Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are proud parents to four young children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. This may seem like a big brood for some people, but the Wests may still have babies on the mind! Kanye has been very vocal about how he wants to have more children — seven to be exact — whereas Kim as assented that she would possibly have more. Unlike Kanye, however, Kim has some reservations about having more kids, and they’re pretty understandable!
Kim and Kanye welcomed their first child, North West, in June of 2013. Since then, the Wests have steadily added to their family, with their youngest, Psalm, still less than a year old. If you’ve been following the West’s family story, then you know that Kim has experienced plenty of issues with her first two pregnancies. After she gave birth to her second son, Saint, doctors told her that it was not safe for her to get pregnant once again.
Of course, this didn’t stop Kim and Kanye from finding other methods to expand their family. In 2017, it was announced that Kim and Kanye were expecting their third child via surrogate; daughter Chicago arrived healthy in early 2018. So, clearly the Wests are fans of surrogacy — their fourth child was born the same way — but does that mean they’re going to keep have kids via surrogate? If Kanye had his way, the answer would be yes! During an appearance on Carpool Karaoke in late 2019, Kanye declared that he wants “seven kids.” He added to the sentiment: “The richest thing that you can have is as many children as possible.”
Kim, on the other hand, isn’t quite as certain about whether she and Kanye will have more children. In a recent appearance on Laura Wassner’s All’s Fair podcast, Kim explained that she “could do two more [kids], but I just don’t think I should.” Kim is currently studying to become a lawyer, and along with balancing her beauty empire, reality show, other business ventures and four children, it’s easy to see why she may not want to add more babies to her brood right now.
Kim also explained that her age is playing a factor in the decision. “I’m going to turn 40. I don’t want to be an old mom. I think four is good.” While it seems that Kim is pretty content on the amount of children that she currently has, Kanye is still very interested in expanding their family — possibly to the point of having seven kids! Only time will tell if the Wests will decide to have another baby, but in the meantime, they’ve certainly got their hands full with their four young children currently!
