Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West have reportedly taken the next step to expand their brood — without Kardashian getting pregnant herself.
The 36-year-old "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star and the rapper will hire a surrogate to carry their third child, according to several reports out Wednesday.
Per TMZ, the couple has hired a gestational surrogate through an agency and agreed to pay her $45,000 in 10 monthly installments of $4,500. Stipulations about multiples, the carrier losing reproductive organs and what she is and isn't allowed to do following embryo implantation and during the pregnancy — such as refraining from smoking, drinking, drugs, restricting intercourse, avoiding hot tubs and limiting caffeine and avoiding certain food — are also in the agreement. (It should be noted that most of those recommendations are usually given to pregnant women anyway.)
