While recent updates on the reality TV star's struggle to give North West a sibling revealed IVF issues and the possibility of using a surrogate, the latest news says that's not the case. On last night's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim was shown telling sister Khloe, "I just got the blood test back, and I am pregnant!" E! News even sent a "congrats!" tweet.
Kim also appears on the cover of the July issue of Glamour magazine, and confirmed to the magazine two weeks after her interview, as the issue was going to press, that she and husband Kanye West are indeed expecting again, saying "We are so beyond excited."
Despite her fertility issues, Kim never seemed to give up her dream of becoming pregnant again, telling Matt Lauer in a Today show interview, "I still have hope, so I'm just going to keep on trying."
She was equally honest and open in her interview with Glamour, telling the magazine,
"I didn't know that I was going to be so open with [my fertility challenges]. But meeting people at my fertility doctor's office who are going through the same things I'm going through, I thought, Why not share my story? It's been really emotional. One doctor told me I would need my uterus removed after I had another baby—I could only have one more. One was like, "You should get a surrogate." The other one was like, "Oh, no, you'll be fine." Then I called my doctor, and he's like, "You know what? I believe—we'll get through it."There are definitely times when I walked out [of the doctor's office] hysterically crying,and other times when I was like, "OK, everything's looking good—it's going to be this month!" The waiting and waiting has been a roller coaster."
No word yet on the due date, gender, or any other details—but we're sure more information will be revealed (or teased) in future episodes of KUWTK. Congrats to the couple!
