The rapper nonchalantly dropped the bombshell news by asking the audience at his Atlantic City show to show some love to his "baby mama" Sunday night. The simple proclamation threw the Twitterverse in a frenzy and the news was soon confirmed by members of the Kardashian family: "Kimye" is indeed with child.
Beside the initial shock and awe of these two superstars breeding, fans began to wonder how the pregnancy will affect the reality starlet's burgeoning career?
Kim Kardashian burst on to the reality-TV scene in 2007 alongside her family in E!'s "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." The show was an instant hit and made Kim and her hourglass figure an overnight sensation.
Since then, she has accumulated significant clout with over 17 million Twitter followers (rumored to make $10K per product tweet), being named Forbes Magazine's second highest paid woman on television, and creating a cross platform brand (that includes a clothing line, cosmetics, perfume and endorsements) resulting in a $65 million fortune.
Despite the name and fame, Kim has always been vocal on her TV show about wanting a family and a house full of kids. She seemed to be on the path when she married basketball player Kris Humphries in August 2011 but their marriage dissolved a mere 72 days later. Their televised relationship revealed that, among other issues, Kim was not ready to leave her hectic schedule (which leaves a handful of days off a year) behind to "settle down."
So will being pregnant slow Kim Kardashian down? Not one bit.
She will be celebrating 2013 in her favorite hot spot: Las Vegas.
"Keeping Up With The Kardashians" was recently renewed for another three seasons and will now likely feature Kim's pregnancy as a prominent storyline, furthering driving attention to "Yahoo!'s most searched person of 2012.
She will also be seen acting in Tyler Perry's latest feature film, "Temptation" in which the curvy Kardashian will play a marriage counselor.
Her star power is guaranteed to rise, even if she chooses to sit on the sidelines, by mere association, at the least. She is having the baby of one of music's biggest superstars and will join the list of sexy A-list moms, including Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Megan Fox, to name a few.
