Kim and Kanye reportedly will pay a surrogate $45,000 to carry their third childby Circa News

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have hired a surrogate to carry their third child, TMZ reported.

Kardashian West has a medical condition that would make another pregnancy life-threatening, according to TMZ. Placenta accreta occurs when blood vessels and other parts of the placenta grow too deeply into the uterine wall.

The couple reportedly will pay the surrogate $45,000.

Some are reporting an even higher figure.

Kardashian West has been open about her struggles to conceive for the third time on her reality show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." 

People reported that she said she had surgery to increase her chances of conceiving, and that she had asked multiple family members if they would consider being a surrogate for her and her husband.

Some were upset that the couple didn't pick them to be the surrogate.

Others were ready to defend their honor.
