It's been reported that the couple turned to a surrogate for their third child.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will reportedly welcome their third child next year.

According to TMZ, the couple is expecting baby No. 3 at the end of January. The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to Kardashian's rep for comment.

It had been reported that they turned to a surrogate because of Kardashian's difficult medical condition during her pregnancy with daughter North and son Saint.

"There have been a lot of things said and Kanye and I have not confirmed anything," Kardashian, 36, told The Hollywood Reporter about the possibility of having another kid. "We're definitely trying. We are hoping so."

The reality star/entrepreneur has been open about suffering from placenta accreta during her two pregnancies. The life-threatening condition occurs when the placenta attaches to the womb, making it difficult to give birth.

"My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails. How disgusting and painful!!!" Kardashian wrote in her blog about giving birth to North. "My mom [Kris Jenner] was crying; she had never seen anything like this before. My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that — it was the most painful experience of my life! They gave me a second epidural but we were racing against time, so I just had to deal."

Kardashian has also mentioned surrogacy as an option.

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

Let's just hope North will feel differently about the newborn than she does about Saint.
