How many babies through surrogacy have the Kardashians had?

The Kardashians are more than just a family; they're a cultural phenomenon, loved by many and criticized by others. Led by Kris Jenner, the family includes her daughters: Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie. From their reality TV show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" to their success in fashion and business ventures, they've captured the world's attention. Yet, what truly sets them apart is their willingness to share personal experiences, including their journey through surrogacy, which has resonated deeply with millions of fans worldwide. 

Gestational surrogacy, a practice where a woman carries and gives birth to a child that is genetically unrelated to her for another individual or couple, is becoming more well-known, especially among high-profile figures like the Kardashians. For celebrities facing fertility challenges, surrogacy offers a viable solution for family planning. It also provides privacy and control over the pregnancy and birth process, shielding them from invasive media attention while allowing them to expand their families. While not the first celebrities to use surrogacy for family building, the Kardashians are some of the first major celebrities to talk about their surrogacy experiences without shame. Through their openness, the Kardashians have humanized the surrogacy experience and sparked important conversations about infertility, pregnancy complications, and alternative paths to parenthood.

Khloe Kardashian openly shared her fertility struggles with the world. Despite years of trying to conceive naturally and undergoing various treatments, Khloe and her then-partner, Tristan Thompson, faced heartbreaking setbacks due to issues like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis. These challenges led them to consider surrogacy. In 2018, Khloe welcomed her son, Tatum, through surrogacy, marking a new chapter in her life.
