After a successful surrogacy journey for daughter Chicago, Kim and Kanye have been forced to change this time around.
There will be the patter of tiny feet in the Kardashian West household during 2019 but while Kim and Kanye were keen to repeat the surrogacy process that brought them their daughter Chicago, they have been fored to investigate a different route this time around.
On January 15 it will be a year since Chicago was born and there were plans to use the same surrogate mother for baby number four.
There has been a spanner thrown in to the works though, as the original surrogate is believed to having a child of their own in February and this has ruled them out of carrying another of the reality star's offspring.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had another embryo with rapper Kanye and it has always been their intention to use it to expand their family further.
A source has told People that the pair had, "hoped to work with the same gestational carrier," but after that didn't work out, they are now, "working with a second carrier now that is pregnant and will give birth in the spring.”
