Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
The reality star and her rapper husband used a surrogate for the birth of their now-one-year-old daughter Chicago after Kim had two awful pregnancy experiences with her first two children, five-year-old North and three-year-old Saint. During those pregnancies, Kim suffered from many complications including placenta accreta, a dangerous condition where the placenta doesn’t detach from the uterus after birth. After those experiences, her doctors advised against her getting pregnant again, saying it could be potentially fatal for her and the baby, which is why they opted for a surrogate. On May 10, 2019, Kim announced on her Twitter that her fourth child—a yet unnamed boy—was also born via surrogate. Congrats to the happy family!
