Kim Kardashian West on Her Fears of a Third Pregnancy: ‘I Don’t Think I Can Carry Another’ Baby
Kim Kardashian West is no stranger to straight-shooting when it comes to motherhood (and really, everything else). And less than five months after the birth of Saint, her second child with husband Kanye West, she is already fielding questions about expanding her family.
“Kanye has said it every single day,” Kardashian West tells sister Kourtney‘s ex Scott Disick in a clip teasing scenes from the upcoming season 12 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, after Disick asks whether she’s thinking about having a third child. “I don’t think I can carry another one.”
Her comment isn’t surprising; Kardashian West considers her health and body a priority — something she has freely discussed in the recent past.

In January, she shared that she was following the Atkins 40 plan to lose the 70 lbs. she gained both before and during her pregnancy with Saint.
And it’s definitely working. On Wednesday, Kardashian West posted a photo of her scale to her Snapchat account, with the caption, “YOU GUYS!!!! PRE BABY WEIGHT WAS 135!!!!!”
“Gunnar is amazing!” she wrote in a blog post earlier this month. “He has a private gym where we just grind, grind, grind!!! I put in the work and I definitely see it paying off.”
But aside from regaining her body after baby, Kardashian West’s health — she underwent multiple IVF treatments and feared placenta accreta would force her to have a hysterectomy — would be at risk if she were to get pregnant again.
“The plan now is not to have any more kids and Kim is okay with that,” a source told PEOPLE in December. After two high-risk pregnancies, “doctors have advised that [trying for another] could be dangerous.”
Season 12 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premieres on E! Sunday at 9 p.m. EST.
