Kim and Kanye are having a baby!

Story Highlight

Looks like Blue Ivy Carter will have a little playmate… or frenemie if Beyonce and Kim are anything to go by.

When most couples want to practice for having a baby, they get a dog. Kanye West got Kim Kardashian a kitten (RIP Mercy, the less said about you the better), and now the loved-up pair are expecting a real life baby.

Kanye announced the happy news at his concert in Atlantic City last night, and immediately #kimye started trending.

Kim apparently wasn’t prepared for the announcement, but started crying with joy as Yeezy told the packed arena their happy news.

She posted a confirmation on her website in a post entitled: ‘New Year, New Beginnings’ saying:

“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”

Obviously the Kardashian Klan are thrilled – a new cast member for the juggernaut that is the reality show, and maybe they are also thinking magazine deals, TV specials, baby clothes, a name beginning with ‘K’….

Kim’s sister Khloe tweeted: “Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!!! LOVE is everything!!!!”

So it looks like Jay Z and Beyonce’s baby Blue Ivy will soon have a little friend…. or frenemie, if their mummies’ frosty relationship is anything to go by. Let’s hope it’s a little boy, then they can have a romance like a modern day West Side Story.
