Kim’s baby count­down

The trou­bled cou­ple are back on track

Woman’s Day (NZ) - - Woman's Day This Week -

The un­stop­pable Kar­dashian em­pire is set to ex­pand once more as Kim Kar­dashian West and her hubby Kanye pre­pare for the Jan­uary ar­rival of their third baby, said to be a lit­tle girl, via a sur­ro­gate. As re­ported in Woman’s

Day in July, Kim, 36, and Kanye, 40, paid a Cal­i­for­nian woman close to $900,000 to carry their child af­ter doc­tors warned Kim – who suf­fered life-threat­en­ing con­di­tion pla­centa acc­reta while car­ry­ing both North, four, and Saint, one – against an­other preg­nancy.

The baby is a turn­ing point for the cou­ple, whose rocky mar­riage is said to finally be in a good place. “They’re start­ing to get back on track fol­low­ing a hellish few months, which caused a lot of ten­sion in their re­la­tion­ship,” a fam­ily in­sider tells. “They’re both in­cred­i­bly ex­cited – and since the rev­e­la­tion that the Duchess of Cam­bridge is also ex­pect­ing her third, Kim’s joked she’s ‘in fash­ion’ and is glad her ar­rival is due be­fore the new royal baby so her thun­der isn’t stolen.”

While the re­al­ity star is de­lighted she can be a mum again with­out hav­ing to en­dure the 30kg weight gain of her pre­vi­ous preg­nan­cies, she’s tak­ing no chances when it comes to the health of her un­born child.

Kim and Kanye have moved the sur­ro­gate into their Los An­ge­les man­sion so she can be waited on hand and foot by the cou­ple’s staff, ac­cord­ing to our in­sider.

“Kim’s splash­ing out on daily preg­nancy mas­sages, fa­cials and pri­vate yoga ses­sions. She’s also hired a chef to en­sure she’s get­ting the best nu­tri­tion pos­si­ble. Kanye was hes­i­tant about mov­ing her in at first, but Kim in­sisted it was best to keep an eye on her and show their sup­port.”

Mean­while, not ev­ery­one shares the same en­thu­si­asm for the fam­ily’s new ar­rival. Big sis­ter North is still hos­tile to­wards her younger brother, so the ex­pec­tant parents have called in the ex­perts.

“Kim’s started North in ‘sib­ling train­ing’, work­ing along­side a child ther­a­pist and be­havioural in­ter­ven­tion­ist to help break down the neg­a­tive thoughts she has about hav­ing younger sib­lings,” our in­sider tells us. “They know it’s only going to get worse once num­ber three comes along, so they’re try­ing to nip her be­hav­iour in the bud now so it’s happy fam­i­lies once her sib­ling comes along.”

Kim’s avoid­ing an­other risky preg­nancy, like she had with North (above) and baby Saint (be­low).
