As you probably already heard, Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian are expecting their third child this coming January. Because Kim K suffers from a condition called placenta accreta, she and Yeezy hired a surrogate to carry the newest addition to their family—which TMZ reveals will be a baby girl. They’ve also unearthed some details about the surrogate.
According to the site, the surrogate is an African American in her 20s, and so is her husband of five years. They’ve got two small boys together, so she’s familiar with the ins and outs of delivery. TMZ also says the woman, who’s a registered Democrat, is also in great shape, which should theoretically help the pregnancy run smoothly.
Earlier this week, TMZ claimed Kanye and Kim paid the woman $45,000 for her services as their surrogate, and that they’ve prohibited her from smoking, drinking or doing drugs during her pregnancy. She’s also not allowed to consume raw fish, use hair dye or be in hot tubs.
Kim K and Kanye welcomed their first child, North West, back on June 15, 2013. Kim gave birth to their second child, a son named Saint West, on Dec. 5, 2015. We wish Kanye and Kim nothing but the best luck as they await the arrival of the newest addition to their family.
