A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to BuzzFeed News Wednesday that Kim and Kanye will have their fourth child via surrogate.
Kim and Kanye also have daughter North, 5, and son Saint, who is 3.
The couple chose to use a surrogate last time due to medical complications Kim experienced with her first two pregnancies.
As a result of giving birth for a second time, the placenta accreta created a hole in her uterus. Despite surgery to repair it, the procedure wasn't successful and Kim was told that carrying another child was just too risky.
And after her experience in Paris, where she was robbed at gunpoint in her apartment, Kim decided to explore the possibility of using a surrogate.
BuzzFeed News has reached out to the family's reps for more information.
