Health threats surrounding pregnancy are as old as humanity and no woman is immune to or above them. However, some women do have the option of using a gestational surrogate as an option–having another woman carry their baby for them–allowing them to still have a baby and avoid life threatening pregnancy issues. The act is costly, which is why it is not an option for many women and the thought of someone else carrying your child can make some feel uncomfortable.

Unless you have been under a rock then you know Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child and second daughter, Chicago West, via surrogate on Monday. Kim opened up to People about her decision to hire a surrogate.

“I have always been really honest about my struggles with pregnancy,” she began. “Preeclampsia and placenta accreta are high-risk conditions, so when I wanted to have a third baby, doctors said that it wasn’t safe for my — or the baby’s — health to carry on my own.”

“After exploring many options, Kanye and I decided to use a gestational carrier,” added Kardashian West, 37, explaining, “Although I have used the term surrogate in the past, a gestational carrier is actually the technical term for a woman who carries a baby that she has no biological relationship to.”

“A traditional surrogate donates her egg, is artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm and then carries the baby to term,” she writes. “Since we implanted my fertilized egg in our gestational carrier, our baby is biologically mine and Kanye’s. You can either choose someone that you know or you can go through an agency, like Kanye and I did.”

Kardashian West has been open about her emotional struggles in using a gestational carrier, further expanding on them on her website and comparing the situation to her pregnancies with Saint, 2, and North, 4½.

“Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it’s the easy way out is completely wrong,” she notes.

“People assume it’s better because you don’t have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint.”

“I’m so grateful for modern technology and that this is even possible,” writes Kardashian West. “It’s not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrierand this was the best experience I’ve ever had. Our gestational carrier gave us the greatest gift one could give.”

…“The connection with our baby came instantly and it’s as if she was with us the whole time,” she adds. “Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true. We are so excited to finally welcome home our baby girl.”

The miracles of modern technology never cease to amaze us. Perhaps one day this will be an option more women can utilize. Congrats again to the Kardashian-West Family!

Jordyn Woods hopes viewers get to see the “real” her in the highly anticipated two-part finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which will address her alleged affair with Tristan Thompson.

“Everyone has their truth and their story, so you just go with it,” Jordyn, 21, said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Monday in response to the explosive trailer. “Everyone has the right to speak their truth,” she added.

When asked about how she thinks she will be portrayed, the model explained, “Hopefully, like myself, and the real me will shine.”

Although the scandal is still very fresh, Jordyn is doing her best to stay focused on her future.

“Life moves on,” Jordyn told ET. “Money doesn’t stop. The world doesn’t stop. And hopefully, everyone is just, you know, going forward.”

As for what’s next for Jordyn, she said she’s “staying busy, staying positive and just working. I don’t think I’ve ever been more busy.”

“I was on Grown-ish,” she revealed to ET. “That comes out next month, and, yeah, hopefully, more stuff is coming soon.”

We know all too well that reality television can make or break a person’s reputation based on their perceived behavior. Jordyn may get the short end of the stick when it comes to how the show deals with it, but the important thing is that Khloe and her family now see Tristan’s true colors and she has moved on. This episode is set to air on June 23rd.

[VIDEO] Clearing The Air! O.J. Simpson Says He NEVER Slept w/ Kris Jenner, & Khloe Kardashian is NOT His Daughter!

“Enough is enough,” is what O.J. Simpson is yelling to the masses as he is speaking against prevailing rumors that he and Kris Jenner slept together and that he is the biological father of Khloe Kardashian.  O.J. took to social media to clear his name in a video.

The “If I Did It” author called reports about the alleged tryst “bogus, bad, tasteless” in a video on his new Twitter account.

“Never, and I want to stress never, in any way shape or form, have I ever had any interest in Kris romantically or sexually,” said the 71-year-old ex-NFL star, adding: “and I never got any indication that she ever had any interest in me.”

“The Juice” said Kris’ ex-husband Robert Kardashian — who died of cancer in 2003 — was “like a brother” to him.

Addressing rumors that Khloe Kardashian is his daughter, Simpson said: “Khloe like all the girls, I’m very proud of, just like I know Bob would be if he was here, but facts of the matter is she’s not mine.”

The denial comes after Norman Prado, who claims to be Simpson’s ex-manager, told Page Six last month how the disgraced gridiron great once bragged about a 1990s hot-tub hookup with Kris.

The one-night stand allegedly happened when the ex-running back and then-wife Nicole, and their pals Robert and Kris Kardashian were vacationing together.

The Kardashians divorced shortly afterward in early 1991 and the Simpsons split by early 1992.

In his video, Simpson denied that Prado was ever his manager, saying “we many have done a deal here or there or whatever but none of these guys was anything remotely like a manager.”

Simpson has previously denied ever sleeping with Kardashian, telling a former prison guard he befriended that he “would never tap” the TV-personality.

He closed out his video by wishing his 574,000 followers a “Happy Father’s Day” and telling them to “take care.”

We are not sure what to believe, but we hope it can now die down. In our book, it is old gossip, and none of the parties involved are coming forward with DNA tests. We will keep you posted.

News outlets report that the “Girls Trip” star sent a statement to ticket holders Saturday, saying she cannot “in good faith” perform in Georgia unless it withdraws the so-called heartbeat bill. Haddish had been scheduled to perform June 22 at the Fox Theatre.

The new law would ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks, before many women know they are pregnant. Unless it’s blocked in court, it’s set to go into effect in 2020. The ACLU has already said the group will mount a legal challenge.

Major Hollywood studios have said they may reevaluate filming in Georgia if the law goes into effect.

This law is definitely affecting how Georgia’s sprawling film industry. Soon Atlanta may no longer be the Hollywood of The South.
