Kim Kardashian reportedly dished out big bucks to hire a surrogate for her third child with husband Kanye West — all to save their crumbling marriage?
According to reports, the 36-year-old reality star is ready to pay the unidentified woman a whopping $45,000 in monthly installments of $4,500 over the course of her pregnancy.
The deal includes a $5,000 bonus for the possibility of each additional child.
What's more, insiders say the couple also dished out $68,850 to the agency orchestrating the surrogacy deal.
As Radar exclusively revealed, the plan has been a long time coming.
"They are really trying to figure out what type of contract their choice for surrogate will sign, but Kim has made it clear that she will pretty much pay anything for another baby," the insider claimed.
"In addition to offering their surrogate a six-figure deal, they will also make sure she has full security and benefits and that she is spoiled and pampered the entire time!"
Kardashian struggled through her first two pregnancies after suffering from placenta accreta, a life-threatening condition affecting the uterine wall.
While their marriage has been shaky, the Kardashian and West recently enjoyed an ultra-private vacation in the Bahamas to rekindle their romance.
"Kim planned this entire trip without Kanye knowing and surprised him last minute," a source close to the mother of North, 3, and Saint West, 1, said. "She wanted to try and save their marriage."
"Kim and Kanye have not had any time for themselves," the insider added at the time.
