Reality Show star, and mother of three, Kim Kardashian West, is the cover girl for the April issue of Elle Magazine.
Kim gives an insight into what her regular day is like, and how she is able to manage her many responsibilities gracefully.
On being impeccable, she maintains that she is that way due to ho her everyday life runs.
Kim says, “My life is chaotic, so my home is supersimple. Everything has to be clean. No clutter.” This maxim extends to her digital life as well. “I can’t have a full phone. At the end of the day, I delete everything that’s not a current conversation. If I need some information, then I keep it. If not, it has to be deleted. I can’t see too much noise.”
She also shared some hard facts on surrogacy, she says:
“I refer to her as a surrogate, but it’s completely my and Kanye’s DNA, so technically that’s called a gestational carrier. A surrogate is when they use the husband’s sperm and the surrogate’s egg.” The couple worked with agencies to locate candidates, whom they then interviewed.
When Kim found their woman, she knew immediately. “It was a feeling,” she says. “You know when you can trust someone.” The next step was to select an embryo. “It’s a really tricky thing,” she says. “What sex do you put in? I just said, ‘Which one is the healthiest? Pick the healthiest one,’ and that was a girl.” Once the process was underway, she only had a few requests: that the baby be born in L.A., “where all my babies were delivered, and for her to use my doctor. She was totally comfortable with that.” Kim also preferred that the carrier eat as organically as possible, “which is just how she eats, so it was a good match for us.” But she wasn’t tyrannical about it. “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. I’m not going to be picky like that. That’s just ridiculous.’” The two attended doctor’s appointments together and kept in close touch. “I hated being pregnant,” Kim says. “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.”
