KIM Kardashian has admitted that she’s finding it difficult to come to terms with another woman carrying her third child.
The reality star, 37, opted to use a surrogate for her new arrival after suffering complications in her previous pregnancies that meant she would struggle with the pregnancy herself.

However, after initially happy to not go through the physical pregnancy symptoms herself, Kim has admitted that the “easy option” was a lot harder than anticipated.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: 'You know, it is really different. Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong.”
Admitting that she was struggling with another woman carrying her child, she added: “I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control.
“Obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a good bond and relationship with.

“But, knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not my baby now, it's hard for me.
“So, it's definitely a harder experience than I anticipated just in the control area.”
Kim’s comments come as differing reports claim that she is either smothering, or barely seeing the woman carrying her child.
