Kim Kardashian has revealed the sex of her and Kanye West's baby.

The reality TV star let slip that she is expecting a daughter to the 'New Slaves' rapper on last night's (June 2) season premiere of her family's show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, reports Billboard.

"I'm so excited we're having a girl," said the expectant mother. "Who doesn't want a girl? They're the best and I know that's really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl." Kardashian is due to give birth to the couple's first child during the summer.

Meanwhile, Kanye West recently revealed the cover of 'Yeezus', his new album due out on June 18. The low-key artwork (pictured right) shows just a clear CD case and a red sticker with the album's title scrawled on it.

Alongside Chief Keef, who confirmed his appearance earlier today (June 3), artists apparently set to appear on 'Yeezus' include Daft Punk, Frank Ocean, Hudson Mohawke, Skrillex, Tyler The Creator, RZA, James Blake, John Legend, Jay Electronica, Travi$ Scott and Ma$e.

West recently premiered new single 'New Slaves' by projecting the video on buildings across the world. The promo was screened in 10 cities including Sydney, London, Paris, Berlin and numerous locations in North America. The rapper previously played a brand new song called 'I Am A God' at the Met Gala in New York on May 6.
