Will Chrissy Teigen Ever Be Kim Kardashian’s Surrogate?
Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen have a friendship that we all envy. The pair are regularly seen together and often compared to gal pals Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox in that they have become attached at the hip.
The two support each other at public events and are regularly questioned by the press about their friendship. Nothing says friendship more than Chrissy’s willingness to endure 9 -months of pregnancy though, like the time when she offered to be a surrogate for Kim’s future children.
Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy problems
During both of Kim’s pregnancies, she experienced some pretty, serious complications including suffering from a condition called placenta accreta.
What is this condition? Placenta accreta is when the placenta attaches much too deeply into the uterine wall and is difficult to expel after delivery. The situation can lead to severe bleeding, and even future infertility or death.
When Kim and Kanye decided they wanted their family to continue to grow. It seemed surrogacy might be their only option. Thus far, they have used two surrogates for their daughter Chicago and son Psalm.
Chrissy Teigen says she would surrogate for Kim Kardashian
Talk about friendship! Chrissy loved pregnancy and tells reporters that she “would be Kim’s surrogate in a second.” Since she really enjoyed the “pregnancy process” and delivered healthy babies Luna and Miles, she feels like she’d be able to help Kim out with carrying her child, should the star decide to have any more children. This is an incredibly moving offer, considering Chrissy had her own fertility issues in conceiving her two children. Perhaps this is why she understands just how emotional and heartbreaking trying to have a family can be.
Chrissy Teigen loved pregnancy and is an advocate for moms
Chrissy often takes to social media to encourage moms, or discuss pregnancy and postpartum issues. So it comes as no surprise that the star is willing to hop back into her maternity pants for her good friend. Fans of the Kim/Chrissy friendship are rooting for their bond to grow in this way. The two have been the highlight of reality TV fans’ #friendship goals for quite a while now.
Chrissy Teigen’s husband, John Legend, might not be on board
Although Chrissy said she would step in for her friend in “a heartbeat,” her husband John Legend might take a little more convincing. He was hesitant to discuss the matters with reporters in 2016 when the rumor that Chrissy would surrogate for Kim first began its rounds. He laughed as he told ENews reporters: “Umm, we haven’t discussed this. We’ll talk about it later.”
He seemed good-natured about the idea though. Now that his wife has birthed their second child, Miles, maybe he would be more willing to consider the idea than he was when only Luna had been born.
Kim Kardashian already has her own surrogate
The truth is, Kim doesn’t need Chrissy to surrogate for her. She, in fact, just welcomed fourth child baby boy Psalm into the family via surrogate this month.
After the birth of Saint, in 2016, on an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kim’s doctor told her: “You never know if you might have the same type of problem that could be more serious this time … You’re always taking a little bit of a chance. There are situations where retained placenta could be life or death.” Translation: She could bleed to death if she were to carry another child to term.
That’s when the reality TV star decided to seek out surrogacy options. She has used two different surrogates to grow her family. The Wests have been extremely happy with the surrogacy process too.
Will Chrissy Teigen ever be Kim Kardashian’s surrogate?
Likely, no. Kim has stated several times that four children would be as big as her family would get. It seems extremely unlikely that she will want any more.
After the birth of Chicago was born, Kim even told People that she wasn’t sure if she wanted a fourth kid just yet. So, when they announced they were expecting Psalm– the world was surprised. She mentioned that if she did decide to have another child, she would be stopping after the fourth child was born.
