After undergoing painful surgery in hopes of having more children, Kim Kardashian discovered she can no longer carry.
“So there’s a complication with my bladder [and] I had to have a catheter,” said the 36-year-old reality TV star of E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” on Sunday. “It’s so painful and frustrating. Kanye [West] and I have always talked about having more kids, but after what I went through in Paris, the urgency is even greater.”
Kim previously revealed that she was hoping to have a third child with her rapper husband, but health complications made another pregnancy near impossible. Later in the episode, she opened up to her close friend Jonathan Cheban about the latest procedure.
“I can’t carry any more kids… it’s the worst,” she said. “It’s not going to be happy for me… I had a full break down. I give up.”
During a conversation with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe, Kim announced that she and Kanye were considering surrogacy.
“After everything I went through, the surgery wasn’t successful and didn’t do anything,” she told her sisters. “Kanye was really nervous about the surgery… but I know he would want to have more kids. I feel like surrogacy is the only option for me.”
Kim also made it clear that the couple wasn’t going to give up on their quest to expand their family.
“Kanye and I are going to look into other options and see what we are comfortable with,” she added. “I’m definitely leaning towards I want to try [surrogacy]… After talking to Kanye… I always knew surrogacy was an option, now it’s my reality. Whatever is meant to be will be.”
Kim and Kanye share two children: three-year-old daughter North and one-year-old son Saint.
