Chances are that you know plenty about Kim Kardashian herself but how much do you know about her four children?
Kim Kardashian’s kids

Kim Kardashian's pregnancies
Sadly the Keeping up with the Kardashian’s star did not have a very enjoyable experience during her pregnancies. She experienced preeclampsia during her first pregnancy, which forced her to deliver North at 34 weeks. With both her pregnancies, she suffered placenta accreta after delivery, eventually undergoing surgery to remove the placenta and scar tissue.
After the difficulties of both of these pregnancies, doctor's advised Kim not to become pregnant again, leading her down the route of surrogacy for her third and fourth children.
Speaking about her experiences of pregnancy in a post on her website, Kim wrote: "I'm gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL! I don't enjoy one moment of it and I don't understand people who enjoy it.
"Maybe it's the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindf**k of how your body expands and nothing fits. I just always feel like I'm not in my own skin.
"People just don't tell you all of the gross things that happen during pregnancy or after. Do you know you basically have to wear a diaper for two months afterwards! LOL! No one told me that! #SoSexy."
However Kim insisted that it is worth it in the end. She completed her blog post by writing: "Really, it is all SO worth it when you have your precious baby in the end! So for all my complaining, it's 100 per cent worth it and more!!!"
