Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West have reportedly agreed to hire a surrogate to have their third child.
According to TMZ, the couple arrived at the decision since discovering that Kim suffered from placenta accreta – a condition that makes another pregnancy life-threatening.
The E! reality star and the Grammy-winning musician who are already parents to a daughter and a son, will be paying the surrogate $113,850.
“Kim and Kanye have found a surrogate through an agency and agreed to pay the following: — $45,000 in 10, $4,500 monthly installments — If there are multiples, the surrogate gets $5k for each additional kid — If the surrogate loses reproductive organs, she gets $4,000 Kim and Kanye are also required to deposit $68,850 with the agency.
“The surrogate is required to refrain from smoking, drinking, and drugs during the pregnancy. She also agrees to restrict sexual activities in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy, including foregoing sexual intercourse for 3 weeks following embryo implantation. The surrogate cannot go in hot tubs or saunas, cannot handle or change cat litter, apply hair dye, drink more than one caffeinated beverage per day or eat raw fish.
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, ” TMZ reports states.
It would be recalled that in the Nov. 13, 201, episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim who celebrated her third wedding anniversary said she would love to have another baby.
So, she talked to OB/GYN Dr. Paul Crane to weigh her options, given her complicated pregnancies and deliveries. Because she suffered from toxemia and a retained placenta, which was “traumatic” on her body, the odds of her having another difficult pregnancy are higher, Dr. Crane had explained.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian launched her beauty line, KKW Beauty, at their mansion in Los Angeles yesterday. She showed off her curves in a form-fitting shoulderless Vivienne Westwood white dress.
Kim was joined by her husband Kanye West, daughter North, mom Kris Jenner, amongst other makeup artists and friends.
The beauty brand is estimated to net Kim $14 million in sales within minutes.
