Black liberals fell in love with Kanye West after he announced on air in 2005 that former President George W. Bush "doesn't care about black people", essentially blaming Bush, and only Bush, for the U.S. response to Hurricane Katrina, while at the same time opening the door to Bush's successor, Barack Obama. It was a brilliant move by West, a statement based on total ignorance broadcast to millions of naive souls looking for any reason to further hate Bush and get a Democrat POTUS into the White House. Since then the rapper and producer has gone on to make millions via feel-good music, while furthering his brand and exposure with high-profile relationships with noted gold-digger Amber Rose and still-married, morally bankrupt socialite Kim Kardashian, with whom he has just announced expecting a baby with. How this news effects West's relationship with black liberals is probably a non-factor considering Obama's successful re-election bid. But no doubt, those of you considering having kids with married women will be comforted by West's "good news":
Kim Kardashian is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Kanye West, the reality star's spokesman confirmed.
The happy news was first revealed by Kanye onstage during his concert in Atlantic City on Sunday night as Kim watched from the audience.
The rapper said 'stop the music', then announced 'make noise for my baby mama right here,' with a wide smile. Kanye's announcement prompted a flurry of excited tweets from the audience.
Kim, who was sat in the audience during the show, is said to have not known that her man would reveal their pregnancy and was in shock like many of the rappers fans.
She confirmed the news in a message to fans titled 'New Year, New Beginnings' on Monday.
She wrote: 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
The two have been dating for eight months. They have previously denied pregnancy rumours.
Kim is thought to be around the 12-week mark.
Kim, 32, and Kanye, 35, were last seen together on Christmas Day when they attended a basketball game to watch Kim's brother-in-law Lamar Odom play with his new team The Clippers.
Kanye was seen carefully attending to his girlfriend and holding her hand as they sat side by side in the front row. They left at half time, with Kim later tweeting that she felt 'unwell'.
'In bed with the flu all day. Praying this goes away fast!' the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wrote.
Kim won't be letting her pregnancy get in the way of her work - she is hosting a party in Las Vegas for New Year's Eve at the 1 Oak nightclub.
Kim will earn a six-figure sum for the appearance with tickets costing $125 for entry into the VIP area and $3,000 for a table, according to TMZ.
Of course, Kim is still married to her estranged second husband Kris Humphries. The pair's divorce has been prolonged as the basketball star has insisted on a court case, claiming the marriage should be annulled as it was 'fraud'.
After the news of Kim's pregnancy broke late on Sunday her excited family took to Twitter.
