Kim Kardashian Is Crazy to Consider Being Khloe's Surrogate

kim kardashianThink what you want of Kim Kardashian, but you can't say she's a bad sister -- especially when it comes to Khloe. Kim recently said that her newly-married sister, who's been having trouble conceiving, jokingly asked her if she'd be her surrogate. Ha-ha, funny, right? Wrong! Kim's actually considering it. Or at least she's saying she's considering it. She stated, “I think I have a couple more years when I just want my body to myself. At 35, I promise I’ll consider it.”

I've gotta hand it to Kim, that's really sweet. I wouldn't do anything like that for my sister. Partly because, holy hell, that's a lot to ask of someone, but mainly because I don't think there could be a worse surrogate than someone's sibling or close relative.

I'm sure there's a fair share of you out there who will disagree with me, and no -- I have never been in the position of being asked to be someone's surrogate, nor have I ever asked someone to be my surrogate. But I can say with the utmost of certainly that I wouldn't do it for my sister and I sure as hell wouldn't want her to do it for me. It's just too weird.

If I ever were to carry a child on behalf of my sibling, I'd never be able to shake the feeling, once the baby was born, that it was my baby. I know myself, and I'm just not the type of person who could be pregnant with a child for nine months -- and feel her every kick and move -- and then watch her grow up at the hand of someone else. No way. And the same goes for the opposite -- I would never be able to handle knowing that my sister was actually the mother of my child. In a weird way, I feel like it would almost pain me to see them together -- because I wouldn't be able to not look at them as actual mother and daughter.

For women who have the emotional wherewithal to go through with something like this, I applaud you. You are much stronger, and probably more evolved, than I. But it just isn't for me. I would rather never see the baby I birthed -- or the mother who birthed my baby -- again.

Would you ever ask a sibling to be a surrogate?
