Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were pictured for the first time since West announced Kardashian’s pregnancy.
(View pictures here.)
Looking thrilled, the couple was seen at LAX airport alongside Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner. Wearing dark shades and an all-black outfit with a belt around her midriff, Kardashian did not look three months pregnant.
In some pictures, West is seen with his arm around Kardashian and in other they are holding hands and looking quite smitten.
While West was performing at Revel in Atlantic City Sunday night, he stopped in the middle of rapping to say “make noise for my baby mama right here,” causing the 5,000 audience members to shout and applaud.
Though she is pregnant, Kardashian is showing no signs of slowing down just yet, as she is expected to host a New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas. According to the DailyMail, she is expected to make $300,000 for her appearance.
On her blog on Monday, Kardashian confirmed West’s pregnancy announcement in a post titled 'New Year, New Beginnings'.
“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”
West lost his mother Donda West in 2007 at the age of 58 after complications from plastic surgery, while Kardashian’s father Robert Kardashian passed away in 2003 at the age of 59 after losing his battle with esophageal cancer.
This will be the couple’s first child together. They have been dating since April.
