Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Are Expecting Their Third Child via Surrogate

It's official! After months of speculation, sources have confirmed to PEOPLE that the Kardashian-West family is expecting a third child via surrogate.

Reports began to circulate in June that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian had hired a surrogate to carry their third child due to Kim's previous high-risk pregnancies. Kim has been very vocal about wanting more kids but has also used her platform to speak out about her health concerns and the serious risks of having another child herself. She even wrote a detailed, heart-wrenching blog post about preeclampsia and placenta accreta, the two conditions she suffered from.

Now, Kim and her family can put all worries aside and look forward to another baby arriving. "The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate," a source told PEOPLE. "Given her health scares in the past, Kim felt the need to hire a surrogacy agency that helped serve as the liaison in finding a healthy woman who would be a great surrogate option for her and Kanye. Both of them have been super involved in the process."

I can't even begin to imagine how excited the Kardashian-West fam is, and I wish them all the best!
