Kim Kardashian who has been open about using a surrogate for her third child has now revealed that the surrogate was not used in the traditional sense.
Speaking via her app , Kim explained: “A traditional surrogate donates her egg, is artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm and then carries the baby to term.
“Since we implanted my fertilized egg in our gestational carrier, our baby is biologically mine and Kanye’s,” she confirmed. Adding: “You can either choose someone that you know or you can go through an agency, like Kanye and I did.”
The now mum-of-three was also keen to point out that although she didn’t carry the baby herself, the process was in no way ‘an easy way out.’
“It’s not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I’ve ever had,” she said.
“Our gestational carrier gave us the greatest gift one could give. The connection with our baby came instantly and it’s as if she was with us the whole time. Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true.
“We are so excited to finally welcome home our baby girl.” she added.
