The reality TV star confirmed the news on her show "Keeping up with the Kardashians."

When did Kim break the news?

In the teaser trailer for season 14, Kim is talking to her younger sister Khloe Kardashian via Facetime, which is when Kim asks her "what happens every time I say, 'Guess what?'." Khloe responds by saying that "the person's pregnant?," then Kim breaks the new that "We're having a baby!."

Kim's pregnancy troubles pushed the couple to opt for surrogacy

During an episode of "Keeping up with the Kardashians" back in April, Kim discloses that she and husband, Kanye West are giving surrogacy a try after she was informed that a third pregnancy could not happen. During her first pregnancy, with daughter North, she is told that she is suffering from placenta accreta -- a life-threatening condition.

In the same episode, Kim said that she feels like surrogacy is her "reality" and probably "the only other option" for her. The premiere of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" season 14 will go on air this Sunday, at 9 p.m. ET on "E!".

What will the surrogate get?

It was revealed by "People" and "E! Online" in June, that Kim and Kanye have paid a hefty sum to a surrogate agency, who will find them a suitable candidate for carrying their baby. It was further disclosed that the chosen woman would be paid around $45,000 throughout the pregnancy, as well as a bonus of $5,000 each if there are chances of a twin or triplet child.
