During Kardashian West’s pregnancies with both North and Saint, she suffered from placenta accreta, a painful and dangerous condition in which the placenta grows into the wall of the womb and prevents it from easily detaching at the time of birth.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been open about her condition, writing on her website back in 2013 that having her placenta removed after giving birth “was the most painful experience of my life.”
Earlier this year on an episode of her reality series, Kardashian West revealed that she “can’t carry anymore kids” because a third pregnancy would be too high risk, sharing, “I feel like surrogacy is the only option for me.”
In June, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that Kardashian West and West had hired a surrogate to carry their third child. Another insider later revealed that Kardashian West was “never going to let herself get pregnant again. But she thinks her kids have grown up too fast and misses having a baby in the family.”

The second insider said that the couple had “found the perfect surrogate” and are eager to become parents again, adding, “If things work out with the surrogate, they will be thrilled. But they still have a long road to go.”
In THR cover story, Kardashian West also reveals that she hated filming KUWTK while pregnant, saying, “I looked like such a cow and I can’t stand to see those episodes.”
“I would say, ‘Try to film me more from chest up, so it looks better,’ but I look like a blob,” she shares. “I would have rather seen my belly and shot farther away.”
