Talk about a New Year’s surprise!
Kanye West dropped a major bombshell Sunday night during an Atlantic City concert when he revealed that he and girlfriend Kim Kardashian are expecting a baby.
During Sunday’s concert at Revel Resort’s Ovation Hall, the 35-year-old revealed his big news by singing, “Now you having my baby” to the roar from the crowd of 5,000, according to the AP.
Kardashian, 32, later confirmed the news in a blog post on her website.
“It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby,” she wrote. “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.”
It’s the first child for the reality star, who went public about her relationship with West last April, about six months after her split from NBA star Kris Humphries. The pair separated in October 2011, although their divorce is not yet finalized.
Her big baby news was followed by an outpouring of support on Twitter from her family members:
“Oh BABY BABY BABY!!” wrote Kim’s mom Kris Jenner.
“Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I can! Another angel to welcome to our family. Overwhelmed with excitement!” wrote sister Kourtney, who has a son Mason and a baby daughter Penelope.
“Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!!! LOVE is everything!!!!” wrote sister Khloe.
Congratulations to Kim! Think she’ll carry on the family tradition and give her baby a name that starts with “K?”
