Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker who embraced parenthood as they welcomed baby Rocky Thirteen, now feel anxious to give birth to a second child.

It is reported by the Mirror that the couple thought to opt for surrogacy to welcome their second child next year.

But the fertility expert Tracey Sainsbury considered The Kardashians star and the Adam’s Song singer might find attempting to conceive a second child “more stressful.” than their initial experience.

The expert said, "Trying to conceive is stressful, especially when you have a child, more stressful sometimes as you don't just want another child, you want a sibling for your child.”

She went on to say, “Pregnancy and birth experiences may increase anxiety around a future pregnancy hence couples may prefer surrogacy.”

Sainsbury shared, “But in order to use a gestational surrogate, embryos would need to be created, which would mean a further IVF cycle, so the plan may be for egg donation and surrogacy or traditional surrogacy, which is much less common."

Dr Gillian Lockwood also assumed that past experiences of Kourtney with IVF might have influenced her choice to explore surrogacy as an option.

She described, "Women, especially those who have had failure with IVF, may choose to use a surrogate for many reasons.

Lockwood added, "Sometimes they have health issues or a history of recurrent miscarriage that makes them fear that they cannot safely carry a pregnancy. Many women who choose or need to use donor eggs also opt for surrogacy."

It is pertinent to mention that Kourtney has three from her previous relationship with Scott Disick while Travis is also a father of two children that he shared with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler in addition to a step-daughter.

Rocky marks the first child that Kourtney and Travis have welcomed together.
