According to sources close to the family, the couple has one last embryo left and the sex is said to be male.
The celebrity couple is preparing to have the embryo implanted into a gestational carrier, making it the second time the couple will choose this alternative method for birthing their third child, Chicago.
It would be recalled that Kim suffered from preeclampsia and placenta accreta when she was pregnant with her daughter North and son Saint. Kim had previously opened up about the procedure in January, a few days after Chicago was born stating:
“Doctors said that it wasn’t safe for my or the baby’s health to carry on my own. After exploring many options, Kanye and I decided to use a gestational carrier.
Although I have used the term surrogate in the past, a gestational carrier is actually the technical term for a woman who carries a baby that she has no biological relationship to. A traditional surrogate donates her egg, is artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm and then carries the baby to term. Since we implanted my fertilized egg in our gestational carrier, our baby is biologically mine and Kanye’s”
