The Great Kardashian-Jenner Baby Boom may be over for now (hi, Chicago, Stormi, and True!), but that doesn't mean Kris Jenner won't be getting any more grandchildren. According to a new report from Us Weekly, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly considering having one more baby.

One source claims that Kimye has "one last embryo left," and that its sex is male. Another insider said that the couple, already parents to five-year-old daughter North, two-year-old son Saint, and seven-month-old daughter Chicago, are reportedly planning to implant that embryo in a gestational carrier "soon."

The Wests previously turned to a gestational carrier to carry Chicago, who was born in January. Kardashian West has been open about her experiences with preeclampsia and placenta accreta while pregnant with North and Saint, her doctor's warnings that she shouldn't carry any more children herself, and her subsequent feelings about surrogacy. "Anyone that says or thinks [surrogacy] is just the easy way out is just completely wrong. I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control," she said in November 2017, shortly after confirming that she and Kanye were expecting their third child. "Knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not, you know, my baby now, it's hard for me. So, it's definitely a harder experience than I anticipated, just in the control area."

And earlier this year, after Chicago's arrival, Kardashian West shared why her fourth child will likely be her last. "My home and my heart feel really full right now, in the best way," she said in her April 2018 cover story for Elle. "I don’t think I could handle more than [four]. My time is spread really thin. And I think it's important that in all couples, the mom gives the husband as much attention as the kids."

Time to start brainstorming one last instantly iconic West baby name—maybe Kanye will reconsider Noel?
