It’s official: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting a third child via surrogate.
Kardashian essentially confirmed this news in a just-released promo for Keeping Up With the Kardashians season 14. “What happens every time I say, ‘Guess what?'” Kim asks her sister, Khloé, via FaceTime in the promo.
“You’re pregnant…or the person’s pregnant,” Khloé’s says in response, presumably talking about Kim and Kanye’s surrogate.
And that’s when the selfie maverick herself confirms it: “We’re having a baby,” she says, before the promo abruptly ends. A classic Kardashian tease!
Watch this exchange happen in the promo, below. It starts around the 47-second mark.
This is the first Kardashian-Jenner baby rumor the family has confirmed. There are reports swirling around right now that both Kylie Jenner and Khloé are pregnant with their first children. The predominant theory dominating the Internet is that the sisters will address these stories on the premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which is this Sunday (October 1) at 9 P.M. EST on E!
Kim has been open about her fertility struggles on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. She suffered from placenta accreta after her second pregnancy, a condition where the placenta and uterine wall bind too tightly.
“My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails,” Kim wrote in her blog about the condition. “My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before. My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that—it was the most painful experience of my life! They gave me a second epidural but we were racing against time, so I just had to deal.”
On an episode of the show, Kim told her friend Jonathan Cheban, “I can’t carry anymore kids…it’s the worst. It’s not going to be happy for me…I had a full break down…I give up.”
But we’re happy she didn’t give up on her desire to expand her family. Congrats to Kim and Kanye!
