UPDATED 04/04/17: After months of rumours that Kim Kardashian is adding another kiddo to the Kardashian klan, it seems we finally have some more clarity on the matter.

While we're yet to hear whether she is officially expecting, Kim has confirmed she is planning on having a third kid in a new trailer for Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Kim recently had an operation on her uterus so that she could conceive naturally, however, she revealed that, “The surgery didn’t do anything. Kanye and I are going to look into other options and see what we’re comfortable with.”

“I really tried everything and I really want this, but it’s just not gonna happen for me,” Kim shares. “It’s really tough. I had a full breakdown where I was crying,” she adds.

When Kourtney asked if she would consider a surrogate, Kim responded, “I’m leaning more towards — I want to try,” she replies. “I always knew surrogacy was an option, and I didn’t think it was realistic, but now I think it’s the only other option for me.”

Poor Kimmy.

Kim has been quite upfront about her desire to have a third child, telling Kris previously, “I’m going to try to have one more baby. I want my kids to have siblings but the doctors don’t feel like it’s safe for me.”

To which Kris, ever the concerned mother, responded, “I don’t want you to do something that puts you in danger.”

ICYMI, doctors are concerned because Kim had preeclampsia, placenta accreta and labour complications when giving birth to North and Saint, respectively. What's comforting is that, if Kim does fall pregnant again, Kris is gonna get the best docs to help her through it.

ORIGINAL STORY 08/11/16: Strap yourself in and prepare for a wild ride ‘cause we could be welcoming another Kardahsian-West bub into the world, and it might be sooner than you think.

Less than a year after giving birth to North’s baby bro, Saint, Kim has revealed in a new preview for Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she’s thinking about baby number three. Yep – sounds like Kim’s a woman on a mish and she’s not here to be distracted tyvm.

Throughout her pregnancies Kim has been open AF about the whole process, including how she’s struggled to conceive naturally. In the preview clip she goes on to reveal she’s now considering other options for her third kid.

"So I've come to the conclusion that I just want to explore surrogacy," Kim explains.

The camera then flips to Kris Jenner and she does not look happy. In addition to seeming completely gobsmacked at Kimmy’s bombshell, you can already start to see the stress forming on Kris’ face. Just the thought of all the media, momager and G-Ma commitments that come with having five grandkids is probs overwhelming and six might just be the limit.

While this is the first we’ve heard of surrogacy, Kim has dropped hints to Kris about wanting a third kid in the past.

At the end of last year the two were talking about bouncing back after childbirth on an ep of KUWTK when Kris said, “You have to remember that you're making another human being and that you were able to really get in the best shape of your life after your baby and you'll do it again."

Kim then responded, "Oh, I'm not worried about after. I'm just thinking about number three. That's where your body really starts to slip." Who knows whether this is also part of the reason Kim’s looking to explore other options.

In the meantime we’re gonna sit tight and start thinking of baby names.
