Rapper makes the announcement live onstage in Atlantic City last night (December 30)

Kanye West last night (December 30) announced that his girlfriend Kim Kardashian is pregnant.

The rapper told the 5,000 strong crowd at the Ovation Hall at the Revel Resort in Atlantic City by stopping the music and saying: “make some noise for my baby mama right there.” You can watch a video of the onstage announcement above.

West then began singing “now you having my baby” at his girlfriend Kim Kardashian who was in attendance at the gig which was the third, and final, night of his residency at the casino resort. West and Kardashian have been together for six months.


The news that his girlfriend is pregnant with his first child overshadows the rapper’s bizarre onstage rant during the second night of his three-day residency in Atlantic City on Saturday (December 29).

According to, after performing his ‘Cruel Summer’ single ‘Clique’, West went on a rant about the media, the critics on his women’s fashion line, skinny jeans and the Grammys.

Despite being nominated for six Grammy awards, Kanye West announced during his speech that he won’t be attending the 2013 ceremony. The rapper cited once losing to Maroon 5 for ‘Best New Artist’ and his ‘Watch The Throne’ and ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ albums being overlooked for ‘Album Of The Year’ as reasons behind his boycott.
