Kanye West Expecting Second Child as Kim Kardashian Announces Pregnancy
For the past two years, North West, the daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West, has been the royal baby of hip-hop, but now it seems she better watch the throne: During a teaser for the next season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that aired last night (May 31), Kardashian revealed that she is pregnant with her second child. Watch the video, which has probably already started playing automatically (sorry!), below:
The relevant part of the clip shows Kardashian in a doctor's office looking at an ultrasound, then saying a blood test confirms that she is pregnant. There's no word yet on either Kanye's reaction to first hearing the news or to the publication of the news, but if his relationship with North West is any indication, the eager father is probably beside himself.
Kanye's second child isn't his only upcoming project the world can't wait to hear more about: His next album, SWISH, is still shrouded in all kinds of mystery. Arcade Fire's Win Butler debuted a snippet of a track that may or may not be from the album a few nights ago, and the fact that the video was removed from YouTube “due to a copyright claim by UMG” makes it more likely that the song is official in some capacity.
