Only a matter of hours after the news first broke (and consequently took over social media), the star of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” hit up one of her favorite venues in her official blog to speak out a little bit more about what has to be a joyous time in her life. She is only twelve weeks along and there is plenty more in the way of pregnancy discussion to be had, but for the time being she is really gushing nothing but positivity:
“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”
Both the deaths of Robert Kardashian and Donda West were heavily publicized years ago, and in some ways this has cast a shadow on the careers for both stars. However, at this very moment they are emerging from just about every moment of darkness or bad tabloid rumor to celebrate. What is especially magical for the two here? The fact that Kim managed to keep this pregnancy a secret despite some signs in retrospect of her expecting (including a visit to a certain kind of doctor), and no major tabloid outlet really caught on to it.
One final piece of information to share on the day: according to TMZ, the decision to make the announcement at Kanye’s Atlantic City concert on Sunday night was not planned, but he opted to go for it then since her family was there and the moment felt right. In addition to that, the pregnancy was also unplanned.
