She said on her site: “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 mom 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.”
The news was first released by the baby’s father however when Kanye West said to the audience during his Atlantic City concert on Sunday night: “make some noise for my baby mama right now?”
Kanye’s words were instantly shared by many of the audience via the social networks and those watching said that Kim seemed as surprised by his announcement as many of the audience were. Perhaps the couple had not planned the announcement but Kim seemed happy to confirm the good news today.
Kim and Kanye have been in a relationship for 8 months now and the talk for some time has been that the relationship has been more serious than was first thought. At the beginning many thought that the relationship was more of a publicity stunt for them both but today’s news is likely to put that to rest.
Following the announcement of Kim’s pregnancy the two main topics seem to be: 1) what will the baby be called? and 2) will the baby be due at the same time as Kate Middleton’s?
Kanye’s mood should be improved by the news that he is to become a father as he has seemed to be in something of a bad mood on his previous dates at the Ovation Hall in New Jersey. At his earlier concerts he has stated that he will not be attending the Grammy Awards next year after he failed to win Best Album this year (cries of throwing toys out of the pram?). He also said that he would be cancelling his planned world concert tour with Lady Gaga.
