Rumours floated around all summer that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hired a surrogate to carry their third baby. The couple kept mum on the reports — no confirming or denying — until September 28, when a Keeping Up With the Kardashians promo answered the question for us. “We’re having a baby,” Kim told Khloé over FaceTime in the teaser.
Since then, Kim’s opened up more about her surrogate. No, we don’t know her identity (and probably never will), but Kim did reveal that having a surrogate is harder than both of her pregnancies combined. “Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong,” she said. “I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control.”
And on The Real‘s Thursday (November 16) episode, we learned something else about Kim’s surrogate: Kim didn’t invite her to her baby shower last weekend. Don’t worry, though, because the reason isn’t shady. There’s no bad blood. In fact, Kim actually says she has the “best relationship” with her surrogate and that she’s the “perfect person” to do this for her family. It’s just that Kim hasn’t fully explained the situation to her children, North and Saint, and didn’t want things to be awkward.
“I did not [invite the surrogate],” she said on the show. “I did introduce her to my family. I introduced her to my family earlier that day. And, you know, I just thought, I don’t know, it was, like, a weird decision to have to make. Of course, I would’ve wanted her to be there and be a part of it, but I hadn’t really gone that far in explaining it to my kids yet. So I have to figure that out first before they really see and then if we’re celebrating, you know, her. I just want to celebrate the baby. I think I have to explain it to my kids first and figure out how I’m going to explain it to them.”
Watch her explain this for yourself, below:
Kim is receiving some flak on social media for this, but as The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon says in this video, she had to do what made her (and her surrogate) the most comfortable. There isn’t a roadmap for situations like this.
