Rapper extraordinaire Kanye West said a mouth full during last night’s NYE concert when he revealed that his other half Kim Kardashian was pregnant with his child.

According to THR, West made the announcement from the Revel Resort and Casino stage saying, “Stop the music and make noise for my baby mama.”   He has been performing there all weekend and causing quite a stir with his outrageous costumes, bejeweled masks and rants about the Grammy Awards. You know? Typical Kanye West shenanigans!

Kardashian, who was very shocked at West’s announcement, followed up with a statement earlier this morning on her website confirming the news:

 “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.”

Although Kim is technically still married to NBA player Kris Humphries—yeah remember him—Kimye is obviously planning to move forward with their new lives and new baby.  But just for the record, a divorce hearing is scheduled for February 15, 2013.

In the meantime, check out the video below of Kanye spilling the beans:

Congrats to the happy couple!  2013 is already turning out to be the year of love and babies!
