Back in January, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian welcomed their third child.
The baby was carried by a surrogate as a result of complications with Kim’s previous pregnancies, and fans assumed Chicago West would Kimye’s last kid.
But it seems at least one half of the A-list couple is very much interested in siring more offspring — a lot more, in fact.
On this week’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim revealed that her increasingly unhinged husband is pressuring her to double the size of their brood.
Kim dropped that bombshell in a conversation with Larsa Pippen — the wife of former NBA star Scottie Pippen, who is fittingly always playing second fiddle to bigger stars on reality shows.
How did you get so lucky with all your kids?” asked Pippen. “They’re all so good.”
“Kanye wants to have more, though. He’s been harassing me,” said Kim. “He wants like seven. He’s like stuck on seven.”
“Okay, he needs to name his next album Seven and like lighten up on the kids situation,” Pippen joked.
“Seven kids is crazy!”
Yes, seven kids is kind of crazy … but then again, so is Kanye.
Of course, it’s important to bear in mind that this scene was featured on the new and improved KUWTK, which was recently rebranded for maximum drama.
For most of the show’s run, the Kardashians were in demand enough that it was assumed fans would watch the show even if it didn’t deliver the theatrics of more eventful series.
Now, a decade into its run, KUWTK has decided that it needs to take a page from the book of other reality shows and stir up some imaginary conflicts between its principle players.
For evidence of this, look no further than Kim’s now-infamous “maybe if you had a business you were passionate about” rant from earlier this season.
It literally took the Kardashians ten years to offer fans a sufficiently meme-able quote.
So it’s possible that Kim is exaggerating Kanye’s obsession with breeding for the benefit of a television audience.
Later in the episode, the mother of three tied her concerns about having more kids with her fears about mass shootings.
“I’ve been kind of hesitant about having more kids just because it literally keeps me up at night, thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this,” she said.
“I one billion percent believe that we need stricter gun laws,” Kardashian added.
“We need background checks, you shouldn’t be able to walk into a store and buy a gun. And to hear that the kids have met with people numerous times and nothing’s been done is just so sad.”
It’s a serious issue; no doubt about that.
If only someone in this family had a direct line to the president!
