Much has been said about Chicago West, the third child of Kim Kardashian shares with her husband, rapper Kanye West.
In the past few months, the world has cooed over Chi’s debut on Snapchat, gasped at the extravagant gifts she’s received from her celebrity friends, and even felt for Kim as she described how hard it was, after being pregnant twice before, to watch another woman carry her child to term.
But there is one question that people are still asking, and Kim is ready for it: just how much choice did Kim and Kanye have over the sex of their future baby?
In a new interview with ELLE Magazine‘s April issue, the 37-year-old said the choice was a “really tricky thing” and admitted she asked herself which sex she would prefer.

In the end, the couple chose to go with option that would give their future child the best chance.
“I just said, ‘Which one is the healthiest? Pick the healthiest one,’ and that was a girl,” she said.
On an episode of Keeping With The Kardashians, Kim had already admitted that she and Kanye had already lived through the experience of implanting an embryo and having it not take.
The couple had just one remaining healthy embryo left to implant into their chosen surrogate.
