Because nobody gets more tabloid attention than a pregnant celebrity (except maybe a celebrity who just lost a lot of weight), Kim Kardashian went and got knocked up.
The reality TV empress and sex tape star will welcome noted “jerk” Kanye West’s child into the world in about six months. Because that’s just what the overpopulated world needs now: mini Kims and Kanyes running around.
West announced the pregnancy at a concert in Atlantic City, N.J. Sunday night in the most Kanye West way possible: In the middle of his song “Heard Em’ Say,” West stopped and said, “Stop the music and make noise for my baby mama,” according to Us Weekly.
Kardashian confirmed the news on her website Monday morning, “It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby.”
Kardashian is still legally married to NBA player Kris Humphries, who she filed for divorce from in October 2011.
The two are embroiled in a messy legal battle over the divorce, as Kardashian wants a divorce, while and Humphries wants an annulment citing “fraud” as the main reason for the split after only 72 days of marriage. Humphries claims that the marriage was all a sham and money-making scheme for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” while Kim insists it was bad timing.
If you were a betting man or woman, now would be the time to start a Celebrity Baby Pool to see who gives birth first: Kim, Jessica Simpson or Kate Middleton. (Not trying to tell you what to do here or anything, but our money is on Simpson in late May. Just sayin’.)
