Kim Kardashian West is now expecting her third child with Kayne West - their first one via surrogate.
'So, it's definitely a harder experience than I anticipated just in the control area'. 'Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong'.
According to TMZ, Kim and her rapper husband's only involvement is receiving regular medical updates on the surrogate and the health of their growing tot. Kardashian revealed in April of this year that she was advised by doctors not to get pregnant due to the complications she suffered with placenta accreta during her last two pregnancies.
Initially assuming that things would be breeze compared to the taxing issues she faced during that time, the 37-year-old socialite explains that her surrogacy experience has been much more hard than she once thought.
She said: "I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control".
In an exclusive interview with "Entertainment Tonight", Kardashian West opened up about her experience with surrogacy and the struggles she's encountered.
'She was unboxing the My Little Pony ColourPop collection, and I thought to myself, 'I wish I was recording this, ' because her reaction was so amusing.
It's no secret that Kim had hard pregnancies with 4-year-old daughter North and 1-year-old son Saint.
"She spoke to the surrogate, who said she'd been feeling the same. So when I compare myself to Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Howard Hughes, David Stern, Michelangelo, da Vinci, Jesus, whoever it is, I say these are my heroes, these are people that I look up to, this is the type of impact I want to make on the Earth", West said during the chat.
"I am blessed that I am able to do this, and technology is the way that it is that we can do this", she told the outlet.
In terms of what has made things harder with the forthcoming tot, Kardashian cites lack of control as her biggest issue.
