Kim Kardashian West wants a pregnancy surrogate

KIM Kardashian West is considering surrogacy.  

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star is reportedly eager to have someone else carry her baby so she doesn't have to deal with the cramps and weight gain she got when she was pregnant with her and her husband, Kanye West's, 18-month-old daughter North.  

A source shared: "Kim will use a surrogate because she doesn't want to have a huge weight gain as she did while pregnant with North. Having worked very hard to get her famous body back into shape, Kim is afraid of being unable to do it again.  

"Besides the weight gain, the pregnancy was very hard for Kim's body. Constantly having cramps, and being uncomfortable made her miserable.  

"[It] will be done with the utmost discretion. The surrogate would be very carefully screened."  

However, there is no chance of her sister, Kourtney - who famously offered to carry a baby for their sister, Khloe - offering to be the surrogate for Kim because of the 34-year-old television personality's "controlling" nature.  

A source added to "No way would Kourtney carry Kim's baby!  

"She'd do it for Khloe in a heartbeat, but Kim is such a control freak, she knows it would be a nightmare."  

Meanwhile, Kim recently revealed that she was finding it "challenging" to get pregnant again.  

She said previously: "It's been more challenging to get pregnant the second time around.  

"When you're not planning it, it happens. It's just how God works. And when you want it so bad, it's not happening..."
