“It’s been so exciting,” she told PEOPLE of the whirlwind of emotions she’s felt since finding out she was pregnant. “We’re very, very happy.”
With just a hint of a baby bump showing under her form fitting black Julien Macdonald dress, the reality star rang in the new year in Las Vegas with the man she’s spent 2012 with: Beau and baby daddy Kanye West.
“I wish I could share a drink with you all, but I can’t for a little while,” she told the crowd at Mirage’s 1 OAK just before leading a countdown to 2013.
With the crowd cheering and confetti flying as the clock struck midnight, Kardashian stood on an elevated banquet adjacent to the deejay booth and passionately kissed West. And for the next 25 minutes, the deejay played nothing but West’s songs – much to the delight of his pregnant girlfriend, who smiled and sang along.
As the night continued, the duo rarely left each other’s side, with Kardashian dancing behind West while her party sipped Grey Goose cocktails. Kardashian stuck to water as the Grammy award-winning rapper occasionally rubbed her belly.
Her VIP table littered with party hats, streamers and black and gold balloons, Kardashian appeared happy throughout the night, kissing West and chatting with friends and family in attendance, including mom Kris Jenner, longtime friend Brittny Gastineau and Lance Bass.
Now that the new year has begun, Kardashian is working on being healthy for her unborn child.
“I’ve felt good. I’ve felt no morning sickness but it isn’t the easiest,” she said. “People always say pregnancy is so easy and fun. It’s definitely an adjustment; It’s learning about your body, but I’ve felt really good.”
While the announcement of Kardashian’s pregnancy came as a surprise to a lot of people, she doesn’t want to be surprised when it comes the sex of the baby.
She said, “Of course I do want to know!”
Well isn’t that nice! But of course, despite being months away from delivery there is already some talk about how much Kim and Kanye will be able to charge for the first photos of their lil seed, and people seem to think Kanye and Kim’s mom will be at odds over that matter.
The big announcement by Kanye West that Kim Kardashian is expecting his baby has sparked immediate speculation about how much exclusive newborn pictures could fetch. But sources think it will inevitably lead to a disagreement between West and the clan.
One told us, "Like Jay-Z and Beyoncé did with their little Blue Ivy [they put the pics on Tumblr], Kanye will want to post the pictures his way, probably publicly through Twitter — which will no doubt put him at odds with matriarch Kris Jenner, who'll want to make a deal with the highest bidder."
