AceShowbiz - Having four children apparently isn't enough for Kanye West. Words on the streets are that the rapper is pushing his wife Kim Kardashian to have fifth child via surrogate. Radar Online was the first to break this story.
According to the publication, Kanye is "pushing hard for this, and he's been very vocal about wanting to get things started right away." As for the reason, it's said that it is because the Yeezy founder "wants as many blood heirs to inherit his legacy, he says it's no coincidence that he and Kim got back on track after the last baby came into their lives."
Kim and Kanye, who got married in 2014, already share four children together: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm. While the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star gave birth to their two eldest children by herself, she started switching to surrogacy for their third and fourth child due to her pregnancy and fertility struggles. She has talked about this issue several times before, including in media interviews and on the E! Series.
Most recently, she opened up about going through IVF and revealed that she had five surgeries to try to repair the internal damage she suffered during childbirth. In a video for her shapewear line Skims, she said that she had a condition called "preeclampsia or toxemia, which is basically when the mom's organs start to shut down. The only way to get rid of that is to deliver the baby."
However, instead of coming out, the placenta grew inside her uterus. Despite the risk, Kim decided to freeze her eggs because she wanted to have more children. "I was able to get pregnant through that with my son Saint, and then I had two embryos left. I had the same condition, same awful delivery that I had with my first daughter," she said. "After that, I had to have five different operations within a year and a half to fix the damage that all of that did on the inside."
This resulted in her doctors refusing to put an embryo in her because of the risks. Thus, she decided to turn to surrogacy. "I'm so thankful for my beautiful kids, no matter how they came to me they came to me," she said, adding that she would go through the "same pain and back" all over again for her kids.
