Kim Kardashian and Kanye West expecting third child, reports say

One source close to the family assured us that the entire Kardashian clan is simply over the moon about the pregnancy news.

When it comes to the financial aspect of the agreement, the source said that Kim and Kanye agreed to pay the surrogate 10 monthly installments of $4,500, totaling $45,000.

The 36-year-old reality star has been open about suffering from placenta accreta during her first two pregnancies, with 4-year-old daughter North and almost 2-year-old son Saint.

TMZ claims that the North and Saint's new sibling will arrive "at the end of January".

TMZ reported how Kardashian took advice from her doctor Paul Crane, rover the risks of a third pregnancy, having suffered from toxaemia, which are toxins in the blood from infection.

"They want everything to be flawless and for the baby to be extremely healthy".

It had been reported that they turned to a surrogate, because of Kardashian's hard medical condition during her pregnancy with daughter North and son Saint. The agreement also stated the 40-year-old rapper and his 36-year-old wife "assume the legal and parental responsibilities for any child ... that may possess any congenital or other abnormalities or defects". The reality TV star reportedly has placenta accreta.

Her realization that she would need a surrogate played out on an April episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, when Kim resorted to surgery on her uterus in an attempt to be able to carry another child, only to be disappointed.

She added, "And if for some reason I left this earth sooner than I really wanted to, then my kids would have a support system at home so that I know that they would be okay if I wasn't here".

Osbourne however, has shared her own nude snap as well - one said said was inspired by Kardashian.

For several days, the Kardashian / Jenner family has been stirring up the web.

For now, we're just happy to keep up with Kim and Kanye's expanding family. It seems like everything has gone off without a hitch so far, which must be a nice change for Kim after spending every moment of her older children's gestations worrying about everyone's health.
