Kanye and I are expecting a baby.” She went on to add that both felt blessed and fortunate and expressed a longing that it would be have been great if Kanye’s late mother Donda and her late father Robert, were still around to share in their moment of joy.

The two got married last year in August, in a much publicized grandiose event but the marriage that made world headlines lasted a little more than two months. The divorce has yet to come through.
The celebrity power couple is being inundated with congratulatory messages and fans are wondering if the baby’s name would also start with a K, as all Kardashian clan do.
Kardashian’s sister Kourtney excitedly tweeted that this was one news she desperately wanted to hear and something she wanted to proclaim to the whole world and now she could do so. She wrote that she was overwhelmed with excitement to welcome yet another angel into the family.

Let’s keep God’s blessings coming!”
Even before Kim tweeted for the whole world to know, her rapper boyfriend and father of the baby revealed the secret to a crowd of more than 5,000 fans at Revel Resort’s Ovation Hall, asking them to “stop the music and make noise for my baby mama,” pointing to Kardashian who was also in the audience. “God brought us a whole new plan, baby ’Cause now you’re having my baby,” he sang – the crowd roared in approval.
The announcement caught even Kim by surprise as both had decided to keep the news under wraps until the tell-tale baby bump started showing. She told reporters that she had no idea that he would break the news in such a public manner. However, given that in the audience, apart from Kim, where his relatives and her mother Kris Jenner, Kanye felt that the time was opportune for the secret to be out.
Kim shed tears of happiness as he regaled her with one of her favorite songs, “Lost in the World.”
