Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are So Not on the Same Page About Having More Kids
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West agree on a lot of things — from fashion ideas to music choices to parenting styles. But that could be where the agreements end.
Over the past couple of years, it’s become increasingly clear that they disagree on just as many things. For example, they apparently can’t seem to reach a consensus about the number of children they want to have. While the reality star prefers to keep their family at its current size, the Jesus Is King rapper practically wants to double it.
How many kids do Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have now?
These two share four children: North, 6, Saint, 3, Chicago, 1, and Psalm, 5 months.
Kardashian West carried and gave birth to their oldest children. But she and the ye rapper decided to have surrogates carry the last two kids after the reality star learned that she suffered from placenta accreta. It’s a condition where the placenta grows into the wall of the uterus, which can cause complications for the mother and the baby.
“Having more kids is definitely going to be a struggle,” Kim explained in a 2017 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (via People). “I’ve gone through so much with really bad deliveries that the doctors don’t feel like it’s safe for me to conceive again myself.”
She had also struggled with preeclampsia while pregnant with North.
Kardashian West does not want more than four children
The KKW Beauty mogul has repeatedly said that she’s satisfied with the number of children that she and West currently have.
“I feel so complete,” she said in a previous KUWTK episode. “I really do feel like four is the perfect number for me. I feel so full, in the best way. But I’m done.”
Kardashian West also pointed out in August during a Q&A on Instagram that she couldn’t “handle” any more than four kids even if she wanted to have more. As of writing, she’s juggling her marriage, beauty empire, shapewear line, reality show, and law career.
“I LOVE my babies so much but 4 is all I can handle with how busy I am, and each one of my babies needs so much attention,” she wrote (via Harper’s Bazaar).
How many kids does Kanye West want?
Let’s just say he wants a lot more than four. In an Oct. 28 appearance on Carpool Karaoke, West told host James Corden that he’d love to have nearly double that amount.
“[I want] seven kids,” West said in the episode. “The richest thing that you can have is as many children as possible.”
It’s not the first time that we’ve heard such a thing. Kardashian West said in a 2018 episode of her show that her husband had been “harassing” her to have more babies.
“Kanye wants to have more, though. He’s been harassing me,” she said (via People). “He wants like seven. He’s like stuck on seven.”
Though Kardashian West has shut the idea down publicly, West did tell Corden that he and his wife have seriously talked about having more children. So, it seems like anything can happen from here.
