Kim Kardashian has begun opening up about the woman who she chose to be her surrogate. As RadarOnline.com reported, La'Reina Haynes carried and recently delivered the reality star's daughter with rapper Kanye West. Click through the gallery to find out more about the mystery woman, including why she wanted to help the couple and how much she got paid for her time and trouble!
The 27-year-old mom lives south of Kardashian and West in San Diego, where she is raising two boys with her husband, who is in the military.
The superstar couple found Haynes through the surrogate program Family Creations.
Haynes, who had been a surrogate before, said she found the experience to be "humbling."
She had "success immediately" the first time she became a surrogate for another couple, who, like Kardashian, 37, and 40-year-old West, live in Los Angeles.
Haynes pocketed $68,000 to carry the baby, but she didn't know which celebrity couple had hired her in the beginning.
"At the time she did not know who it was," a source told Radar, adding when she did find out Kardashian and West were the parents, "Not once did she ask for more money, knowing they could afford it."
Hayne, said the source, "just wanted to bless someone's family with the gift of a child."
The giving surrogate once noted she hoped she could give others the gift of having "the joy that I've been able to have producing my own family."
Haynes gave birth to Chicago West on Jan. 15 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
