Kim and Kanye hired a surrogate to carry their third child

News reported that the couple has chosen their surrogate, while TMZ claimed the couple had agreed to pay the woman more that $113,000 to carry their child.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly found a surrogate to help expand their brood - and they're paying her a lot of money.

Kim Kardashian West has won praise from experts after revealing that she doesn't use her phone around her children. "It's just too risky for her. Kanye was initially the one pushing for baby No. 3".

In fact the 36-year-old is "terrified" about daughter North, 4, and son Saint, 1, growing up in a digital world and even sought professional advice on how to protect them when they start going online in the future.

The surrogate is required to refrain from smoking, drinking, and drugs during the pregnancy.

Carolyn Bunting, General Manager of Internet Matters, commented on Kim's revelations: 'No-one is more aware of the impact social media can have than Kim Kardashian West, whose pictures are shared millions of times over. The reality star is already mum to North, four and Saint, one but would like to add to her family by having baby number three.

Kim and Kanye are also required to deposit United States dollars 68,850 with the agency. After talking to Kanye I think I always know that surrogacy was an option, but I didn't that it was that realistic of an option, and now I feel like that's my reality. That led her to boost security measures and to take a temporary pause from public engagements and prolific social media postings.

Late previous year, Kanye cancelled a December tour and was hospitalised after an apparent mental health breakdown.
