Twitterverse explodes: Kim Kardashian is pregnant!

[Update at 11:27 a.m.] Kim Kardashian formally announced the news herself in a post on her website Monday: "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"

The Twitterverse exploded early this morning after everyone’s favorite bad boy rapper Kanye West announced that his girlfriend – the famous-for-being-famous Kim Kardashian  - was pregnant.

A spokesman for Kardashian then confirmed the news to CNN, but provided no other detail other than to say that West announced it at a show Sunday in Atlantic City in New Jersey.

The two have been dating for about eight months and have denied pregnancy rumors in the past.

Kardashian, for her part, is still legally married to Kris Humphries  - although she filed for divorce from the NBA player 72 days after tying the knot in October 2011.

Soon after this morning's announcement, Kardashian family members took to Twitter to share the news with the world.

Khloe and Kourtney are Kardashian's sisters, and Kris Jenner is the new grandma-to-be.

Within minutes, the hashtag #Kimye took off on Twitter - as did the inevitable ribbing.

Some poked fun at West's healthy ego, saying Kanye will name his baby "Kanye" - or perhaps "Babye."

Others alluded to West's infamous interruption of singer Taylor Swift's MTV Video Music Awards speech in 2009 when he grabbed her microphone and let loose an outburst on behalf of singer Beyonce Knowles who had lost out in the Best Female Video category to Swift.

"Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time," West said that night.

Judging from the tweets this morning, that incident is still fresh on many minds.

    If fornication is not surprising to the west, then what is? Kris Humphries must decide finally if he is able to bear the humiliation and settle this insult immediately. Salams and a Happy New Year 2013

    haha if everyone would make money the way she does the world would go down..^^ no ofnefce, she is a cute girl. But the people who build our houses, bake our bread or work on developing renewable energies create more value for society and have less money than Kim. But whatever. Wish her all the best.

    This just shows how LOST everyone is in this society. People's lives revolve around gossip and garbage. I feel sorry for the kid that's coming into this world with parents like those.

      I agree. Why would anyone be proud and boast about being pregnant out of wedlock while being legally married to someone else? What a society we live in. What morals and values can this child learn from either of those parents.

    Why can't people stay out of other people's business. One thing is for sure they are not broke like most people talking about them. It's really bad when you sit back and hope and pray two people don't make it. Get a life and live it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
