“Even before Chicago was born, Kim was talking about asking the surrogate to carry her next baby,” the source told People. “She’s so happy with the whole process and thrilled with the surrogate.” The source added that Kardashian West wants to make her family even bigger, which isn’t terribly surprising given her close relationships with her own large brood of siblings.
In a candid blog post last week, Kardashian West opened up about the decision to have her third child via surrogate. After suffering medical complications during her pregnancies with 4-year-old North and 2-year-old Saint, she opted to have a surrogate carry her third child — and she made it clear that it had no impact on the instant connection she felt with Chicago.
“The connection with our baby came instantly and it’s as if she was with us the whole time,” Kardashian West wrote. “Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true. We are so excited to finally welcome home our baby girl.”
In an interview with Us Weekly, a source described Kardashian West as a “very hands-on mom” and shared that Chicago is “settling in beautifully” and “sleeping a ton for now.” (Every new mom’s dream.)
In addition to the excitement of Chicago’s birth, there’s also the fact that Kardashian West is going to become an aunt again very soon; her sister Khloé Kardashian is expecting and her sister Kylie Jenner is rumored to be pregnant too. And with the Kardashian-Jenner clan rapidly expanding, my next question is: Can we expect a reality show starring the next generation?
