Another kid could mean dollar signs for Kim Kardashian — not that we should be surprised, she did learn from the best momager in the biz! In Touch has learned that the reality star, 36, is trying to nab a spin-off show about the woman carrying her third child.
“She started filming a Keeping Up With the Kardashians spin-off focusing on the arrival of her third child via surrogate,” an insider tells In Touch exclusively. “Kim hopes the show can help other women who are struggling with fertility issues.”
Kim — who shares four-year-old North and 20-month-old Saint with husband Kanye West — has been candid about her struggle when it comes to having a third child. She was forced to turn to surrogacy after difficult pregnancies with both her children. She was vocal about having placenta accreta, which occurred when the placenta from her pregnancy with North attached to the uterine wall, making it difficult to conceive Saint (thankfully, it happened). She later turned to surrogacy and hired an unidentified woman, though her own mother volunteered for the task.
On KUWTK, she explained, “So I’ve come to the conclusion that I just want to explore surrogacy.” On a later episode, she explained how it was quickly becoming the most realistic way to achieve her dream of having a big family.
“Kanye and I have always talked about having more kids, but after what I went through in Paris, the urgency is even greater,” she previously said. “I’d just love nothing more than to expland my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe… I feel like surrogacy really is the only other option for me.”
As for her dreams of filming her reality show with the surrogate, she’s faced one small hiccup — Kanye doesn’t want to film, and doesn’t want their kids on camera either. And Kim knows the show won’t be “as relatable” without fans seeing the mom side of her. Fortunately, the insider says she doesn’t have too much to worry about.
“Kim’s upset but is confident that she’ll get her way in the end,” the insider tells In Touch. “She always does.”
