” she confirmed.
She further explained that she and her hubby Kanye opted for surrogacy through an agency and not through a known person.
“You can either choose someone that you know or you can go through an agency, like Kanye and I did.”
The now mum-of-three was also keen to point out that although she didn’t carry the baby herself, the process was in no way ‘an easy way out.’
