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.

    Still legally married and knocked up by another dude. Once upon a time, you weren't a chauvinist or seen as being puritanical for saying that kind of promiscuity was trifling. Greater than 50 percent of marriages end in divorce, fellas. What are YOUR chances of going down the right road and beating those odds?!

    She's married to another man....where have morals gone? Family values? Respect? I worry about the girls who look up to a person like her...it's disgusting...I hope parents use this as a teaching tool about what not to do and how not to act.

      Now that's uncalled for. No one should ever wish death on anyone no matter how trashy they are!

    Why are we even paying attention to this garbage of news? People get pregnant every day. What a waste of time. Kim's whole family is a sell out, they will do anything for money. Just Armenian trash!!! They have that in every culture.
