Reality star and fashion icon Kim Kardashian is expecting her first child with rap superstar Kanye West. The news broke after West announced the news to a crowd at a concert on December 30 at Revel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The couple first started dating in April, which came controversially soon after Kardashian’s failed marriage with Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries. Rumors that the star was pregnant began swirling last week when the couple was spotted leaving an OB-GYN’s office. Apparently, Kardashian was experiencing acute morning sickness and was treated.
During the concert, 35-year-old West said, “Stop the music and make noise for my baby mama.” The 32-year-old Kardashian was in the audience. Many members of the Kardashian family had been keeping the pregnancy a secret.
Sister Khloe Kardashian tweeted, “Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!” According to TMZ, Kardashian is now 12 weeks pregnant.
In September, Kardashian expressed that she wanted to have children with West. “At the space that I am in life now, kids are definitely something I want. I think I wanted that before. I think I fell in love so quickly and wanted that to be my life so badly but I just didn’t take the time to find someone.”
Social media exploded, as celebrities reacted to the news. “The Soup,” a television show on E!, said, “Most pregnancies last about nine months, or about four marriages in Kim time. #kimye.”
