Kanye West is supporting Kim Kardashian’s decision to share their very personal struggle with the entire world. While many couples struggle to conceive, it’s an issue that’s often not talked about, leaving many to deal with feelings of hopelessness and failure in silence. The 34-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashian star wants to change that.
As reported by E! News, Kim, at E!’s international press event for KUWTK, talked about her decision to share her infertility struggle via the show. She explained that she’s very vocal about her infertility because she wants to help other women and couples who are going through the same thing.
So how does Kanye, who is famously private about his life, feel about his wife going so public about something so intimate? Kim said that he supports her decision.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, already the parents of one, 18-month old North West, are hoping to have a second child. The fact that they have one is already a miracle. In an interview with Elle U.K. for its January issue, Kardashian revealed that she was told a few years ago that she could never get pregnant by three different doctors. She was just about to freeze her eggs when she found out she was pregnant.
At the press conference, Kim commented on the irony of becoming pregnant when she wasn’t even really trying but now not being able to when she really wants it.
“It’s been more challenging to get pregnant the second time around. When you’re not planning it, it happens. It’s just how God works. And when you want it so bad, it’s not happening.”
For now, Kim and Kanye are still trying to conceive the natural way. However, they aren’t ruling out in vitro fertilization if nothing keeps happening. Kim told Elle U.K. that she wants at least two more children with Kanye.
“I want a boy and another girl; I want it to start happening straight away. I loved being part of a huge family — and I want that for North. We’d do IVF if nothing happens, but we both want to keep trying naturally.”
Being a father is something that seems to suit West very well. His new song, “Only One,” which features the legendary Paul McCartney, is a tribute to his wife and daughter.
The couple’s fans saw the birth of North West on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. If Kim Kardashian and Kanye West do have another successful pregnancy, the pregnancy and birth will likely be shown on TV as well.
