Kim Kardashian West Reveals She Would ‘Definitely’ Have One More Child – Despite Medical Fears

06/15/2016 at 03:15 PM ET

Kim Kardashian West is the first to admit she’s not a big fan of being pregnant.

“I hate being pregnant,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I think it’s the worst experience.”

And with good reason. The reality star and entrepreneur has had two high-risk pregnancies: with 3-year-old daughter North, she suffered from preeclampsia (a condition characterized by high blood pressure) and with son Saint, now 6 months, Kardashian West had placenta accreta, in which the placenta attaches too deep in the uterine wall.

During Saint’s dramatic birth, “it took about two hours to get my placenta out,” says Kardashian West. “My cervix was closed and the doctor had to break through my cervix with his hand. They thought they were going to have to remove my uterus. I knew it was a possibility, but [luckily] we worked it out.”

Needless to say, “after [Saint was born], I said to my husband [Kanye West], ‘Remind me of this moment! Never again.’ ”

However, “you forget,” says Kardashian West, 35. “After about four months, I was like, I can breathe again. I can maybe have another one.”

The mom of two says she understands the risks, but “I could definitely have one more.”

For now, she’s busy with her “energetic and wild” North and “sweet and calm” Saint. Says Kardashian West: “They look so much alike, but they have totally different personalities. All North wants to do is put on a costume and sing and dance. She steals all my jewelry, she loves clothes and she’s obsessed with makeup. Saint sits and smiles all day long!”

What’s the point of taking a picture like that if you’re going to photoshop it so bad? I mean, it literally almost looks like a drawing. Sorry Kim, we all know you don’t really look like that. It’s time to give it a rest and spend time with your kids.

Kiki on

Good for HER – Porn mom and poor kids…

One word 'Eewwww' on

Even with photoshopped, she still looks so huge. Its very unflattering. I bet they had to pay big bucks to who ever ‘fix’ the original picture. if shes still big even after fixing her. Imagine the unphotoshopped version’

Stan on

Soooeeeyyyy! Oink, lil piggy!

Guest on

I hope she does not have another child. Her nannies will be overworked! That photo is awful!

Amber on

She looks good…better than me that’s for sure.

What she means is that she conceded to Kanye’s demands for another child. He says jump – she says how high.

Stephie on

Kameltoe much? Get the Petri dish ready Drs. The kow needs another mixture

why on

Why would she want to have another kid when she can’t even spend time with the two that she has? It would take even more time away from her selfies, which we all know gives priority over her kids. Besides that, why would we want to spend another long grueling nine months seeing articles about how she can’t stand being pregnant and seeing her pour her even more immensely over sized body into clothes that just want to rip out at the seams?

Kamilla on

She looks like she’s wearing a giant MAXI.PAD or ADULT DEPENDS.
By the way, there is a big ole wet stain down 👇 there; that’s disgusting!! Thank you for ruining my dinner 😝.

Vanessa on

For the love of God, please do not have another child. She did nothing but whinge the whole time she was pregnant with the other two.

ct on

Kim, NO, we cannot go thru another one of your pregnancy’s!!!
Your cervix is probably ruined from all the men you’ve had pounding your va-jay, jay!

Guest on

Looking forward to know the new name they’re gong to give!

marie on

I guess the ratings for KUWTK must be tanking, pimpmomma is probably begging her to have another child for ratings.

Guest on

It’s going to be another uncommon name.

Oh shut up you stupid woman! High risk pregnancies! I’d give everything to have one of those that would at least end in a baby. I lost my son at 24 weeks last week when I went into spontaneous labor that couldn’t be stopped. My son was born alive but couldn’t stay with me and passed away minutes later. Know when you’re lucky and stop thinking you’re the only person in the world to have a bad day!

coeloh on

This proves that her other recent photos with the “thigh gap” were all doctored-up, because her inner thighs are touching each other in this photo, and the top of her legs are not thin. My legs aren’t either, and she’s got better legs than me, but I wish she’d stop posting fake pictures of herself. Back in the day, those hips were called “saddlebags”, but I guess now they’re in style. As for another kid, she’s already hiding the so-called son she had, so she’ll hide the next one? I don’t even believe he exists anymore.

Nikki on

You guys are disgusting, making fun of that poor woman. What have she ever done to you? Nothing, absolutely nothing. I’m not a fan of hers but i would never call her half of the things you people call her. She seems very nice. Y’all should be ashamed of yourselves. She made a mistake, and she’s famous because of it but you live and you learn. You guys never talk about Paris Hilton that way. You wouldn’t like someone talking about you that way, calling you a pornstar, a slut, fat, pig etc. Leave her alone geez.

TbonesMum on

Oh Emily Fulton, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I have no words for you.
As for Kim, I agree with what you said 100%.

Kim Chrisman on

Love to Emily Fulton ((hugs)))

Camel Toe…

Otis on

She looks great to me and her daughter North is cute.

rocky on

wendyw2407, the point is that she can, yes she looks bad in this photo it was probably Kanye idea to shoot her in the adult diaper.

Anonymous on

That is probably Kanye’s idea.

Don Silvester on

Why would she have another baby with Kanye the knee grr?

Zol on

Now she wants another child, but she was complaining most of the time on the previous two pregnancy!

Anonymous on

She would be crazy to try and have another baby with that situation going on . I don’t think her Doc. Would recommend it at all . To dangerous .

Jana on

What on Earth is she wearing????? Lol lol

Anonymous on

OMG she look ridiculous hahah

Emma4ever on

Emily Fulton I’m sorry for your loss, I know how you feel I lost my daughter day after she born was so painfully hard even now four years later 😥

Vee on

I very much doubt that she spends much time with her kids. If she did have one more at least they would have each other.

Niko on

Ugh…

Looloo on

This is what she said after North was born and she will probably do the same after every single child she has in the future. She will whine and complain for 9 months straight and say she will never, ever have another child. Then, a few months later she will change her mind. After like 6 more months of hearing about her struggles to conceive she’ll announce getting IVF. Then deny being pregnant for a while. Then announce she’s pregnant and the cycle will begin again…

Anonymous on

Her cervix was closed? Immediately after birth? With the placenta still in and the umbilical cord out? Sorry Kim, just like your ‘infertility’ (how do you get pregnant by the time your first child is 2 and have enough time to even need fertility treatment?) this is another one of those BS pay attention to me stories. Please do the world a favor and not reproduce again.

C on

Emily Fulton, I’m so sorry about your son. I can’t even imagine the pain.
XOXO’s

Xol on

Kim looks good to me.

Me on
