Kim Kardashian West Fears Surrogacy but Admits to Being Unsure ‘If My Body Can Handle’ Another Pregnancy

Posted on


Kim Kardashian West wants to grow her brood to three — but that doesn’t mean she isn’t beset by fears over the risks involved.

The reality star is considering surrogacy, she revealed in a sneak peek at Sunday’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but she admits she’s not so sure how the process would work.

Chatting with sister Kourtney Kardashian, Kardashian West explained, “Obviously, I do want to have my own baby, you know, but I feel like I truly don’t know if my body can handle it one more time.”

Kardashian West suffered high-risk pregnancies with both of her two children (daughter North, 3, and son Saint, 11 months), specifically preeclampsia, a potentially dangerous condition in which a woman’s blood pressure skyrockets during pregnancy.

“You should talk to somebody, maybe, who’s used a surrogate,” suggests her sister, 37.

Despite its obvious advantages over a potentially dangerous pregnancy, Kardashian West, 36, confesses that she has a “lot of fears” and “unanswered questions” about surrogacy.

“Like I just don’t have the information on it,” she says. “I don’t know how I’m going to feel about it. I never have given it that much thought. It is something that does concern me.”

Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on E!
