For their first outing since announcing they’re expecting a baby, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian hit the New Year’s Eve countdown held at 1 Oak nightclub in Las Vegas. The couple looked especially close as they posed for pictures; Ye wore a simple black suit, and Kim donned a sexy black leather and lace dress.
Ye announced Kim’s pregnancy on stage at his concert at the Revel Resort in Atlantic City the night before, telling the crowd to “make some noise for my baby mama right quick.”
Soon after the announcement news hit Twitter, Kim’s family tweeted out their excitement. “Im a happy girl !!!!!!!!! Wowza!” tweeted Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner. “Oh BABY BABY BABY!!”
“KIMYE!!!!!” tweeted sister Khloe. “Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!!! LOVE is everything!!!!”
“Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I can!” added Kourtney. “Another angel to welcome to our family. Overwhelmed with excitement!”
An elated Kim released a statement, saying, “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.”
