Is Kim Kardashian's surrogate pregnant with twins? A rep for the reality star would not confirm or deny a new report. Kanye West's spokesperson did not comment.
It was reported last week that Kardashian and West hired a surrogate after a doctor concluded it would be too risky for the reality star to carry a child for the third time. Much of the recent season of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," which concluded earlier this month, focused on Kardashian's desire to explore surrogacy. Now, days after it was said a surrogate was indeed hired, the new cover of Life & Style alleges the unidentified woman is pregnant with Kardashian and West's twins.
"Both Kim and Kanye are overjoyed that the couple's surrogate is pregnant with twins," the tabloid quotes a so-called "insider" as saying in its story. The article is filled out with purported details about the arrangement, and even contends the surrogate miscarried earlier this year, leading them to "double their chances for round two" by implanting two embryos. Though it was supposedly successful, the gossip magazine maintains, "The twins' very existence is being kept on the down-low" for now.
Gossip Cop would be remiss not to point out that Life & Style has a spotty track record when it comes to reporting on Kardashian and West, and that's putting it nicely. We have debunked dozens of the outlet's inaccurate stories, many of which falsely reported the couple was divorcing. We do know, however, that Kardashian intended to go down the surrogacy route, and there is an increased chance for twins when more than one embryo is implanted.
We investigated with our sources, who are declining to comment at this time. A rep for Kardashian point-blank states she is "not engaging" on this subject. And West's spokesperson has not responded to multiple requests for confirmation or denial. Gossip Cop will continue to monitor the situation closely, and we'll have updates as appropriate. UPDATE: Contrary to this report, Kardashian and West's surrogate is pregnant with just one baby.
Gossip Cop cannot come to a verdict either way.
