Kim Kardashian claps back at rumours she wants another baby 'soon'
Aside from their penchant for naming their children after weather reports, the Kardashians have been doing a stellar job in the baby department lately.
Kim Kardashian welcomed her third child, Chicago, via surrogate back in January, Kylie Jenner gave birth to her first child, Stormi Webster a month later, and in April, Khloé Kardashian welcomed a baby girl in the midst of all the cheating allegations surrounding her beau and baby daddy, Tristan Thompson.
Now, while you'd think that the press would leave Kim alone to enjoy these precious few months with her newborn, it appears that they have other ideas: speculating about when she's going to have her next child.
Kim and Kanye have three children - North West, Saint West and seven-month-old Chicago West - however, last week, a source at US Weekly claimed that the couple hopes to have another child "soon".
"[They] have one last embryo left," the source continued, before adding that the sex is male - which would mean that Kimye would, in theory, have two girls and two boys.
But if you were hoping for more Kardashian spawn, it looks like your hopes are dashed - at least for now. In an interview with E! News, the reality television star put the record straight. "None of that was true," she asserted. "I've been really open about it and talked about it on our show. We start filming season 16 next week, so if I think about it more and it's gonna happen, you'll definitely see it on the show. But as of now, no. I gotta live with three for a second. If it were up to my husband we'd have like seven. Maybe four is all I can handle. I don't know, maybe three is all I can handle"
In the past, Kim has said that while she's open to having a fourth child, it's a decision that she and her husband will make privately, and at the right time. "My home and my heart feel really full right now, in the best way," she said, before stating that a fourth baby would definitely be the last. "I don't think I could handle more than that. My time is spread really thin. And I think it's important that in all couples, the mum gives the husband as much attention as the kids."
This decision is undoubtedly influenced by the complications the 37-year-old experienced while pregnant with her first two children. Explaining her reasoning for going down the surrogate route with Chicago on her app, she stated:
"Doctors said that it wasn’t safe for my — or the baby’s — health to carry on my own. After exploring many options, Kanye and I decided to use a gestational carrier. A traditional surrogate donates her egg, is artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm and then carries the baby to term. Since we implanted my fertilised egg in our gestational carrier, our baby is biologically mine and Kanye’s."
Only when you're ready, Kim!
