Kim Kardashian Surrogate Speaks Out: I’m Happy, Healthy and RICH!

As you’ve likely heard by now, Kim Kardashian welcomed her third child this week.

The baby was born via surrogate at Cedars Sinai Hospital in LA early Monday morning.

Kim made the announcement via her subscription-based app, but at this point, details are still relatively scarce.

We know the baby is a girl, and the delivery went smoothly–but that’s about it.

It might be weeks before Kim and Kanye go public with additional information, but one person who was directly involved in bringing their child into the world is speaking out … kind of.

Not much is known about the surrogate hired by Kim and Kanye, and it seems that according to her contract, she’s not allowed to speak to the press.

But that doesn’t mean her parents can’t speak to the press.

Yes, the anonymous surrogate has contacted her mother and father, and in turn, they gave an interview to Radar Online.

It might be the closest we’ll ever come to hearing from the surrogate directly.

Fortunately, the parents have remained anonymous, which means the surrogate is not in violation of her agreement with Kim and Kanye.

“She is doing well,” her mother tells Radar.

“[Tuesday] she told me she felt fine.”

Asked if there were any complications with the delivery, the surrogate’s father replied, “No, everything went well. As a matter of fact, she’s at home resting.”

“She’s safe at home with her husband,” the mother added.

Unfortunately, there are two matters on which the proud parents played it coy.

For starters, they refused to reveal if their daughter was a fan of Kim’s before carrying the reality star’s baby.

“She may have been!” her mother remarked vaguely, adding:

“According to what my daughter told me, yes, they got along.”

And per their daughter’s contract, the parents offered no information on how much Kim and Kanye paid for the use of her uterus.

We suppose that’s okay.

It’s not like we need an exact figure to tell us that the anonymous woman who had the honor of delivering the newest member of the Kardashian-West clan is now very, very wealthy.

Amber Portwood SLAMS Gary Shirley: I Made You Rich, Loser!

If you watched this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, then you know that Amber Portwood didn’t exactly come off looking great.

But amazingly, her tweets during the show proved even more damaging to her reputation!

The episode sees Amber’s baby daddy, Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina, voicing some of the same criticisms that fans have been directing at Amber in recent months.

Like so many of the show’s viewers, Gary and Kristina apparently feel that Amber should’ve spent more time looking into Andrew Glennon’s sketchy past before she started dating him seriously and got pregnant with his baby.

Not only that, they take issue with Amber not seeing her daughter for months and using her depression as a justification–despite the fact that she was apparently mentally healthy enough to begin dating Glennon.

Maybe Amber was depressed, and maybe too much is being made of Glennon’s past, but it’s not hard to see why a father and stepmother might be concerned by the situation.

And Gary voiced those concerns at length in the episode:

“I don’t know what skeletons he has in his closet, but honestly, she should have waited,” he said to Kristina.

“She should have taken more time with Leah and focused on her responsibility as being a mother than jumping into a relationship. Well, she was, like, ‘I was mourning.’ I know that you’re sad after breaking up with someone — I get it.”

“But your daughter can bring you just as much happiness,” Kristina interjected.

Not surprisingly, Gary agreed:

“From day one I’ve been a parent! From day one my issues never came in and stopped me from being a dad, you know?” he continued.

“I don’t have the option to not be a parent, but you can go off and do what you want to do. I mean, that would be f–king awesome! You know? And you’re OK with it because you’re used to it. But you know, there’s one person that’s not OK with it, and that’s Leah.”

From there, Kristina spiked the football by recounting a recent exchange with Leah:

“It’s just like she told me, you know? ‘Matt was in the picture. Mommy broke up with Matt. Mommy don’t come around then because she’s too depressed,'” she recalled.

“But then, all of a sudden, she brings over Andrew and she says: ‘Well Kristina, if she was too depressed to see me, she wasn’t too depressed to find a new man?’ And, you know, what do I say to that?”

Gary then recalled a period of time in which Leah was so depressed by her mother’s absence that she did nothing but sleep.

“Let’s adopt Leah,” Kristina proposed.

“I’m with you,” Gary replied.

Not surprisingly, Amber had much to say about the situation on social media:

“Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking sh!t about me! It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be?” she tweeted.

“Wait..in a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!”

And if you thought she’d stop there, you don’t know Amber:

“[Kristina] broke up her family for money and tv!” Amber tweeted, targeting Gary’s wife.

“Her husband got a restraining order on her cheating @ss with multiple people and then cheated with Gary! What about her daughter? Straight out of Gary’s mouth!!”

“Restraining order to keep my child from filming,” Kristina replied.

“I am an active mother to my children so quit hating. I’ve never stepped on your toes as a mother nor will I ever. I care for Leah when she is in our care. Love don’t hate.”

Then things got even more bizarre when Farrah Abraham’s father, Michael, interjected:

“Kristina stay strong. DO NOT LET ANYONE BULLY you. You’re the real proven mother figure here,” Michael tweeted.

“Gary has always been the rock solid father protecting his children with you in full support and I’m thankful to God for both of you – the world knows the truth and that’s pure FACT.”

We’d say this situation can’t get any weirder, but Michael Abraham just got involved, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, watch Teen Mom OG online to get caught up on all of this season’s intense drama.

Teen Mom Salaries: You Won’t Believe How Rich This Cast Is!

Teen Mom: OG and Teen Mom 2 are among the most popular series in MTV's storied history.

The stars may not enjoy the same universal name recognition as Snooki or The Situation, but their fans are an intensely devoted bunch with appetitse for every detail of the women's personal lives.

So it should come as no surprise that there's considerable interest in just how much the Teen Moms get paid.

Of course, given their many side projects and business ventures, the amount that each cast member pulls in varies wildly from one to the next … but suffice it to say, they're all doing very well.

Here's a breakdown of just how much each mom is earning these days:

 

1. Catelynn Lowell: $ 25,000 per episode

Catelynn is earning the standard rate for stars of the original series. And while she has a few other revenue streams in place, she’s not on her 24/7 grind like some of her co-stars.

2. Clothing By Cate

Catelynn and husband Tyler Baltierra recently launched a children’s clothing line. The venture is too new to determine if it will be profitable or not.

3. Amber Portwood: $ 25,000 per episode

Amber also pulls in $ 25,000 for just a few days work on TM:OG. Unlike Catelynn, however, she puts a lot of time into her side businesses.

4. Hard Times For Haute

Amber launched her “online boutique” Forever Haute with the help of then-fiance Matt Baier. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that the business is faring much better than the relationship. Rumors that Haute is out of business appear to be premature, but multiple insiders have confirmed the site has yet to turn a profit.

5. Maci Bookout: $ 25,000 per episode

Some reality shows pay their more popular cast members a bit extra. Not Teen Mom: OG, however, which keeps the salaries consistent across the board.

6. Off the Bookout

Unlike some of her other cast members, Maci doesn’t seem to have much time for side projects. With three kids to raise and an increasingly problematic ex, we suppose that’s no surprise. Besides, no matter how hard she hustles, Maci could never hope to out-earn TM:OG’s wealthiest star…
