And the Oscar for year-ending baby news goes to Kim Kardashian. The reality fashion powerhouse has confirmed that she"s pregnant.
Kardashian, 32, took to her official site to post the following on New Year"s Eve: "It"s true!! Kanye (West) 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"
She has spoken for years in interviews of her wish to be a mom. In September she said on ABC"sThe View: "Kids is definitely something I want, I think I wanted that before."
And the news comes as Kardashian is still battling to exit her brief marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries. She and Humphries were famously married for 72 days, following a lavish televised gala, and are now fighting to settle their divorce. They are due back in court mid-February to set a trial date to either dissolve or annul the marriage.
That didn"t stop Kardashian from stepping out with her long-time friend West, 35. They took their romance public in March.
And on Sunday night, the rapper announced at a concert that his girlfriend is with child. He told the crowd of more than 5,000 at Revel Resort"s Ovation Hall in song form: "Now you having my baby." Kardashian was in the audience and according to E!, which airs her family reality show, she"s about 12 weeks along.
