Kim Kardashian West planned to freeze her eggs.

The reality TV star - who has a 17-month old daughter North with her husband, rapper Kanye West - was told she may never conceive naturally by doctors and was making plans to undergo the fertility treatment shortly before discovering she was pregnant.

She said: ''A few years ago, I was told I could never get pregnant. Three different doctors told me the same thing, which is why I wanted to have my eggs frozen.

''I was just about to do that when I found out I was pregnant with North.''

Despite finding it difficult to conceive the first time round with the 'bound 2' hitmaker, Kim is hoping to add another daughter and the couple's first son to her brood in the future.

She said: ''I want a boy and another girl; I want it to start happening straight away. I loved being part of a huge family - and I want that for North. We'd do IVF if nothing happens, but we both want to keep trying naturally.''
