Blue Ivy is so 2012. 2013 is all about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s baby. In a surprise announcement, the superstar couple revealed that they are expecting their first child.
During his show at Revel in Atlantic City on Sunday night, the G.O.O.D. Music chief told the crowd of more than 5,000 at Ovation Hall that his girlfriend is pregnant (AP later confirmed the news).
He rapped to the crowd, “Now you having my baby,” which received roaring applause. “Can you make some noise for my baby mama right quick?” said a smiling Yeezy.
Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, also tweeted about the news. “Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I can! Another angel to welcome to our family. Overwhelmed with excitement!” tweeted Kourtney.
The congratulations started pouring in on Twitter from their fellow celebrities including M.I.A., who wrote, “congratssssss !!!”
According to E! News, Kim is about 12 weeks into her pregnancy.
The rapper and reality TV star went public with their relationship in March. Kardashian was previously married to NBA player Kris Humphries.
