Sources close to the couple explained that they had one more fertilized embryo left, but they were unable to use their original surrogate because she just gave birth to her own baby on Christmas Eve.
Though Kim and Kanye developed a positive relationship with their surrogate, they had no choice but to go elsewhere. Their baby boy is due in May.
The couple are already parents to North, Saint, and Chicago and though Kim gave birth naturally for her first two pregnancies, doctors warned that it wouldn't be safe for her to do so in the future. Chicago was born via surrogate in January 2018.
The KKW beauty mogul has been open about her husband’s desire for more children. During a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians she talk to her friend Larsa Pippen about Kanye’s ideal number.
“Kanye wants to have more kids,” she said at the time. “He's been harassing me. He wants seven. He's stuck on seven. Seven is crazy. I could never, especially in like the world we live in.
