Back in May, Kris Jenner offered to be the surrogate for her daughter, who suffers from a potentially life-threatening condition called placenta accreta, which forced the reality star to find an alternative to becoming pregnant again herself. Despite the kind gesture, the couple declined the 61-year-old momager's offer. Now, there's a new conspiracy theory that Kim's little sister, Kylie Jenner is actually their surrogate ever since news broke last week that the 20-year-old is pregnant. But, since that's just a rumor, here's everything we know about the woman hired to carry North's future little sis.
Us Weekly reports that the woman — whose identity has yet to be revealed — lives in San Diego, just a few hours south of Kim and Kanye's home in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, the woman that the couple chose to carry their child is African-American and already has two small boys with her husband of five years.

The woman — who is in her late 20s and was referred to Kim and Kanye by an agency — has served as a surrogate before. She has reportedly even appeared in a promotional video about the process with her own family.
TMZ also reports that the surrogate is a college grad, is in great physical shape, and — fun fact! — she’s a registered Democrat.
Kim and Kanye, who are already parents to North, 4, and Saint, 19 months, reportedly agreed to fork over $45,000 in ten $4,500 monthly installments, and if there are multiples, the megastars will give the surrogate $5,000 per child, TMZ previously reported. The long list of requests from the strict parents includes: refraining from smoking, drinking, and drugs during the pregnancy as well as foregoing the use of a hot tubs or saunas. The surrogate also agreed to stay away from changing cat litter, applying hair dye, drinking more than one caffeinated beverage per day, and eating raw fish.
If the surrogate really is three months along, that means we can expect to see another heir to the Kardashian fortune make their appearance by January 2018! Congrats to the happy couple — we can't wait to meet him or her. Check out everything Kim has said about her journey to surrogacy in the video below!
