Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have hired a surrogate.

Kardashian West has long made it clear that she wants another child — even though her doctors have warned her about the health risks of carrying another baby because she suffered from placenta accreta during her last pregnancy, according to People Magazine. Placenta accreta is a condition in which the placenta grows into the wall of the womb and prevents it from easily detaching at the time of birth.

The couple, who wed in May 2014, are already parents to 4-year-old daughter North and 18-month-old son Saint.

The 36-year-old reality star said being the victim of a robbery during Paris Fashion Week in October only made the urgency greater. The mother of two began considering a surrogate after two doctors told her it would be unsafe for her to get pregnant again. She also spoke to a mother who used a surrogate in addition to giving birth herself to talk about her fear of not loving the child the same.
