"It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby," Kardashian posted Monday on her blog. "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."
West had announced the news during a concert the night before at the Revel Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey. "Now you having my baby," he told the crowd of 5,000 in song form as he free-styled during the song "Runaway." Later on he asked the crowd if they could "make some noise for my baby mama right now?"
Members of the Kardashian family were quick to post on Twitter their excitement over the news. "Im a happy girl !!!!!!!!! Wowza!," said mom Kris Jenner. "Oh BABY BABY BABY!!"
"KIMYE!!!!!," tweeted younger sister Khloe Kardashian Odom. "Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!!! LOVE is everything!!!!"
Kardashian and West were friends for years but did not start dating until approximately nine months ago. Her divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries, whom she separated from after 72 days of marriage in October 2011, is not yet final.
