Celebrity couple, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian has hired a surrogate mother to have their third child.
The couple who have two children, North West and Saint West, will pay over $100, 000 to have another baby after it was reported that Kim has been diagnosed with ‘placenta accreta’- a life-threatening pregnancy condition whereby blood vessels and other parts of the placenta grow too deeply into the uterus.
According to TMZ, Kim and Kanye have engaged the services of a surrogate through an agency and the agreement reads:
“– $45,000 in 10, $4,500 monthly installments
— If there are multiples, the surrogate gets $5k for each additional kid
— If the surrogate loses reproductive organs, she gets $4,000
The couple is also required to make a deposit of $68,850 with the agency.
The surrogate is required to refrain from smoking, drinking and drugs during the pregnancy. She also agrees to restrict sexual activities in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy, including foregoing sexual intercourse for 3 weeks following embryo implantation.
The surrogate cannot go in hot tubs or saunas, cannot handle or change cat litter, apply hair dye, drink more than one caffeinated beverage per day or eat raw fish.
The agreement states that Kim and Kanye ‘assume the legal and parental responsibilities for any child … that may possess any congenital or other abnormalities or defects’.”
