You can’t fake stupid and, really, that’s what Kim Kardashian is if she plans on having another child. If you have paid any sort of attention to her over the past few years, you will know that she suffered from placenta accretia while pregnant and almost died as a result.
Now, instead of being happy and grateful for her two healthy children, North, 3, and Saint, 1, she thinks she and her husband, Kanye West, should continue to expand their brood.
In clips for Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim tells her family that she’s trying for another baby and explains: “I want my kids to have siblings, but the doctors don’t feel like it’s safe for me.”
Her mom, Kris Jenner, who told her “you could bleed to death” when touching on this very topic last fall, responded “I don’t want you to do something that would put you in danger” while Kim’s sisters, Kourtney and Khloe expressed their shock.
This is such a dumb plan for a million reasons. Hasn’t anyone learned from the death of Kanye’s mother, Donda West? Her doctor rejected her, saying she was an unsuitable candidate, for plastic surgery so she went and found someone who would ignore her medical history (a situation that led then-governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger to sign a law changing the procedures surrounding cosmetic surgery in California). Tragically, she did not survive the procedure.
When you don’t listen to medical advice and things go wrong, you can only blame yourself. It’s too bad that Kim can’t have the family size she wants but while she’s trying to give her kids another sibling, she could end up costing them their mother.
Be smart, people!
