Kim Kardashian is to reveal she does not want any more children with husband Kanye West in the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KWTK), set for broadcast on Monday evening (17 April).
The social media figure makes the admission when questioned by Khloe Kardashian's best friend, Malika Haqq.
"Are you done having kids?" asks Malika, to which Kim replies, "Me, personally, yes."
The 36-year-old currently has two children with the rapper — daughter North West, 3, and son, Saint, one — after the couple married in 2014.
Her stance marks a sharp contrast to previous statements, where she expressed a keen desire to have more children and raises fresh questions over the state of the couple's relationship.
It has been a turbulent year for the pair, from the socialite's Paris robbery to West's much-publicised spell in hospital after a mental health crisis.
KUWTK fans were previously able to gain a glimpse of the drama behind the headlines, as cameras caught the exact moment Kardashian learnt that West had walked out of a Saint Pablo Tour date in the midst of a "psychiatric emergency".
In a phone conversation, she was shown in floods of tears saying: "He walked off the stage after three songs. Don't scare me, please. What's going on?"
Hours later the star was taken to hospital for evaluation, suffering from symptoms of "severe exhaustion".
Despite claims the couple were "working hard" to fix their marriage, some fans commented that a recent Instagram post of the family smiling for Easter did not look natural.
One commenter concluded, "Kanye West does not even hold his wife by the waist or whatever. She's right next to him but his arms are by his body," while another branded the picture "forced".
Others, however, felt the picture was "lovely".
But, irrespective of divorce rumours, Kardashian – who previously admitted suffering complications during pregnancies with her two children – may look to use a surrogate.
On the topic, she remained noncommittal, saying: "I feel I need some time."
