Kim Kardashian: Is Baby #4 Really on the Way?

by at .

Kim Kardashian will never be pregnant again.

That womb-themed ship has sailed for the reality star due to a fairly serious medical condition.

But this unfortunate fact doesn't mean that Kim and husband Kanye West are necessarily done having children.

Very Serious Kimye

Far from it, in fact.

According to a new report, Kim and Kanye may add an entirely new person to their family.

Seven months after daughter Chicago was born to the stars via a surrogate, an insider tells Us Weekly that Kardashian and West have “one last embryo left" if they wish to try for a fourth kid.

The Instagram model and the rapper, of course, are already parents to little Chicago, Saint, 2, and North, 5.

This tabloid alleges that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star the volatile Grammy winner plan to have the embryo implanted in a gestational carrier “soon."

In other words: they would bring on another surrogate to carry the child to term.

Kanye West and Kids

In a previous interview with Elle Magazine, Kim made it sound like she wasn't anxious to go this route, not at this juncture at least.

“My home and my heart feel really full right now, in the best way," she told the publication, explaining in more detail:

"I don’t think I could handle more than that [four kids]. My time is spread really thin. And I think it’s important that in all couples, the mom gives the husband as much attention as the kids."

That last comment got Kim into a bit of trouble, but it isn't really our focus at the moment.

Back in April, an insider contradicted Kardashian a bit, stating simply that Kim and Kanye will absolutely have another kid.

At some point, that is.

"It's always been a question of when, not if they'll add to the family," the person said in the spring, adding at that time:

"They're confident they can cope with this because of the support they have with childcare."

We also formerly reported that Kardashian spoke to the surrogate who birthed Chicago about doing the same thing for another baby somewhere down the line.

As has been documented in the past, Kim has been told by doctors that she should not get pregnant again due to preeclampsia and placenta accreta.

This is what she wrote on Instagram three days after Chicago was born:

“Doctors said that it wasn’t safe for my - or the baby’s - health to carry on my own.

"After exploring many options, Kanye and I decided to use a gestational carrier.

"Although I have used the term surrogate in the past, a gestational carrier is actually the technical term for a woman who carries a baby that she has no biological relationship to.

"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.”

For those interested, placenta accreta is a serious pregnancy condition that occurs when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall.

Preeclampsia, meanwhile, is a pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to another organ system, most often the liver and kidneys.

In conclusion, only one question remains here:

If Kim and Kanye do have another child, what, pray tell, will they name him or her?!?
