金·卡戴珊的代孕者能赚多少钱?

Valentina Zarya 2017年09月11日

卡戴珊家族的下一个成员仍在孕育当中,而这个成员已经花掉了家里一大笔钱。

《人物》网站周三上午报道称,卡戴珊与肯耶的代孕者已经怀孕了。尽管这对夫妻有理由大肆庆祝,但也意味着他们要给这位怀上他们第三个孩子的女性一笔丰厚的报酬。

按照Growing Generations的首席执行官和合伙人泰奥·马丁内斯的分析,这里列出了卡戴珊的代孕者可能获得的收入。这是一家位于洛杉矶的代孕机构,其客户包括许多名流夫妻。(尽管马丁内斯拒绝向《财富》透露这些客户的姓名,但据报道,尼尔·帕特里克·哈里斯和大卫·伯卡夫妻曾接受过他们的服务。2010年,哈里斯曾对美国广播公司表示:“我可以告诉你,Growing Generations太棒了,他们让我有了三个孩子。”)

孕前

代孕者在怀孕之前必须接受一系列健康检查,同时还要办理冗长的法律手续,确保在孩子出生后父母的亲权不受侵害。她在这期间付出的时间和努力将会得到酬劳。

预计酬劳:3,000美元

孕中

代孕者一般每周都会得到2,000美元至3,000美元的酬劳。

预计酬劳(40周):80,000美元-120,000美元

孕后

孩子出生约两周后,代孕者还会收到一笔约为总酬劳三分之一的费用。换句话说,如果她在怀孕期间得到了12万美元,这时候还能获得大约6万美元的一次性付款。

预计酬劳:40,000美元-60,000美元

马丁内斯解释道,那些有经验的代孕者能够拿到区间内较高的酬劳,因为她们已经证明过自己的身体有能力生下健康的孩子,情绪上也更加稳定,所以市场需求更大。

支出和额外费用

当然,还有许多潜在支出,尤其是对马丁内斯所说的“VIP客户”而言。最常见的要求是代孕者须居住在洛杉矶,孩子也要生在洛杉矶。如果代孕者不是本地人(Growing Generations只有40%的代孕者是),客户还得承担代孕者全部的重新安置费和生活费。其他的附加服务包括多胞胎(额外的孩子每个5,000美元)和剖腹产(2,500美元)。

马丁内斯表示,代孕者怀上了名流的孩子,不代表她能拿到名流的“奖金”。他解释道:“我们不认为奖金有助于增加保密性。”所有的代孕者都要签署保密协议。

假设卡戴珊选择了一名位于洛杉矶、经验丰富的代孕者,而且整个过程一切顺利,那么全部的费用加起来约为18万美元。

《人物》曾在6月报道称,已经是两个孩子的母亲的卡戴珊决定不自己生育第三胎,因为她之前的两次怀孕都遭遇了侵入性胎盘的危险状况。

卡戴珊夫妻并非第一对选择外人来实现家庭完整的名流。音乐家艾尔顿·约翰、女演员莎拉·杰西卡·帕克和深夜节目主持人吉米·法隆都公开谈论过代孕事宜。(财富中文网)

People reported Wednesday morning that Kimye's surrogate is pregnant. While that gives the couple plenty to celebrate, it also means a sizable paycheck for the woman who will carry their third child.

Here's the breakdown of how much a surrogate such as Kardashian's is likely to be paid, according to Teo Martinez, CEO and partner of Growing Generations, a Los Angeles-based surrogacy agency that counts multiple celebrity couples among its clients. (While Martinez declined to name names to Fortune, the agency has reportedly served Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka. Harris told ABC back in 2010: "I can tell you that Growing Generations is great … they helped me have three kids!")

Pre-pregnancy

Before a surrogate becomes pregnant, she has to go through a series of health screenings, as well as a lengthy legal process to ensure that there will be no contest as to the parental rights to the child after he or she is born. She is paid for the time and effort.

Estimated cost: $3,000

During pregnancy

Surrogates are typically paid every four weeks, with monthly payments ranging between $2,000 and $3,000.

Estimated cost (for 40 weeks): $80,000 - $120,000

Post-pregnancy

About two weeks after the birth of the child, the surrogate receives a lump sum equal to about a third of her total compensation. In other words, if she received $120,000 during the course of the pregnancy, she would get a lump sum payment of roughly $60,000.

Estimated cost: $40,000 - 60,000

The higher end of the range is for surrogates who have been through the process before—they are in greater demand as they've shown both their physical ability to deliver healthy children and their emotional stability, Martinez explains.

Expenses and extras

There are, of course, plenty of potential expenses, particularly for "VIP clients," as Martinez calls them. The most common request is that the surrogate live and the child be born in L.A. If the surrogate is not local (only 40% of Growing Generations' surrogates are), the client is expected to pay for all relocation and living expenses. Other possible add-ons include multiple births ($5,000 per extra child) and Caesarian section ($2,500).

Just because the surrogate is carrying a celebrity child does not mean she gets a celebrity "bonus," Martinez says. "We don't necessarily believe in compensation to add secrecy," he explains; all surrogates sign confidentiality agreements.

A plausible grand total—assuming the Kardashians go with an experienced surrogate based in L.A. and everything else goes smoothly—is about $180,000.

People reported back in June that Kardashian, already a mom of two, decided not to carry her third child due to her struggles with a dangerous condition called placenta accreta during her previous pregnancies.

The couple is not the first celebrity duo to hire an outsider to help complete their family; musician Elton John, actress Sarah Jessica Parker, and late night host Jimmy Fallon have openly discussed the process.
