Kim Kardashian confirms baby boy expected via surrogate ‘sometime soon’

Kim Kardashian confirmed that she and husband Kanye West are expecting a baby boy via surrogate during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. 

Speaking on Watch What Happens Live on Monday night, host Andy Cohen, 50, asked Kim, 38, outright if she and husband Kanye, 41, were expecting their fourth child.  

‘We are,’ Kim confirmed while adding that the due date was ‘sometime soon’.

Kim, who was joined by her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian on the couch, told Andy: ‘It’s a boy, I think it’s been out there.’

The reality star then confessed that she let the news, which was first reported two weeks ago, slip when she got drunk at a Christmas Eve party.

She admitted: ‘I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and told some people. I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk.’

Kim gave birth naturally to five-year-old daughter North and three-year-old son Saint, and the couple’s third child Chicago was born via surrogate in January 2018. 

She battled with life-threatening condition placenta accreta during her two pregnancies and has been warned by her doctor to not carry her own baby again.

The condition occurs when all or part of the placenta remains attached to the uterine wall after childbirth.   

It was reported earlier this month that Kim and Kanye were expecting their fourth child via surrogate before Kim confirmed it on WWHL.

The couple are said to be ‘thrilled it [surrogacy] has worked out’ for a second time, with Kim particularly happy to have her ‘perfect’ combination of ‘two boys and two girls’.  

A source told E! News: ‘The surrogate is well into the pregnancy. She is due in May and everything looks good.

‘Kim and Kanye have known for awhile and are very excited. They had one male embryo left and are thrilled it has worked out. Kim always wanted four kids and having two boys and two girls feels perfect.’ 

According to TMZ, Kim and Kanye are using a new surrogate to the woman who carried their daughter Chicago.

Their first surrogate was unable to carry a second baby for the couple as she gave birth to her own child on Christmas Eve. 

Kim and Kanye are said to have just recently started to share the news of the pregnancy with family and friends, with the reality star currently planning a baby shower to celebrate.

Andy also welcomed 39-year-old Kourtney and 34-year-old Khloe on the show as the sisters appeared on WWHL for the first time together.

It also marked the Bravo clubhouse debut of Kourtney. 

Khloe wore all-white with platinum blonde hair, while Kim rocked a long-sleeved purple and white crop top with purple skirt. 

Kourtney showed off her even tan in a strapless, sleeveless black dress. 

During her first appearance on the show Kourtney played its signature question-and-answer game Plead The Fifth.

The rules were modified for Kourtney so she could ‘plead the fifth’, or refuse to answer one of three questions, and have a question instead directed to Kim or Khloe.

She was first asked to name her least favorite of Kim’s exes and took a pause to answer.

‘I just want to make sure I’m thinking of all of them,’ Kourtney quipped.

Khloe prompted her for an answer and Kourtney blurted out, ‘Kris Humphries’ who was married to Kim for 72 days before she filed for divorce.

Andy then asked Kourtney if she was Khloe if she would have stayed with Tristan Thompson who cheated on her while pregnant.

‘That’s a good one,’ Kim said.

‘I would. I think I would,’ Kourtney said as Kim pointed out that she stuck with Scott Disick ‘through a lot’.

Kim said it would have ‘been so easy’ for Khloe to leave him.

‘It’s so much harder to stay and have the whole public think you’re an idiot,’ Kim added.

Andy ribbed Khloe about being considered an idiot but she laughed it off good-naturedly.

Kourtney for her third question was asked which of her sisters was the least exciting to look at.

‘It was least interesting,’ corrected Kim who leveled the charge against Kourtney on the family’s reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Kourtney pleaded the fifth to get back at Kim and Andy asked her who she would rather be stuck in an elevator with between Taylor Swift and Drake.

‘Taylor Swift,’ Kim answered quickly.

The pop star came up earlier when Andy quizzed the sisters about their feuds with other celebrities.

‘Over,’ Kim answered when asked about the feud with Taylor.

Andy also asked about their feud status with Blac Chyna, 30, who has a two-year-old daughter Dream with their brother Rob, 31.

‘Still in a lawsuit,’ Kim replied.

Andy brought WWHL to Los Angeles as he waits to become a father for the first time also via surrogacy.

The Bravo chat show will be in Los Angeles for four weeks and scheduled guests include Matthew McConaughey, Christina Aguilera, Anne Hathaway and Judd Apatow.

Andy announced last month on WWHL that he was going to become a father with the help of a surrogate.
