Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: Are They Expecting Twins?
a blog by Claire, November 30, 2012
The cover of OK Magazine this week reveals Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are harboring a shocking pregnancy secret! Are they expecting?
Kim and Kanye’s relationship is growing stronger and rumor has it they are both itching to have a baby. But, not just ONE baby…TWO! Kim’s shocking revelation is that she’s always wanted twins- and since Kim has frozen her eggs, she’s already halfway through the in vitro fertilization (IVF) journey to motherhood. She expected Kanye not to be on board, but sources say he’s smitten with the idea of Kim carrying two “mini-Kanyes”.
Kardashian’s divorce to estranged hubby, Kris Humphries, has yet to be finalized, but that hasn’t stopped her from taking orders from her biological clock. Just two months ago, on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim accompanied sister Khloe to a fertility clinic. Khloe has been pursuing fertility treatments with husband Lamar Odom which were recently put on hold to focus on her new gig as co-host of X Factor. It was then that Kim addressed her fertility concerns by beginning the process to have her eggs frozen for fertility preservation.
Once she and West decide they are ready, her eggs will be thawed, injected with his sperm via intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), then transferred back into her uterus. For a woman Kardashian’s age, it is likely her fertility doctor will allow her to have two embryos transferred, though many clinics are moving toward recent guidelines of Single Embryo Transfer (SET) to avoid the risks associated with a multiples’ pregnancy. Depending on the number of eggs she has frozen, she could have several attempts at transfer and a successful twin pregnancy.
Kim may be decorating the nursery and preparing her body for pregnancy, but the reality TV star has made it clear she is putting motherhood on hold until her divorce is official.
