There’s a new little one heading West! Kanye and Kim Kardashian West are expecting their fourth child via surrogate, PEOPLE has confirmed. The baby on the way will join big siblings Chicago, 1 this month, Saint, 3, and North, 5½.
Although Kardashian West has made it clear that she loves being a mother, in August, a Keeping Up with the Kardashians source told PEOPLE that the 38-year-old reality star and rapper West, 41, weren’t “in a huge rush” to give their three children another sibling.
“They have absolutely talked about trying for another baby with the help of a surrogate, but nothing seems decided for sure,” said the insider, adding of the couple’s then-7-month-old daughter, who was the only one of their children to be born via gestational surrogate, “Chicago is still little, and they have time.”
They don’t seem to be in a huge rush,” the source further revealed. “They would use the same surrogate if she agrees to help them again. Kim can’t say enough kind words about the surrogate.”
A second insider told PEOPLE, “Kim and Kanye were already talking about baby No. 4 when Chicago was just a couple of days old. And they absolutely would use the surrogate again. They love her
Kardashian West herself has expressed similar thoughts. As she said in an August interview with E! News after being asked if she and her husband were planning for a fourth child, “I don’t know. I read something that it was, you know — none of that was true.
But I’ve been really open about it and talked about it on our show, so I don’t know,” the KKW Beauty guru also told the outlet. “We start filming season 16 next week, so if I think about it more and it’s gonna happen, you’ll definitely see it on the show. But as of now, no.
