By using a surrogate this time around, Kim will not have to worry about recovery time or any more scary medical emergencies due to a pregnancy. "She'll be hands-on from the beginning," the source explained.
Though both the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the 40-year-old rapper will be in the delivery room, the birth will not be filmed for their E! reality show. In fact, the surrogate's privacy has been extremely important to the husband-and-wife duo, which a source also told ET back in September.
"The surrogate’s comfort and safety is incredibly important to [Kim and Kanye]," the source told ET, adding that the couple might sneak into the hospital to avoid paparazzi following them.
Ever since they announced they were expecting, fans have been curious to know what this third baby will be named, as the Kardashian-Jenner clan is full of unique, bold monikers. Even though the couple have openly discussed baby names in the past, even commenting on North's name before she was born, this time around, they're keeping quiet on the matter.
"If they've chosen a name, they're keeping it very private," the source revealed. "They may not even have one yet -- and might not choose something until they meet the baby!"
"It's a very exciting time in the Kardashian home, but there's a lot going on. [Kim's] not going to have all the 'babysitters' she's used to having because her sisters are all so busy right now," the source noted.
"Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong," the KUWTK star said. "I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control. And, you know, obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a good bond and relationship with, but... knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not my baby now, it's hard for me. So, it's definitely a harder experience than I anticipated just in the control area."
