“The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate,” the source told PEOPLE. “Given her health scares in the past, Kim felt the need to hire a surrogacy agency that helped serve as the liaison in finding a healthy woman who would be a great surrogate option for her and Kanye. Both of them have been super involved in the process.”

Due to her placenta accreta, which is when the placenta doesn’t exit the body during the child’s birth and is very dangerous is not taken care of, Kardashian West had been advised to avoid carrying another baby on her own. Yet, the couple wanted to expand their family.

“I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe,” Kardashian West said on an April episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “And if for some reason I left this earth sooner than I really wanted to, then my kids would have a support system at home so that I know that they would be okay if I wasn’t here.”

At first, Kardashian West was happy with her two healthy kids, but as they got bigger, she wanted to have another baby in her life. With the third child on the way, there is no guarantee that this will be their last kid.

According to PEOPLE, West wants five or six children. Whether or not Kardashian West comes around to the idea is yet to be seen. But who knows?
