As of right now, Kim Kardashian is the only member of the Kardashian family that we know is for sure, 100 percent expecting a baby (still waiting on confirmation of those Kylie and Khloé rumors!). In true Kardashian fashion (KarFashian?), Kim threw a lavish baby shower to celebrate baby No. 3. All of her besties were invited, but there was one name that was specifically left off the invite list: Kim's surrogate. Kim recently explained the reason for this decision, and people have some thoughts. (Of course they do. It's the Kardashians. They literally can't sneeze without people weighing in with their opinions.)
Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye (perhaps you've heard of him) are the parents to two children: North (4) and Saint (1).
The couple is now expecting their third child, who is currently being carried by a surrogate.
Earlier this week, Kim revealed that she and Kanye will be having another little girl. How exciting!
Last weekend, Kim threw an extravagant baby shower for baby No. 3. Seriously, check out this decor:
Cherry blossoms! Inside the house!
Obviously, you know Kim’s baby showers are going to be fancy as all get-out, but we were not anticipating actual, real-live trees to be involved.
She was also giving away her brand-new perfume as baby shower favors.
Obligatory reminder that Kim made $10 million in her first day of selling said perfume.
That woman obviously has self-promotion figured out.
However, there was one person who was noticeably absent from invite list.
Kim elected not to invite her surrogate to the baby shower. She appeared on the show The Real to explain why.
Apparently, it all comes down to Kim’s older two kids, and the transition they’re making into having a new baby in the house.
You can watch Kim talk about her decision in the clip below:
“I just thought — I don’t know, it was a weird decision to have to make,” Kim said when the hosts asked why the surrogate didn’t get an invitation. “Of course I would have wanted her to be there and be a part of it, but I hadn’t really gone that far in explaining it to my kids yet. So I have to figure that out first.”
After she explained her reasoning, the audience applauded in support. Moms know best, after all!
However, the people of Twitter have had varied reactions to the fact that Kim’s surrogate wasn’t at the baby shower.
