The over 5,000 fans at Kanye West’s Atlantic City concert over the weekend were in for a big surprise when West suddenly asked his band to stop the music.
A beaming West said “Stop the music for a second. Can we make some noise for my baby mama right quick while she’s here?”
As soon as West announced the long-awaited news, the Twitterverse went crazy, Kardashians included.
Both Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian tweeted how excited they were for their sister:
Kris Jenner also tweeted about the news:
And Kim confirmed the news herself by posting this picture of her and her baby daddy on Twitter with the caption “New year, new beginnings”:
“It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby. We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mum and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us. Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!!! Xo”
Kardashian is currently 12 weeks along in her pregnancy. In case you were wondering, the superstar baby was conceived somewhere near the Vatican while the couple was in Rome celebrating Kardashian’s 32 birthday.
Kimye confirmed the rumours about their relationship in May, but the couple had been suspected to be dating for weeks before they became public.
West has rapped about his baby mama in a few of his songs, including “Clique” and “Cold.”
In “Clique,” West references the sex tape that initially made Kim famous: “My girl a superstar from a home movie.” In “Cold” Kanye calls out Kim’s ex Kris Humphries: “And I’ll admit, I had fell in love with Kim
Around the same time she had fell in love with him, Well that’s cool, baby girl, do ya thang, Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.”
Kardashian and Humphries’ divorce is not yet finalised, despite the reality TV star filing for divorce from the NBA star last October after only 72 days of marriage.
West’s ex, Amber Rose, is also currently pregnant with rapper Wiz Khalifa’s child.
