News of their impending fourth child recently broke and sources say this one is via surrogate as well. The couple had their third child, Chicago West, in January of this year via a surrogate.

A source told E!, “The surrogate is well into the pregnancy. She is due in May and everything looks good.”

The couple will be using a different surrogate than the one they used for Chicago. A source told E! that the surrogate for Chicago is pregnant on her own and thus the couple picked a new one for their process.

Kim previously revealed her thoughts about her experience with surrogacy on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, “This experience, going into it, I really didn’t know what to expect, ’cause I don’t really know anyone that’s gone through this. It was definitely not as easy as I thought it would be emotionally, but it’s so worth it and our surrogate is such a nice person.”
