Kim Kardashian and the stars who’ve fallen victim to crime

Kim, 36, appears to shock mum Kris Jenner when she says: ‘So I’ve come to the conclusion that I just want to explore surrogacy.’

It comes after the mum-of-two suffered health problems during her first two pregnancies with daughter North, 3, and son Saint, 11 months.

In fact she went into pretty grim detail about Nori’s arrival when she spoke of her anxieties ahead of Saint’s birth last year.

After suffering from pre-eclampsia – the trigger of North’s premature delivery in June 2013 – Kim also had placenta accreta after the birth, which causes the placenta to remain attached to the uterus.

It can be very dangerous and called for drastic action from her doctor.

‘My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails,’ Kim wrote on her website in 2015. ‘How disgusting and painful!!!

‘My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before.

Ouch! Kim also revealed that this condition had affected her ability to get pregnant for a second time and furthermore it carried risks for her labour with Saint.

Fortunately all went okay but it sounds like Kim wouldn’t want to face these risks again should she expand her family with hubby Kanye West.

This all comes as the TV star remains ‘in hiding’ following her robbery ordeal in Paris over a month ago.

Kim – who was held at gunpoint in her hotel room and had millions of pounds worth of jewellery stolen by thieves – has remained silent on social media since the frightening incident and reports suggest she has ‘zero desire’ to go back to her old life, meaning she’s more focused than ever on her family life.

‘She has no plans for any public appearances,’ a source told People magazine in October. ‘She just wants to be with her kids and out of public.

‘No one is pressuring her either. She has the best support from her family.’
