Reports: Kim Kardashian, Kanye West hire surrogate for third child

TV personality Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West are hiring a surrogate to carry their third child, according to reports.

People, citing an unamed source, reported that West, 40, and Kardashian, 36, have hired a surrogate to carry their third child because of the risk posed to Kardashian for another pregnancy.

BuzzFeed News reported that the two are already expecting a third child via a surrogate, citing “a source with knowledge of the situation.”

Kardashian’s struggles with conceiving and pregnancy have been documented on her long-running E! reality TV series, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” BuzzFeed News reported that she recently wrote a blog post about her complications when carrying daughter North West, 4, and son Saint West, 18 months.

“We induced my labor and I had North soon after. Right after delivery, the placenta usually then comes out. Mine did not,” she wrote. “My placenta stayed attached inside my uterus, which is a condition called placenta accreta. This is a high-risk condition that happens when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall.“My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails. How disgusting and painful!!! ... My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that -- it was the most painful experience of my life! They gave me a second epidural but we were racing against time, so I just had to deal.”

The season 13 finale of Kardashian’s reality show with her family illustrated her interest in surrogacy. She reached out to younger sister Khloe Kardashian, 32, about surrogacy, but Khloe Kardashian ultimately decided against it.  

“I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe,” she said in the fourth episode of the 13th season. “And if, for some reason, I left this earth sooner than I really wanted to, then my kids would have a support system at home so that I know that they would be OK if I wasn’t here.”

According to TMZ, the couple found a surrogate through an agency. The surrogate will reportedly be paid $45,000 in 10 monthly installments of $4,500 and will be paid $5,000 for each additional child if there are multiples. 

Kardashian and West’s reps have not confirmed these reports.

There are still a few details some of his most devoted fans might not know.

We’ve gathered five little-known facts about the leading man. See how many you already knew: 

1. He might not have become an actor if not for “Color Purple” star Rae Dawn Chong.

While waiting tables at Maui Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, Pratt was discovered by the actress and director, who later cast Pratt in a short horror film, “Cursed Part 3,” according to the New York Post.

2. He was not originally slated to star in “Parks and Recreation” beyond one season.

Chris Pratt originally signed on as a guest star in his role as Andy Dwyer. What started as a six-episode commitment ended up with Pratt playing Dwyer for seven seasons, according to a report by the Independent.

3. He once worked for the organization Jews for Jesus.

About four weeks before being discovered in Maui, Pratt met a gentleman with Jews for Jesus, a Messianic Jewish nonprofit. The stranger inquired about Pratt’s evening plans, which included drinking and partying for Pratt. The man responded with some enlightenment he claimed to receive from Jesus, Pratt said in an Esquire interview.

“He was like, 'I stopped because Jesus told me to stop and talk to you. He said to tell you you're destined for great things.' My friends came out, and I was like, 'Hey, I'm gonna go with this guy.' I gave my soul to Jesus within, like, two days. I was stuffing envelopes for his organization, Jews for Jesus. I'm not even sure, at that age -- I was nineteen years old -- I knew what Jewish was."

4. He once raised nearly $500,000 for the Boys & Girls Club.

Among Chris Pratt’s numerous charitable acts, he once held a raffle in his hometown of Lake Stevens, Minnesota, open to his fans across the world. It promised, for a $10 ticket, a chance to win a tour of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” set. The raffle eventually raised nearly $485,000 that helped the Boys & Girls Club of Snohomish County build a teen center.

5. Before his success as a sci-fi film star, he was turned down for lead roles in two major science fiction films.

Pratt unsuccessfully auditioned for the roles of Capt. James T. Kirk in 2009’s “Star Trek” and Jake Scully in “Avatar.” Pratt said failing at those two auditions made him question whether he had the “it” factor for Hollywood, he said in an Entertainment Weekly interview. Within the same year, he broke out as a star in “Parks and Recreation.”
