“They have absolutely talked about trying for another baby with the help of a surrogate, but nothing seems decided for sure,” said a person close to Kardashian and West. The person added: “Chicago is still little, and they have time.”

“They don’t seem to be in a huge rush,” the source also said about having more children. “They would use the same surrogate if she agrees to help them again. Kim can’t say enough kind words about the surrogate.”

The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star said she might have another baby earlier in 2018. “I would have maybe one more. I would maybe try for one more,” Kardashian said, according to the New York Daily News. “I really, really enjoyed the surrogacy process. … I will say, when it came to the breastfeeding time, I was like, ‘OK, this is the best decision I ever made.’ It’s a game changer.

“Having to not go through that every few hours, breastfeeding, I can spend so much more time with the older kids and getting them all used to the baby,” she continued.

She also spoke about having a surrogate in January 2018.  “Although I never would have expected to go through something like this, the agency was so helpful and made me feel at ease about the whole process. Kanye and I were so blessed to have found the most amazing gestational carrier. We have a great relationship with her and trusted her completely throughout the entire process,” she wrote.

But in August, Kardashian and West said they didn’t have plans to have more children, according to E! News. “We start filming season 16 next week, so if I think about it more and it’s gonna happen, you’ll definitely see it on the show,” she said at the time. “But as of now, no.”

West Reaffirms Support for Trump

Meanwhile, West on Jan. 1 reaffirmed his support for President Donald Trump, saying “Trump all day.” A few minutes later, he tweeted an emoji of what appears to be a dragon, meaning “dragon energy.” Later, he wrote: “Just so in 2019 you know where I stand.”

He continued tweeting on New Year’s Day, saying, “They will not program me,” he wrote. “Blacks are 90% Democrats,” he added. “That sounds like control to me.”

He also stated: “From now on I’m performing with my [expletive] hat on,” in reference to the Make America Great Again hat associated with Trump.

Sometime later, he tweeted “2024” and also wrote, in part, “I am a tax payer. I am myself. God is with us.”

“One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black,” he wrote.
