A mere month after TMZ reported that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had hired a gestational surrogate (meaning she’s not the biological mother), to carry and deliver their third child, several news outlets reported on Wednesday that the couple’s surrogate is now three months pregnant.

TMZ reported in June that Kim and Kanye agreed to pay the surrogate $45,000 in ten monthly installments of $4,500, in addition to a $68,850 deposit given to the agency that referred the woman. As part of the agreement, the surrogate is required to abstain from smoking, drinking, doing drugs, entering hot tubs or saunas, eating raw fish, and having more than one caffeinated beverage per day.

Also in the agreement, Kim and Kanye promise to “assume the legal and parental responsibilities for any child…that may possess ay congenital or other abnormalities or defects.”

The surrogate is reportedly a San Diego woman in her late 20s who has gone through the process before and has appeared in a promotional video for surrogacy.
