Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are often in the news, and are globally famous personalities.

Member no. 6: Baby to be born via surrogacy
The new baby, which is due to arrive, is being given birth via surrogacy.
The fourth child is a boy, and is likely to be born in May.
He will have three siblings - North, who is five and half years, Saint aged three years and Chicago who turns 1 on January 15.
Notably, Us Magazine first reported the news about the fourth baby.
Chicago was the first Kardashian-West baby born via surrogacy
For those unaware, Chicago was the first baby born to Kim and Kanye via surrogacy.
The identity of the person who served as the surrogate was kept a secret, but the show Keeping Up With the Kardashians regularly documented the pregnancy process.
Notably, Us Magazine had reported in August 2018 that the couple had a male embryo left, having already used a surrogate.
During North and Saint's birth, Kim had pregnancy troubles
Perhaps the decision to have Chicago and the new boy via surrogacy stems from the pregnancy problems Kim faced during the birth of North and Saint.
She suffered from a condition called placenta accreta, where the placenta attaches too deeply to the walls of the uterus.
Due to her complications, Kim opted for the medical safety of surrogacy than bearing a child herself.
Kim always wanted four children and enjoyed the surrogacy process
Sources claim Kim always wanted four kids, and now her dream is coming true via surrogacy.
Though Kim's decision to opt for surrogacy was motivated by medical concerns, she enjoyed the process.
Reportedly insider sources claim that Kanye and Kim love the surrogate.
Going through surrogacy can help Kim spend the time with her older kids, 'getting them used to the new baby'.
