Kim Kardashian West still hasn’t returned to the public eye following her horrific robbery in Paris.
But a new sneak peek clip from Keeping Up With the Kardashians reveals that before the robbery, she was thinking about having another baby.
In the clip, Kardashian West tell her mom, Kris Jenner, who appears shocked at the news, “So I’ve come to the conclusion that I just want to explore surrogacy.”
Those who have followed Kardashian West’s pregnancies shouldn’t be that surprised by the news. She’s never been shy about her love and desire to be a mom, but she had a really tough time with both her pregnancies. She had preeclampsia, which causes dangerously high blood pressure, during her first pregnancy, and placenta accreta, which causes the placenta to get too firmly attached to the uterus, during both. During her second pregnancy, she was even warned to be prepared for the possibility that doctors might need to remove her uterus. On top of all of that, she’s struggled with fertility issues.
So for Kardashian West to have more kids, a surrogate doesn’t seem like a terrible idea. Plus, it has the added bonus of allowing her to skip being pregnant, which she has openly admitted she hates.
Episodes of KUWTK that are currently airing were shot before the robbery, though, so it’s possible that Kardashian West, who has been keeping a seriously low profile, might have changed her mind or decided to put off trying for another baby. She hasn’t yet addressed the robbery on the show, and it’s not clear if she ever will.
