When 2012 started, Kim Kardashian was surely not in the best place in her life. She was still fresh off of a split from her husband Kris Humphries, and thanks to an extremely messy divorce / annulment process (whatever you want to call it), the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star did not look to be getting into a relationship anytime soon. However, that changed when she first began to officially start dating her longtime friend Kanye West in April; and just a matter of eights months later, the couple is expecting their first child together.
Kanye was the first person to announce the news while at a concert in Atlantic City on Sunday, and as soon as the news was first revealed and was starting to spread around the internet, a whole chorus of Kardashians quickly took to social media to share all sorts of well-wishes. Check out some of their statements below:
Kourtney – “Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I can! Another angel to welcome to our family. Overwhelmed with excitement!”
Khloe – “Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!!! LOVE is everything!!!!”
Lamar Odom – “I’m excited for Kanye and my sister! There’s nothing like bringing life into this world! Let’s keep Gods blessings coming!”
Kris Jenner – “Oh BABY BABY BABY!!”
Kendall Jenner – “whos excited about the KIMYE babbyyy?! :D weeee”
This is Kim and Kanye’s first child together, and it will mark Kris Jenner’s third grandchild following Kourtney’s two kids Mason Dash and Penelope Scott Disick. The only strange irony to come out of all of this is that Khloe has been trying to have a child publicly longer than either of her two most-famous sisters, but she is now the only daughter of Kris and Robert Kardashian to have a child either born or on the way. (She also happens to be the only one that is married, to add another dose of irony to the mix.)
Was the pregnancy planned? What does Kim have to say? Hopefully, we’ll have answers to these questions soon enough. One thing is certain: she now has plenty to talk about when she appears on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” next week.
