Following the midseason finale for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” a teaser aired that featured some highlights from what will be coming up the rest of the way this season. One of the biggest notes? The revelation that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their second child. This has come after a lengthy series of rumors about whether or not the reality star and the rapper would be expanding their family, but it is now official no matter how you want to look at it. What this news probably means is that there are going to be some larger ratings for the E! show moving forward, but also more than likely some other opportunities for the tabloids to pounce all over the pair.
What is the biggest victory for the show in the most part is managing to find a way to keep this a secret for so long. It would have been very easy for this sort of secret to leak, but there was probably only a very small list of people to actually learn the news.
Ultimately, expect the baby-to-be to be a huge storyline in all of the stories coming up, much in the same way that we’ve seen it in the past with Kourtney Kardashian, or when Kim was preparing to welcome North West into the world. (Yes, there will probably be all sorts of speculation coming in regards to the child’s name.)
