This was revealed by Hollywood Life, which also stated that the said bag was Kim’s very first Birkin, but was too big for the child. Moreover, Kim was criticized in June 2017 for hanging a picture of Saint in a car seat facing forward. This enraged most of her fans, who criticized her for disregarding California law, which states that children under two years of age may not sit in a forward-facing car seat unless they are at least 40 inches tall or weigh at least 40 pounds.

Saint, the son of reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her rapper husband Kanye West, now has a younger sister named Chicago. The little girl was born on January 15, 2018, by a pregnant woman after Kardashian was warned of possible health complications if she became pregnant again.
Kim Kardashian suffered from placenta accreta during her pregnancy with North and Saint. This disease, which affects about 5% of women in the world, occurs when the placenta grows on the wall of the uterus, making it impossible for it to detach easily at birth. As for Kardashian and West, the doctor advised them not to have another child unless through surrogacy, which they agreed to, and found a mother from San Diego, “in her late 20s”, to carry the child. The nameless woman reportedly received $45,000 in 10 to $4,500 monthly installments, and a down payment of about $70,000 was made to the agency from which they received it. Although this has not yet been confirmed, there are also rumors that the surrogate mother for Kardashian and her rapper husband is again pregnant with twins.
