Kim Kardashian West is currently expecting her third child with Kayne West — their first one via surrogate.
The reality star is using a surrogate due to placenta accreta, a condition in which placenta is hard to remove after birth.
Kardashian West opened up about the surrogacy experience in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight.”
She said that, “anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong” and it is “so much harder to go through.”
For the past decade, Kim Kardashian West hasn’t been able to hide much from fans. Thanks to “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and her general openness, fans have an inside look into the highs and lows of the star’s life. Lately, that includes Kardashian West’s use of a surrogate to grow her family.
The reality star only recently confirmed that she and husband Kanye West were using a surrogate to carry their third child. (The rumor was also confirmed in a teaser for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”) That said, she’s still kept pretty quiet on the process, not even sharing photos from her cherry blossom baby shower. And there may be a reason for it.
In an exclusive interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Kardashian West opened up about her experience with surrogacy and the struggles she’s encountered.
“You know, it is really different,” Kardashian West told “ET.” “Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong. I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control. And, you know, obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a good bond and relationship with, but it is still … knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not, you know, my baby now, it’s hard for me. So, it’s definitely a harder experience than I anticipated just in the control area.”
