Kardashian and West: Expecting a Baby in 2013!
a blog by Claire, January 2, 2013
Leave it to a Kardashian to start off the New Year with a bang! Reality star Kim Kardashian, and rapper Kanye West, have announced they are expecting a baby together. The duo have been rumored to be planning for a baby with Kim’s recent egg freezing procedure and her dream of twins expressed in a recent edition of OK! magazine. We knew this was coming; we should have known it would be the first of the headlines for 2013!
The announcement came on Sunday as Kanye broadcasted news of the pregnancy on stage during his concert in Atlantic City. "God brought us a whole new plan, baby. 'Cause now you're having my baby”, he sang as he requested the crowd make some noise for his baby mama.
Kim later confirmed she is expecting via her blog: "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"
Kim is reportedly 12 weeks pregnant and, not surprisingly, the Kardashian family has had a tough time keeping this a secret. Sister Khloe Kardashian, who has been struggling to build her own family, gushed on Twitter that she is excited to finally be able to share the news.
While we are elated for West and Kardashian, we can’t help but feel bad for Khloe. Coming from the infertility perspective, it isn’t easy to be excited for others (even those closest to you) without feeling a bit jealous. Hoping 2013 is the year for you too, Khloe!
