Step aside, Blue Ivy Carter, there's more lil' pop royalty on the way. Rap star Kanye West on Sunday night unveiled at an Atlantic City, N.J., concert that his significant other, Kim Kardashian, was expecting their first child. "Can we make some noise for my baby mama right now?" West said from the stage.
But never fear, baby watchers, just in case you wanted something a little more legit than some Kanye stage patter to confirm the news, Kardashian has you covered. She affirmed the news on her official site Monday morning.
Kardashian wrote, "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."
A release date for the child was not yet revealed. E! News, however, writes that Karashian is about 12 weeks along.
