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.

      Once he's "done" with her, he'll be draggin' her in by the hair for a DNA test because it could be one's baby, even the gardener's. Ho, ho, ho.

    Kanye is already naming HIS baby. No mention of discussing names with KIM. There will be no marriage. Poor baby.

    I just hope she takes a step back & maybe a clue from her sisters, @least they keep their private life & the kids out of their famous-for-being-famous limlight for the most part! BUT, we are talking about 2 of the most self-absorbed people in Hollywood!? Poor kid, & she's still MARRIED. Good Example, huh?!?!?
