Kim Kardashian and Kanye West just welcomed a daughter, Chicago West, via surrogate last week, but the reality star is already considering undergoing the process again for another child.
"Even before Chicago was born, Kim was talking about asking the surrogate to carry her next baby," a source told People.
"She’s so happy with the whole process and thrilled with the surrogate,” the insider added.
Kim has previously opened up about how well she gets along with her surrogate, who still remains anonymous. "I love her," Kardashian told The Real in November 2017. "I have the best relationship with my surrogate. She's so nice. She is the perfect person to do this for my family."
The Wests were present in the delivery room when the surrogate gave birth to Chicago on January 15. Apparently, Kanye and the surrogate's husband were even "bonding" in the delivery room, the insider added. Kim was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with the newborn.
The mother of three decided to use a surrogate mother after suffering from health issues in her previous pregnancies, like preeclampsia (which causes high blood pressure) and placenta accreta (in which the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall). Doctors even advised her that having another natural pregnancy would not be safe for her health or the baby's. So she decided to use a gestational carrier.
Kim wants a big family. After giving birth to North, in 2013, she told Ellen DeGeneres that she "always wanted about six" kids. "After having her, I would have a million," she said. Kanye is on the same page—he "loves kids and wants a lot," a source told People.
