Kim Kardashian-West is trying to have a child without a surrogate. The reality star tells Matt Lauer of TODAY that she and husband Kanye West are currently not taking the doctor’s recommendations as they pertain to family expansion.
“They say if you’ve been trying [to have a baby] for a year, then you usually need a little bit of help,” says Kim. “I had a tough delivery, so I understand what my challenges are. I mean, I’m seeing the best doctors and I’m trying to do everything I can to make that happen.”
Kim further explains, “They have recommended to me to get a surrogate, and I would like to hold out a little bit longer, and still try. I still have hope, so I’m just going to keep on trying. Never say never. I mean, we haven’t talked about adopting.”
It was just a few months ago that Kim told media that she and Kanye were making every effort to have another child. “We’ve really been trying for another kid,” said the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. “More kids can’t come soon enough!”
Kim and Kanye West have one child, North, together. She will celebrate her second birthday in June.
