Kim Kardashian revealed that she is expecting a baby girl on The Ellen DeGeneres Show after throwing a pink cherry blossom baby shower. Her fans asked her if she invited her surrogate and Kim explains why she didn’t on The Real. She said;
“I, um, I did not [invite the surrogate],” Kim said on The Real on Thursday. “I did introduce her to my family. I introduced her to my family earlier that day. And, you know, I just thought, I don’t know, it was like a weird decision to have to make. Of course, I would’ve wanted her to be there and be a part of it, but I hadn’t really gone that far in explaining it to my kids yet. So I have to figure that out first before they really see and then if we’re celebrating, you know, her, I just want to celebrate the baby. I think I have to explain it to my kids first and figure out how I’m going to explain it to them.”
“I love her,” she added. “I have the best relationship with my surrogate. She’s so nice. She is the perfect person to do this for my family. She’s great. She’s been amazing.”
“You could do it totally anonymously,” she said. “You could go that route and I just felt like I wanted whoever’s carrying my baby, like what if they weren’t a fan of me or my husband and what if they didn’t want to be carrying our baby? I wanted to give them that choice and be like, proud and on the same page. I wanted a relationship with her.”
“She was, you know, someone that had watched the show, not like a superfan or anything, that it would have been uncomfortable, but she had seen my struggle and seen how open I was about it. So she was really proud to do it and really excited.
“I really didn’t have a choice,” she said. “I, at this point, couldn’t get pregnant and we wanted to expand our family. So the fact that that is something that you can do, and it’s really taboo to talk about and people don’t really understand it, I mean, even throwing my baby shower, do I a baby shower? What do I do? I thought I wanted to because I wanted North to experience a party, like, ‘Something’s coming, someone’s coming. We’re going to welcome our little sister coming.’ So I think that…that really like got everyone in the mood.”
“But there are no rules. It’s like, you know, I saw online people were saying today, like, ‘Did you invite your surrogate to the shower? Is she invited?'” Kim continued. “What are the rules? There are no rules and I’m trying to figure it out. But I thought I’d want to be open about my experience because it’s what I’m going through.”
“I was in the mindset of, ‘I’m not going to do a baby shower,'” Kim said on The Real. “And all of a sudden, like five days before the baby shower, I was like, ‘I have to do it.’ Cherry blossoms, it’s what I wanted. We had to rent off these cherry blossoms. They pulled it off in four or five days…and it was so beautiful and it was just a tea for my friends and it was beautiful. I’m so glad that I did it.”
“It is an interesting transition. She is so excited it’s a girl,” Kim said about North. “She is so excited. I think my son’s gonna have a harder time with it, I don’t know why. I hope he doesn’t. I tell her every night, ‘You know, when you’re coming in my room and it’s now two in the morning, you know I might be in Baby Sister’s room feeding her, so you can’t, you know, I’m not always gonna be here.’ And she’s like, ‘I know, Mom.’ Let’s see. Let’s see.”
Aww,North is going to be a big sis for the second time. Congrats to the West family.
