Who is Chicago West?
Chicago West is the third-born child of popular American celebrity couple, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West. Chicago West was born on January 15, 2018, via surrogcy. Thanks to her famous parents and relatives, Chicago West started hogging the limelight right from the time she was born. She even has an Instagram page, which has so far accumulated more than 41,000 followers. She has also been featured on her famous family members’ social media pages several times.
When Kim Kardashian West became pregnant with her first child, she suffered Pre-eclampsia (PE), a disorder which forced her to deliver her baby six weeks earlier than normal. After giving birth to her second child, Saint West, Kardashian had to undergo a surgery to remove her placenta as she suffered placenta accreta. The doctors then advised her not to become pregnant again. Since Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wanted to expand their family, they opted for surrogacy. After spending months in fiding a surrogate, Kim and Kanye finally found the perfect candidate in 2017. In an episode of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ which was aired in November 2017, Kim Kardashian confirmed the sex of the baby. In an interview to ‘Entertainment Tonight’ Kim said that surrogacy was actually more difficult than experiencing pregnancy. She had also said that she felt bad for not being able to carry her third baby.
