More from Mamás Latinas: Kim Kardashian & Kanye West hire surrogate for baby #3

"The entire family is over the moon. Kim has been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate," a source told PEOPLE

Kim carried her 1 ½ year-old son Saint and her 4-year-old daughter, North, but both pregnancies came with complications. In fact, they were complications she really couldn't risk with a third pregnancy. 

"Given her health scares in the past, Kim felt the need to hire a surrogacy agency that helped serve as the liaison in finding a healthy woman who would be a great surrogate option for her and Kanye. Both of them have been super involved in the process," a source told PEOPLE. "They want everything to be perfect and for the baby to be extremely healthy. They don't want any complications and Kim is providing an ideal eating regimen and diet so everyone knows what the baby is consuming before it's born."

The source also confirmed that Kim and Kanye hired the surrogate in June. Kim had been considering having a third baby but was advised by her doctor not to get pregnant again

"Having more kids is definitely going to be a struggle," Kim said on a previous episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. "I've gone through so much with really bad deliveries that the doctors don't feel like it's safe for me to conceive again myself. The surgery is really the one last thing I can try. I want my kids to have siblings and I want to know that I did everything I could to make this happen." 

Kim did have the surgery but unfortunately it didn't fix the problem. She developed bladder complications after the procedure that were so bad, doctors had to put in a catheter inside her so she could pee. It was after this incident that she seriously considered hiring a surrogate. 

Before giving birth to Saint, Kim wrote a blog post on her site about her risky pregnancies. She had developed a serious condition called preeclampsia during her pregnancy with North, that forced her to deliver almost six weeks early. She also developed a condition called placenta accreta, a high-risk condition that happens when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall and doesn't detach itself.  She experienced complications again while delivering her son Saint who was breeched. So it makes sense that she decided not to carry her third child. 

I'm super excited for Kim and Kanye and can't wait to share additional details!
