We have the inside scoop about why celebrity couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian decided it would be the best idea for their third celebrity baby to be carried by a surrogate. According to UsMagazine.com, the latest celebrity news reveals that doctors told Kardashian that it was not safe for her or her celebrity baby’s health if she were to carry it on her own due to Preeclampsia and placenta accreta. Kardashian also goes on to explain that technically, the term “gestational carrier” should be used since they implanted her own fertilized egg into the carrier. Kardashian disclosed that it was hard for her to not be able to carry her own child.

Kim Kardashian hired a surrogate for her third celebrity baby. What are some non-traditional ways to welcome a child into your home?

Cupid’s Advice:

Thankfully, nowadays there are alternate options to have a child even if you have fertility issues or simply want to expand your family in a different way. Cupid has some insight on some non-traditional ways to welcome a child into your home:

1. Adoption: Adoption is a very common way to gain a new wonderful member to your family. It is a great situation because you get to raise a child while he or she is gaining a new permanent loving home. Remember to always be as welcoming and friendly as you can when taking a new child into your home.

2. Foster child: Foster care is another way to welcome a child into your home, even if it’s short-term. This is a great way to create a strong relationship with a child who may not be used to the love and care that you are able to give them. Foster care can also turn into adoption later on in some cases.

3. Being the care-giver for a relative or close friend’s child: Sometimes individuals aren’t capable of taking care of a child at a certain point in their life, but they still want the child near and to be in familiar hands. This situation may present itself to you, and it can be a great way to help raise a child. Overall, family is defined by those who love you for your truest self- blood related or not.
