The 32-year-old reality TV star Kim Kardashian  - whose boyfriend of eight months Kanye West announced they are expecting their first child on stage at his concert in Atlantic City on Sunday (30.12.12) - has admitted she is over the moon and can't wait to become a mother.
Writing on her official blog on New Year's Eve, the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star said: "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"
Kim and Kanye will make their first public appearance together in Las Vegas tonight since announcing their happy news, where she is hosting a New Year's Eve bash at 1 Oak nightclub in the Mirage hotel.
A source close to the brunette beauty previously revealed that she has inked a six-figure deal to appear at the event.
The insider also insisted that Kim would have no problem avoiding alcohol at the bash because she has never been a big drinker anyway. Tickets to the star-studded event reportedly cost $125 for standing room, while tables cost $3,000.
Kim is said to be exactly three months pregnant and has only just told her family. A source told HollywoodLife.com : "The family found out the good news on Christmas. Kim is due in late June, early July. She's three months along at this point."
Kim is still legally married to her estranged ex-husband basketball star Kris Humphries  despite filing for divorce more than one year ago after just 72 days of marriage.
Their divorce is expected to be finalised in early 2013.
