Right in time to steal all the attention away from New Year's Eve, Kim Kardashian has made a big announcement: She's pregnant with Kanye West's baby!
After Kanye shouted the news from the stage during Sunday's Atlantic City concert, Kim confirmed it on her Celebuzz blog. "It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby," she wrote on Monday. "Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!!!"
And a happy new year it is -- especially for celebrity-watchers! We're can't wait to see how the world's most over-sharing, over-the-top couple navigates new parenthood. With both Kim and Kanye on a permanent mission to top everyone else, it should definitely be memorable. Here are our modest predictions for what the next few months will bring.
Baby bump reveal: Kim interrupts Daniel Day-Lewis' Oscar acceptance speech ("Imma let you finish, Daniel...") by descending from the ceiling on a cloud, wearing a gold-plated bikini, while a choir of angels shoots Kardashian Kollection fashions from T-shirt cannons. (Take that, Beyonce!)
Nude pregnancy portrait: Instead of doing a magazine cover like Demi Moore or a painting like Sienna Miller, Kanye commissions a series of sculptures of pregnant Kim (one for every month). To display them, the couple purchases an entire wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Maternity fashions: Not one to let pregnancy cramp her style, Kim continues to wear transparent skirts, cut-out bustiers, and all the other weird stuff she's been sporting lately. To compete, Kanye begins wearing his diamond-encrusted face mask whenever he leaves the house.
Choosing a baby name: Worried that her siblings will call dibs on all the good "K" names, Kim uses as many as she can fit on the kid's birth certificate. Following the birth of Karma Kaitlin Kalinda Kassidy Kalliope Kardashian-West, Khloe will be forced to name her future baby Klonopin.
The delivery: Since Kourtney already gave birth on television (twice!), Kim insists that E! go the extra mile for her. Her labor and delivery is broadcast live in a 12-hour special, during which she tweets with fans about what color nail polish she's wearing.
Baby's first song: Jay-Z included daughter Blue Ivy's first cries on his single "Glory," so naturally, Kanye has been teaching his unborn child the words to Public Enemy's "Bring the Noise." Their cover version, recorded in the delivery room, hits #1 on the iTunes charts.
First baby photos: Rather than selling their family photos to People, Kim and Kanye sell them to Avatar director James Cameron, who turns them into a 3-D movie. It is expected to outgross the new Star Wars.
Now that we've figured out how Kim can top every other pregnancy in celebrity history, only one question remains: What will Kate Middleton due to top Kim?
