Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting baby number three! The happy couple is yet to formally announce the news, but a number of outlets have reported that they have enlisted the help of a surrogate in carrying their third child, and that surrogate is pregnant, due in January 2018. So, who is Kim Kardashian's surrogate?

Who Is Carrying Kim And Kanye's Baby?

Kim and Kanye have decided to keep the identity of their surrogate secret, though it's been reported that the San Diego-based woman is in her late 20s and has gone through the surrogacy process before.

Don't expect the parents-of-two to leak her name any time soon. "The best thing is I could have a new baby and have no one know and live my life for a good year before we announce it," Kim once said on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

According to TMZ, we do know some information about Kim and Kanye's surrogate's lifestyle while she's carrying the couple's baby.

Per an agreement between the couple and the woman, she is set to make $45,000 in 10 monthly installments. She will get an additional $5,000 for every additional child — meaning if she carries twins, she'll get $50,000, triplets will be $55,000 and so on. The surrogate must not smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, do drugs, go in hot tubs or saunas, handle cat litter, dye her hair, drink more than one caffeinated beverage daily, or eat raw fish during the pregnancy.

Why Did Kim Kardashian Hire A Surrogate?

Kim documented her struggles with her previous two high-risk pregnancies on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. When pregnant with daughter North, Kim suffered from preeclampsia, and after labor with both North and Saint, Kim suffered from placenta accreta. Because of these two experiences, Kim was warned by her doctors that it would be dangerous to her health and the health of her unborn baby to carry a third child.

Still, she admitted on KUWTK, "After talking to Kanye, I think that I always knew that surrogacy was an option, but I didn't think it was that realistic of an option," later adding, "Now, I feel like that's my reality."
