Kim Kardashian reveals why she won't have more than four kids

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star may already have baby no. 4 on her mind. 

On Tuesday, March 13, 2018, Kim Kardashian explained why she doesn't plan on having more than four children in her April 2018 Elle cover story.

"I don't think I could handle more than that," the mom of three began. "My time is spread really thin. And I think it's important that in all couples, the mom give the husband as much attention as the kids."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, the reality star and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed their third child, daughter Chicago, via surrogate in January 2018. During her candid interview with Elle, Kardashian opened up about the surrogacy process.

"It's a really tricky thing," she said, explaining that the married pair had to choose an embryo. "What sex do you put in? I just said, 'Which one is the healthiest? Pick the healthiest one,' and that was a girl." 

They also needed to prepare a set of guidelines for their carrier to follow, which included using the television personality's doctor, delivering the baby in Los Angeles, and eating organically. However, Kardashian, who previously denied rumors that she'd already asked her surrogate to carry her fourth child, made it a point to not be a momzilla about the latter.

"I straight-up told her, 'Look, I ate doughnuts every single day. If you want doughnuts and ice cream, go for it. Do whatever you feel,'" she continued, adding, "'I'm not going to be picky like that. That's just ridiculous.'"

While her surrogacy experience wasn't always the easiest, Kardashian knows that they ultimately made the right decision. "I hated being pregnant," the business mogul told the magazine. "But as much as I hated it, I still wished I could have done it on my own. The control is hard at the beginning. Once you let that go, it's the best experience. I would recommend surrogacy for anybody."

And it sounds like Kardashian and West, who are also parents to daughter North, 4, and son Saint, 2, continue to make a great team. "He's taught me to have more of an opinion," she explained. "I've taught him to be a bit more calm or cautious. We're a good balance."
