Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their third child, according to PEOPLE.
The magazine reported that a surrogate whom the couple hired to carry their third child is pregnant.
“The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate,” a source told PEOPLE.
“Given her health scares in the past, Kim felt the need to hire a surrogacy agency that helped serve as the liaison in finding a healthy woman who would be a great surrogate option for her and Kanye. Both of them have been super involved in the process,” the sources added.
A few months ago, TMZ reported that the couple hired a surrogate to expand their family. The news came after Kim Kardashian was diagnosed with a medical condition that would make another pregnancy life-threatening. Placenta accreta occurs when blood vessels and other parts of the placenta grow too deeply into the uterine wall.
The couple, who was married in 2014, reportedly paid the surrogate $45,000 to carry their third child, according to TMZ.
People took to Twitter to congratulate the couple.
