Kim Kardashian is a mother of four adorable kids whom she shares with her ex-husband Kanye West. Now, fans wonder how old the reality star was when she started her family. Kim and Kanye first started dating in 2011 after several years of friendship. Over the course of their decade-long relationship, the former couple welcomed four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. So, what was Kim Kardashian’s age when she started having kids? Keep reading to find out the details!
Kim Kardashian Had Five Surgeries After Two Pregnancies
The Kardashians star was 33 years old when she welcomed her first child, North West, into the world in 2013. Kim Kardashian gave birth to North via natural pregnancy yet Saint was conceived via IVF. However, for her two younger kids, she opted for surrogacy. The mother of four underwent five surgeries in a year to correct her health issues after the first two pregnancies. However, the doctors didn’t allow her to bear any more children via IVF due to possible complications.
The SKNN owner explained, “They replied that they would not even try to put an embryo inside me; it would be illegal. But I would go through this one more time to have such wonderful children!”
Kim Kardashian’s Eldest Daughter Was Born Before Due Date
Back in 2013, the reality personality admitted that she started having serious complications mid-pregnancy. She had a rare condition called preeclampsia as explained in Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s official YouTube clip. It causes issues like swelling, high blood pressure, and severe kidney damage. As per medical experts, this condition is dangerous for both the mother and the child. Moreover, it cannot be cured completely. Although the doctors were able to navigate the pregnancy without severe complications, North West was born six weeks before the due date.
Despite this risky experience, Kim wished to have more children with her former husband. After she regained her health, the SKIMS owner started trying for her second pregnancy. However, as she couldn’t conceive naturally, she opted for IVF to give birth to her son Saint West. After her son was born, Kim was still left with two embryos and opted for surrogacy bringing Chicago and Psalm West into the world.
Kim Kardashian Kept The Surrogate’s Name A Secret
Although Kim Kardashian was initially skeptical of surrogacy and wanted to carry the kids on her own. However, she understood that this would risk both her and the kids. The 42-year-old was grateful for the surrogate mother and said, “I am extremely grateful for her kindness and dedication. I will definitely keep her name a secret; I do not want people to know about her.”
The former couple chose to keep the surrogate mother’s name a secret. Yet, it was revealed that they found her through a special agency and the fee for the surrogate was $45,000.
