UPDATE: Kim and Kanye are expecting a baby girl, according to TMZ.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their third child, but when will their bundle of joy arrive?
TMZ reports that their surrogate's due date is late January.
A source told People magazine, "The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate.”
"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 insider elaborated. “They want everything to be perfect and for the baby to be extremely healthy. They don’t want any complications and Kim is providing an ideal eating regimen and diet so everyone knows what the baby is consuming before it’s born.”
In June, TMZ reported that the power couple had hired a surrogate through an agency. According to the site, Kim and Kanye agreed to pay $45,000 in 10 installments, and a $68,850 deposit to the agency. If the surrogate is pregnant with more than one child, she gets $5,000 for any additional babies. The surrogate, who must refrain from smoking, drinking and drugs during her pregnancy, will also receive $4,000 if she loses any reproductive organs.
Along with keeping herself healthy, the surrogate is not allowed to go into hot tubs or saunas, handle or change cat litter, apply hair dye, eat raw fish, or drink more than one caffeinated drink a day. She is also required to forego sex for three weeks after embryo implantation.
In the agreement, Kim and Kanye "assume the legal and parental responsibilities for any child... that may possess any congenital or other abnormalities or defects."
Earlier this year, Kardashian expressed her desire to expand the family, saying on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” in April, "I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe. 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 okay if I wasn’t here.”
In November, Kim shared her fears about surrogacy. Watch!
