A 'source' reportedly told the magazine that Kimye's baby is due "in very early May," with another 'insider' stating that Kim has "always wanted four kids." According to the same report, the celebrity couple only had one more fertilised embryo left and decided to use it.

As it stands, there are no further details and neither Kim, nor her rapper husband, has confirmed the news.

The famous pair already has three children together: five-year-old North, three-year-old Saint, and baby Chicago.

Their youngest child was born on January 15, 2018, via surrogate, something that Kim choose after suffering from placenta accreta and preeclampsia during her previous two deliveries.

However, watching another woman carry her child wasn't easy for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.

After the birth, the 38-year-old took to her website to share what it was like to use a gestational carrier, naming it "so hard".

"Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it’s the easy way out is completely wrong," she wrote. "People assume it’s better because you don’t have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint."

She continued: "There are so many reasons why a couple might need a gestational carrier or a surrogate. I'm so grateful for modern technology and that this is even possible. It’s not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I've ever had.

"Our gestational carrier gave us the greatest gift one could give. The feeling at the end of the whole process is so rewarding. The connection with our baby came instantly and it's as if she was with us the whole time. Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true. We are so excited to finally welcome home our baby girl."

In an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians last October, Kim was also seen talking to her friend, Larsa Pippen, about her future family plans, saying: "Kanye wants to have more. He's been harassing me. He wants like seven. He's like stuck on seven."

She confessed she was reluctant to follow through with this plan though, saying: "[Seven kids is] crazy. I could never, especially in like the world we live in. I've been kinda hesitant about having more kids because it literally keeps me up at night, thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this."

So, are congratulations in order...? Watch this space.
