Rumors began swirling that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had plans to expand their family by way of surrogate in the beginning of the summer.
Kim, who has been pretty public about the situation – by way of the reality show and social media – suffers from a medical condition (placenta accreta) which doctors warned could become life-threatening should she carry another child naturally.
Reports claim the surrogate is required to refrain from smoking, drinking, and all drugs during the pregnancy. (Good idea!) She was also asked to restrict all sexual activity in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy; that included three additional weeks after the embryo was implanted. She cannot go in hot tubs or saunas, cannot handle or change cat litter, and there’s no more dying her hair or drinking more than one caffeinated beverage per-day. Oh, and no raw fish — per usual.
So, what’s the tab? Kimye has been paying the surrogate $45K cash — in $4,5000 installments, 10x throughout the pregnancy. If she delivers multiples, she’ll receive another $5K — per-kid. Collateral damages? If the surrogate loses her reproductive organs, she gets $4K. Oh, and the couple were also required to deposit more than $68K with the agency who placed them. Yikes!
