The West – Kardashian brood is about to grow by one, as Kim Kardashian’s surrogate has gone into labour.
Kourtney Kardashian broke the news to unsuspecting mum Kris Jenner, as the momager filmed a special US Mother’s Day on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Ellen surprised Kris, 63, with a visit from Kourtney, 40, and six of her grandchildren – Mason, Penelope, Reign, North, Saint and Chicago.
However, Kim, 38, didn’t accompany her kids – but she had a very good reason. Ellen said: ‘Kourtney, Kim was supposed to be here’, with the eldest Kardashian explaining: ‘So, my mom doesn’t even know this, but Kim’s surrogate went into labour. So she’s at the hospital.’
This is the couple’s fourth child, a baby boy, and their second via surrogate. During Kim’s pregnancy with North, she was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia and placenta accreta – a condition where the placenta doesn’t detach from the wall of the womb properly.
