Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child, a daughter named Chicago, via surrogate in January 2018. The couple had already used a surrogate for their son Saint, and this time around, they decided to go with the same agency. But how much did Kim and Kanye pay their surrogate?
TMZ reported in June that the Kardashian-West clan would pay their surrogate $45,000 in 10 payments of $4,500 each. But that’s not the only cost associated with a surrogate pregnancy.
In addition to the $45,000 fee, the surrogate was also paid for medical expenses, which can include doctor visits, ultrasounds, and other medical procedures. The surrogate was also paid for any lost wages due to time off work for medical appointments. The total cost of a surrogate pregnancy can range from $50,000 to $100,000.
The Kardashian-West family also had to pay for the agency fees, which can range from $15,000 to $30,000. This includes the cost of the agency’s services, such as screening potential surrogates, matching the couple with a surrogate, and providing legal and medical advice.
Kim and Kanye also had to pay for the legal fees associated with the surrogacy. This includes the cost of drawing up the surrogacy contract, which is an important document that outlines the rights and responsibilities of both parties. The legal fees can range from $2,000 to $10,000.
All in all, it’s estimated that Kim and Kanye paid around $60,000 to $90,000 for their surrogate pregnancy. This is a significant amount of money, but it’s worth it for the couple to have a healthy baby. Kim and Kanye have made it clear that they are committed to giving their children the best life possible, and they are willing to invest the money to make that happen.
