Kanye West is many things: a rapper, a record producer, a fashion designer, and a doting husband to wife Kim Kardashian. But since wife Kim gave birth to North and Saint, Kanye has really embraced his new role as a father.
But now Kanye West wants more, according to ET. And he wants more kids so bad that he’s been bringing it up with Kim Kardashian every single day.
In the recent episode of Kocktails With Khloe, Kim Kardashian West talked at length to Khloe about Kanye’s wish to father more kids.
“Do you want to have more kids?” Khloe asked.
“I said, ‘No way,'” Kim said. “I was so set on my two kids and how happy I was with my life the way that it is, but Kanye has been mentioning it every single day lately for the last 10 days,” replied Kim.
“You’ve been counting the days?”
“Yeah,” Kim replied with a mock expression of exasperation on her face. “I’m like why is he doing this to me?!”
“It would be a really dangerous environment for me if I were to get pregnant again,” she added.
It was a tough situation for Kim, who praised Kanye for being a “fun dad.”
For some context on Kim’s reaction, it’s worth noting that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star struggled with her two pregnancies with North and Saint.
The struggles she experienced in her first pregnancy had a more emotional bent. While Kim had already been with Kanye for months at the time, Kim’s pregnancy became more emotionally taxing on account of having to deal with an awful divorce from her ex-husband. She eventually came around to embracing her condition after some introspection on her part.
“[Motherhood] really changes you,” Kim told Glamour Magazine. “When I found out I was pregnant [with North West], I was going through an awful divorce, Kanye and I had just been dating for seven months — granted, we knew each other for a decade — and I was like, ‘I can’t do this. It’s not the right time.’ But then I figured, If I’m in my thirties and I’m not ready, I’ll never be ready. So it’s been the biggest lesson, and the biggest joy of my life.”
The pair immediately planned on having another child after Kim gave birth to North. Kim, however, experienced difficulties getting pregnant this time, which caused her to try IVF and other alternatives (such as surrogacy). She admitted in the Glamour interview that she initially planned on keeping it secret on KUWTK.
“There are definitely times when I walked out [of the doctor’s office] hysterically crying,” Kardashian recalls. “And other times when I was like, ‘Okay, everything’s looking good, it’s going to be this month!’ The waiting and waiting has been a roller coaster.”
Kim experienced complications during her first pregnancy on account of her placenta getting too attached to her uterine wall. It was a high-risk pregnancy that could have cost her life, which is why she was fraught with worry over the possibility of becoming pregnant again.
“I have some days I get SO scared but then I speak to my doctor, Dr. Paul Crane, and he always calms me down,” she said.
Now that the married couple have two kids, Kim said that their eldest daughter — North — is often jealous of her little brother Saint, even more so when she breastfeeds.
“She would cry so much and try to pull him off of me,” Kim revealed to Khloe. “She was so jealous that she took her little milk box, put it in my bra… with the straw sticking out because she wanted to drink while he was drinking.”
