In Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the 36-year-old mother of two shared her interest in adding to her family of four, and disclosed that she took serious steps to find out if it would even be possible or safe, due to her previous complications while giving birth to North West and Saint West.
In a cute scene with North, Kim shared her wish to have one more baby. “Kanye and I have always talked about having more kids, but after what I went through in Paris, the urgency is even greater,” she said, adding, “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 OK if I wasn’t here.”
Kim asked North if she would like another little brother or sister. “I need to ask you a serious, serious, serious question,” she said. “Do you think mommy and daddy should have one more baby?” in which Northie gave her response: “I want a boy and a girl!” the 3-year-old exclaimed. “That would make me so happy!”
Kim then announced to the family she would be having surgery to repair her uterus in the hopes of having a third baby. “Having more kids is definitely going to be a struggle,” she explained. “I’ve gone through so much with really bad deliveries that the doctors don’t feel like it’s safe for me to conceive again myself. This surgery is really the one last thing I can try. I want my kids to have siblings and I want to know that I did everything I could to make this happen.”
Following the surgery, Kim had bladder complications that forced the doctors to put in a catheter just so she could pee. Later the doctors determined as a whole that she would not be able to carry another baby.
“Not only has this been really painful, but now hearing that I can’t carry any more kids, it couldn’t get any worse,” she said. “I mean, f–k, like I really tried everything and I really want this and it’s just not going to happen for me.”
Kourtney Kardashian then asked if she would be willing to have a surrogate. “I’m definitely leaning more toward I want to try,” Kim replied, explaining, “After talking to Kanye, I think that I always knew that surrogacy was an option, but I didn’t think it was that realistic of an option. Now, I feel like that’s my reality.”
