The world now knows Kim and Kanye’s surrogate. The San Diego resident La’Reina Haynes identity was revealed in a world exclusive.
The Wests seem to be keeping up with La’Reina as they have made it a point to visit her after the birth of their third child, Chicago West. La’ Reina delivered Chicago on January 15th at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where the Wests have had their other two children, North and Saint, delivered.
Word on the street is that the Wests paid Hayes a scrappy 68K to follow through with the surrogacy. It’s a mere number when you hear of the bizarre list of requirements Kim and Kanye had for La’Reina!
The fees were stated to cover “for all discomfort, pain, suffering, and inconveniences, for pregnancy and pre-birth child support expenses and post-birth expenses.” Hayes did not pay for any medical expense as well with the contract stating, “obstetrical, nursing, hospital and maternity care, pharmaceutical, pediatrics, or other costs” were all covered.
Haynes, who is already married and has two kids of her own, agreed to some strict rules concerning her diet, lifestyle, and general wellness in the contract set out by the Wests. Radar Online! revealed that Hayes “was ordered to stay far away from ‘soft cheese’ and if she was to get a massage while bringing pregnant, she could only do so with a special almond oil.”
The contract also made a statement concerning a visit that the couple would make to Haynes after birth, “Before returning home, the Intended Parents and their newborn Child(ren) shall visit with the Gestational Carrier and her family for a minimum of two hours if approved by the Child’s pediatrician.” We wonder if La’Reina will have her own reality show in the mix from all of this now? Will it be “Keeping Up La’Reina?”
The document goes on to state that La’Reina will be visited by the couple three more times during the first year of birth, “After the birth of the Child, the Intended Parents shall use their best efforts to call, write, or send a photo to the Gestational Carrier.”
The contract goes on to state that the communications should happen when Chicago turns “three months; six months old; and twelve months old.” Sounds like a healthy exchange!
It makes sense to let the surrogate at least know what’s happening with the baby that they helped bring into the world! We respect the fact that Kimye will be making the time to keep La’Reina in the loop.
This isn’t the first time La’Reina has been a surrogate. She agreed to her first surrogacy for a Los Angeles couple in 2014. The procedure was a success without a hitch!
When approached about the West’s surrogacy she did not know who the couple was at first when she agreed to it. She was only told that it was a celebrity couple, maybe that’s why she never asked once about the money involved!
A source told Radar Online, “She just wanted to bless someone’s family with the gift of a child.” La’Reina has become a virtual poster mom for Family Creations stating that she wanted other families to “have the joy that I’ve been able to in producing my own family.”
What did Kim say after the birth? “We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.”
Seems like Chicago might have some familiarity with her mom already while in the womb since La’Reina is reported to have been a KUWTK fan! A source told Radar Online, “She’s watched all of the shows, Kim’s vanity was touched when she found out.”
We wish both Haynes and the Kardashians well! Greetings and welcome to planet earth, Chicago West!
