Kim and Kanye did not broadcast their hopes of having another child–somewhat unusual for the spotlight-loving duo. Apparently, they had been contemplating the move for some time.

“They have absolutely talked about trying for another baby with the help of a surrogate, but nothing seems decided for sure,” an inside source told People Magazine.

Surrogacy Plans

The parents-to-be confirmed that the baby will be welcomed via gestational surrogate. Chicago West, their youngest, was also born via surrogate. Keeping Up With the Kardashians followed the surrogacy, giving viewers insight into the process.

The anonymous source above also dished that the Kardashian-Wests hoped to use the same surrogate again. “They would use the same surrogate if she agrees to help them again. Kim can’t say enough kind words about the surrogate.”

Their new baby boy should arrive in mid-May. He’ll join one-year-old Chicago, Saint (3), and North (5) as the youngest member of the sprawling Kardashian clan.

Will Kylie Follow in Her Sister’s Footsteps?

Could we be looking at another influx of Kardashian babies next year? Kim’s youngest sister Kylie is reportedly thinking about having another baby of her own in 2019. Chicago West, Stormi Webster (Kylie’s daughter), and True Thompson (Khloe’s daughter) were all born within a few months of each other.

“Kim having another baby this year is heavily influencing her other sisters and their baby plans,” a different anonymous source told E! News. “They all loved being pregnant at the same time and everyone wants all of the kids to be close in age. Everyone jokes about having another round of ‘triplets’ all the time.” 

Kim and Kanye’s baby will be the 10th grandchild in the family. At this rate, it’s possible that Kardashians will take over the globe before 2030.
