Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have reportedly pumped in a whopping $ 2 Million to maintain the secrecy of their surrogate. The Kardashian-West couple is expecting their third child, however, due to the reality show star's earlier pregnancy complications, the couple opted for surrogacy.

The Sun Online reported that the celebrity couple has hired round-the-clock security to guard the surrogate mother of their unborn third child. An insider told The Sun that the couple have rented a place about an hour outside LA for their surrogate.

"I mean, this is the last place you would think to find the surrogate for one of the richest families in Hollywood. It's a nice house, actually, split level, and Kanye has cameras put in everywhere in the house and outside too for safety and security - So with the rent on the house, expenses for the security staff and their wages - that's around $1.5million for the surrogate's safety.," the source added.

Kim first broke the news at the Harper's BAZAAR 'ICONS By Carine Roitfeld' event. In an exclusive interview with E! Online, the star spoke about the rising speculations and rumours regarding her child. "I've definitely seen a lot of things, we've never confirmed anything. So, I think when we're ready to talk about it we will, and I think it's super invasive when people are just... So many details out there, and like I've never heard this, I've never heard this. Like whatever. We have not confirmed it, and that's that. I'll let you know when we're ready," she added.

There are also reports that Kim and Kanye's surrogate is expecting a girl and is due in January 2018. The couple already has two children four-year-old North and one-year-old Saint.
