The 37-year-old chose surrogacy after suffering from a condition called placenta accrete. She has also been spreading awareness about the condition on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“Being a mom is the most important job I have,” wrote the business woman
“I’ve come to the conclusion in my mind that I can’t carry another one. So now I want to explore surrogacy,” Kardashian West told her mother, Kris Jenner, earlier on the show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The couple paid nearly $70,000 to a surrogacy agency to find a surrogate to carry the celebrity child. The surrogate was reportedly paid around $45,000 for 10 months of carrying out the pregnancy and $5,000 extra for a possible twin or triplet, reported USA Today.

Kim told her sister Kourtney, “After talking to Kanye, I think I always knew that surrogacy was an option, but I didn’t think it was that realistic of an option, and now I feel like that’s my reality. I feel like surrogacy really is the only other option for me,” according to E!Online.
Since then the social media superstar’s followers have showered love to the new mom on social media.
