On January 15th of 2018, Kim and Kanye welcomed the birth of their third child — a precious little baby named Chicago West.

Chicago was born via surrogate — a smart and healthy choice considering the health risks that Kim would have endured with another pregnancy. But reports have claimed that something’s different with this new child.

Kim Kardashian is reportedly distant — but is apparently also insisting that no one tell Chicago about the surrogacy? How long does she think that she can keep it a secret.

This is a little odd, folks, and we’ll explain why.

RadarOnline reports that Kim Kardashian asks her family to let her be the one to tell Chicago — when she’s old enough to, you know, understand language and process the information — about how she was born.

“Kim asked her family to never tell Chicago that she was born via surrogate.”

If you’re wondering how long Kim thinks that she could possibly keep that up, what with the surrogacy being famous and all, she apparently does plan for Chicago to eventually learn the truth.

“Kim said that she wants to be the one to tell Chicago the story of how she was conceived and she does not want to do so until she asks.”

So she plans to hold out until the inevitable “where do babies come from?” question. That makes sense.

However, it sounds like Kanye’s unhappy with Kim’s request — and there might be more too it.

See, there have also been some bizarre reports that lead some to believe that Kim Kardashian may be neglecting baby Chicago.

Or, at the very least, not having the sort of bond with her that she did with North and Saint after they were born.

Reports claim that Kim seems less maternal in the aftermath of Chicago’s birth.

Descriptions make it sound like she’s phoning in motherhood with sweet baby Chi.

Could it be true?

Claims made to RadarOnline go on to suggest that Kim Kardashian views family as another part of her brand.

“Kim’s desire to have more kids comes from her need to stay rich and relevant.”

And, per these reports, that it’s driving a wedge between the Wests.

“But Kanye is starting to see how fake she is and, at this point, doesn’t want to add any more children to the mix. He is starting to not even recognize her at all anymore.”

That is stunning if true.

And Kanye is reportedly unhappy that Kim seems less devoted as a new mother this time around.

“It’s creating a lot of arguments for Kanye. He just doesn’t think that she’s into it.”

Obviously, you can’t just not be into your responsibilities as a parent.

“She just can’t quit with her selfie and body obsession — and it’s pushing Kanye away once more.”

That’s curious, since Kanye’s taken at least some of Kim’s seductive photos.

“He thought she’d calmed down when the new baby came, but it’s actually gotten worse.”

Now, we hope that someone’s just confused or has heard mixed signals, because Kim Kardashian loves her family and we’d hate to imagine her treating a baby born via surrogate any differently than she treated those she pushed out herself.

It may even be that someone is deliberately spreading rumors about her. Sometimes, a celebrity’s friend can become their worst enemy.

As for the request that no one tell Chicago about the surrogacy until she asks — well, that makes sense.

When your child asks about reproduction, you should tell them the truth — yes, even if they’re super young. That includes things like surrogacy.

We don’t think that Kim thinks that she can keep Chicago in a bubble for life. But a mom who wants to be the one to tell her daughter about how she was born doesn’t sound like a neglectful mother to us.
