Kim Kardashian and her rapper husband Kanye West have hired the service of a surrogate mother for third child, TMZ reports.
The couple, according to the report said to have come to this conclusion after Kim suffered a life-threatening sickness known as ‘placenta accrete’ and that the deal will cost them $113,850.
Placenta accrete is a health condition where the placenta attaches too deep in the uterine wall but it does not penetrate the uterine muscle.
According to a report by TMZ, the couple’s sourced their surrogate through an agency and are willing to pay $45,000 in instalments over 10 months.
The initial deposit to be paid by the couple to the surrogate’s agency is said to be a whopping $68,850.
TMZ also states that, if the pregnancy produces more than one child, the surrogate will receive an additional $5k per extra child ($5k extra for twins, $10k extra for triplets and so forth).
If the surrogate loses reproductive organs during the process, she will be paid $4k, it is reported.
The surrogate is however expected to follow some rules and guidelines which include; she must be employed, doesn’t smoke, drink, take drugs and must not have sexual intercourse following three weeks of embryo implantation.
Khloé, the sister to kim who had earlier promised to be the surrogate recently made known that she has been having difficulty getting pregnant for her husband.
