Rapper Kanye West announced that he and girlfriend Kim Kardashian are expecting their first child this past weekend in front of a crowd of 5,000 at West’s concert in Atlantic City.
Now, West and Kardashian are set to have the pregnancy and birth of the couple’s firstborn all recorded on the upcoming season of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami on E!, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“Kim and Kanye are an incredibly dynamic couple, and their baby news is just so exciting,” E! president Suzanne Kolb told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.
“Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger. We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottle and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear.”
A boost in ratings is expected in the latest season of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami and a source tells the Hollywood Reporter the network ”will continue to cover all aspects of Kim’s life as it always has,” implying the pregnancy.
E! has been carrying the Kardashian brand for a few years now. Keeping Up With the Kardashians just finished its seventh season and Kourtney & Kim Take Miami and Kloe & Lamar both have two seasons behind them.
Kim is still legally married to Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries, but filed for divorce 72 days after their marriage in August 2011. Kim and Kanye have been dating since April 2012.
