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.

    Say what you want about he Karadshians, they may be a bit trashy but they DO know how to makes millions.
    Kim received tens of millions on an video with her and a rapper banging her back door open, she make upwards pf 50 million on her wedding.
    Just imagine how much she will get for the right to sell the "first" baby pictures.

      Armenians are definitely Caucasian, there's no doubt about that. I think the racist is you for implying she's not Caucasian.

    How they and their adoring fans act is what being free is all about, that they can make millions and get free publicity from CNN and all media that make money as well while doing so, now that is what its all about.
    That millions of people act just the same, or just wish they could, while not getting rich and act for free, now that is something to worry and wonder about.

    Does anyone else feel sorry for this baby? I bet she got knocked up for the publicity. I'm sorry, but babies aren't accessories. They're supposed to be a blessing.

    If you are one of those people that defends the Kartrashians, your best bet would be to just read the article and stay away from the comment section. There are more of us than there are of you. Besides, I don't know why you K-fanatics defend them so much, it's not like they are gonna call you and thank you. Idiots...
