Though there were other things that happened, last night night’s Keeping Up episode dealt a TON with Kim exploring surrogacy as she initially revealed she’s thinking about a third baby, saying:
“Lately I’ve been thinking I would love to maybe have another baby. But like I had two really difficult pregnancies and really difficult deliveries so getting pregnant again it’s something that does concern me.”
Luckily, Kardashian West and her momager, Kris Jenner got a professional opinion from OB/GYN Dr. Paul Crane to talk about Kim having baby number three! As far as the 36-year-old being able to handle a third pregnancy, Cane shared:
“Here’s what I think, your pregnancies, you had toxemia, you had a retained placenta, very traumatic, we’re always worried about the next serious complication. I think the potential fear of the whole situation is legitimate.”
The Doc continued:
“You never know that you might not have the same type of problem that might be more serious this time. You’re always taking a little bit of a chance. There are situations where retained placenta could be life and death.”
At this point, Kris chimed in to give her daughter a reality check by adding:
“You could bleed to death.”
The mother-daughter duo decided to head to fertility specialist Dr. Huang to get a second opinion, but unfortunately, the medical professional also believes Kim would have a “high-risk pregnancy”! Of course, Huang also offered other suggestions such as gestational surrogate, but the mother-of-two has her concerns!
But Kimmie was on a mission as she decided to reach out to and meet with a woman named Natalie who had a baby, then was diagnosed with breast cancer, and then used a surrogate to have twins. The brunette beauty opened up to Natalie as she admitted:
“I think my biggest fear is that if I had a surrogate, I just don’t know like, would I love them the same? That’s the main thing that I keep on thinking about, that scares me.”
The breast cancer fighter gave the PERFECT advice though as she responded:
“There’s not a day where I have any thought that my love for my kids are different, that my connection to my kids are different. You know you get to carry one and have them close to you, but the other is because you so desperately wanted them in your family.”
After being a little reassured, Kim said she’d just need to talk everything over with her husband Kanye West to see how they feel!
Once North West and Saint West‘s mommy got some peace of mind though, she shared her decision with the rest of her fam as Kim announced she “can’t carry” another baby and will “explore” surrogacy. Being the ALWAYS helpful mom she is, Kris’ immediately responded saying:
“I just think that that scares me for you. Like what if she gives birth and then grabs the baby and makes a run for it?”
Miz Kardashian West kept things positive though as relayed:
“Well I don’t think she can. Also the best thing is I could have a new baby and have no one know and live my life for a good year before we announce it.”
Well, she’s not wrong!
The Kardashian girls also had an adorable moment with Jenner’s mom, M.J., as the momager emotionally interviewed her momma on camera! In the end, everything ended up being okay, and Kris was just happy to have the interview and memories on tape!
Kim also made her case for gun control by inviting her mom, Khlo├â┬⌐ Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian to a lunch with family members of gun violence victims, set up through Everytown. The women were obviously very moved by all the stories as Kendall admitted:
“Hearing all these personal stories from the people that actually had to suffer from it, just makes me want to get more involved in Everytown. I think it would be a little irresponsible of me to take this platform for granted and I think that I need to appreciate it and use it, so I’m just gonna go for it.”
YAAAS! We’re always so happy to see someone find inspiration and stand up for what they believe in!
What are YOUR thoughts on Kim K going the surrogacy route for baby number three?!
