Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hired a surrogate to have their third child, TMZ reports.
Kim has placenta accreta, a serious pregnancy condition that makes carrying a child life-threatening, so Kimye worked with an agency to find a surrogate. They agreed to pay the following:
- $45,000 in 10, $4,500 monthly installments
- If there are multiples, the surrogate gets $5k for each additional kid
- If the surrogate loses reproductive organs, she gets $4,000
- Kim and Kanye are also required to deposit $68,850 with the agency.
The surrogate must refrain from smoking, drinking and drugs during the pregnancy. She also agrees to restrict sexual activity in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy, including foregoing sexual intercourse for three weeks following embryo implantation. The surrogate cannot go in hot tubs or saunas, handle or change cat litter, apply hair dye and consume more than one caffeinated beverage per day or eat raw fish.
Per the agreement, Kim and Kanye "assume the legal and parental responsibilities for any child ... that may possess any congenital or other abnormalities or defects."
