American reality television star Kim Kardashian is reportedly thinking of hiring a surrogate for her second pregnancy.

According to Radar Online, the 34-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star does not want to lose her hard-earned post-baby curves.

"There's no way she's having a kid anytime soon," a source close to Kardashian told the website. "It took so long to get her body back that she's even told friends she might have someone else carry the baby the next time around!"

"She had a difficult pregnancy," the insider added. "She was sick and in bed a lot."

However, the source added that "they think she was probably joking about using a surrogate."

In August, rapper Kanye West's wife had taken to Twitter to reveal she is having a hard time bouncing back to her normal weight after having North West.

Earlier this year, Kardashian revealed she wanted more children with Kanye.

"I'm gonna have to go through the pregnancy again, which mine was a really difficult. It was a really difficult pregnancy. So, it's tough," she said.

"I would love to have another child. I would love two more, but, we'll see. I'm gonna have one more and see what it's like," Kardashian went on.
