Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been married since 2014 and until now, they are still huge subjects of wide media coverage. Known for being a jewelry nut, the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star previously said that she is taking a leave of buying pricey jewelry. This was after she was robbed by five people in Paris, who were dressed as police officers and stole roughly $10 million worth of jewelry. Recently, reports suggest that the couple won the bidding for fashion figure and wife of former President John F. Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy Onassis' vintage watch for almost $400k.

According to CDL, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West secretly made the bid at Christie's Auction House on Wednesday in New York City for Jackie Kennedy Onassis' Cartier Tank watch. The couple reportedly paid $395k for the vintage watch but it is said that the famous socialite and reality star is not putting it on display. Guess what? She is not worried about wearing this antique and historical piece of jewelry.

Christie's Auction House was looking forward to getting around $120k for Jackie Kennedy Onassis' Cartier Tank vintage watch - "a diamond-less, black band and gold face timepiece." However, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made the bid and paid $395k. Obviously, the infamous couple doubled the amount that the auction house has expected.

Some fans believe that the rapper purchased this watch for the reality star to pacify her about having another baby. Reports say that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been fighting over baby #3 as they've been experiencing difficulties in having one. Recently, Blasting News shared that the couple has hired a surrogate for their next baby and it seems that they are not just expecting a baby but babies!

A source close to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West told Hollywood Life that the couple is thrilled that they are expecting twins through the surrogate. "Kim has always wanted twins, and due to health issues has needed the help of a surrogate to make her dreams a reality," the source revealed. "It is very early on in the pregnancy so it will be a while before they make anything public."

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly paying the surrogate for $4,500 every month for ten months. They were also required to pay $68,850 deposit to the surrogacy agency. An additional payment of $5,000 will be given to the surrogate because she is pregnant with twins.
