Kim Kardashian's pregnancy cravings, like greasy cheeseburgers and ice cream sundaes, caused much controversy, but the reality star’s plans to eat baby North West’s placenta made even the strongest of stomachs cringe.
“I definitely want to eat it,” the then-pregnant Kardashian told her family on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. “There’s a cook book of different ways you have to cook it,” Kardashian continued, shocking her siblings who were mid-meal at the dinner table. Kanye West’s girlfriend was so adamant about eating daughter North’s placenta that she asked the family’s personal chef, Sharone, if she had experience with cooking the unusual dish.
“My wife did that,” Sharone said, sharing the purported health benefits of eating a child's placenta. “It’s supposed to be good in two ways. One, it’s supposed to help with post-partum, and also it’s great for menopause,” the Kardashian chef explained. Seizing the opportunity, fellow diner Scott Disick quickly chimed in, suggesting that Kris Jenner have a bite.
“You guys can split it,” Disick said to Kardashian and Jenner. “Would you share with mom?” the Lord quipped. Clearly repulsed by the prospect, Jenner made a show of quivering at the idea, declaring that she was suddenly no longer hungry. “This is such a beautiful dinner. I just lost my appetite,” Jenner said. “That is the most disgusting thing I’ve ever heard!” the Kardashian momager exclaimed.
Yet, Disick’s longtime girlfriend took the proposition rather seriously, and even revealed her plans to get pregnant again simply for the chance to taste the baby byproduct. “Why would you not take it? That’s the question I want to know,” Kourtney said. “I want to have a third child just to eat the placenta,” the mother of two added.
Kourtney’s declaration may have been a harbinger for things to come, with rumors swirling that she is pregnant again. “Kourtney has confessed she’s expecting. She’s very excited and only telling a select few right now,” a source revealed. The 34-year-old has been photographed in a series of conspicuously high-waisted shorts and flowing tops, further fueling pregnancy speculation.
“Kourtney has that kind of glow she had with Mason and Penelope…they wanted to have one right after Penelope,” an insider explained. “A baby now makes sense – it’s very easy to get pregnant after giving birth once, let alone twice.”
