Last September, Kardashian West revealed that she and her husband were expecting their third child by sharing  a clip from the upcoming season of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’, of course.

“What happens every time I say, ‘Guess what?’” Kim was shown asking her sister Khloé over the phone.

“The person’s pregnant?” Khloé guesses before Kim announces, “We’re having a baby.”

She also shared her decision to have a child via surrogate on the reality show.

“After talking to Kanye, I think I always knew that surrogacy was an option, but I didn’t think it was that realistic of an option, and now I feel like that’s my reality,” she said in an episode of KUWTK that aired in April 2017.
