Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Chose a Boy Embryo During IVF?
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were struggling to have a second child but with the help of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization), the couple are pregnant with a baby boy. We are now learning the baby boy may have been carefully selected with the use of gender selection, something that is a controversial topic among many.
While many couples opt for IVF when struggling with pregnancy, few choose the sex of their child. Once again, Kim and Kanye are stirring controversy with the news from US Magazine, that ‘sources’ are claiming the couple chose gender selection and requested to only have boy embryos implanted in Kim.
The procedure known as Gender Selection is said to begin at a costly $17,000. The doctors isolate fertilized embryos of the preferred sex in a lab before transferring them to the uterus of the woman.
According to the magazine the source was quoted as saying,
“Kanye and Kim are so excited to complete their family. Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete, he wanted a little boy, an heir.”
There are also rumors that Kim wanted two children and having a boy would complete the family.
The couple documented their struggles with having a second child on the reality series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, where we saw Kim have several unsuccessful attempts at IVF before becoming pregnant with her second child.
Kardashian announced the news of her second pregnancy on the season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians when she said “I just got the blood test back and I’m pregnant!” The pregnant momma is currently in her second trimester and is said to be expecting her son at the end of 2015.
