The couple is looking to expand their family.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have reportedly hired an unknown woman to be a surrogate for their third child.

According to multiple sources, the two paid $68,850 to a surrogacy agency that helped the couple find a surrogate. They will pay her a total of $45,000 in increments of $4,500 per month for 10 months, with a bonus of $5,000 for each possible multiple child (i.e., twins, triplets, etc.).

Kardashian West's robbery during Paris Fashion Week last October reignited her desire to have more children, reports People, despite the extreme health risks associated with pregnancy for women who have placenta accreta, like Kardashian West herself. The painful and potentially life-threatening condition occurs where the placenta attaches to the womb, making it difficult to give birth. After giving birth to her first child, North, Kardashian West detailed on her blog how her doctor had to physically detach the placenta from the womb during labor, ensuring North was delivered safely.

"I've come to the conclusion in my mind that I can't carry another one," Kardashian West said to her mom, Kris Jenner, on their hit reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. "So now I want to explore surrogacy."

The surrogacy reports surfaced the same day Kardashian West's first beauty line, KKW beauty, launches online at 9 a.m. PT.
