Kanye West, Kim Kardashian expecting baby-reports

Dec 31 (Reuters) - U.S. rapper Kanye West and reality TV

star Kim Kardashian are expecting their first child, celebrity

media outlets reported on Monday.

Fans and family took to Twitter to congratulate the

celebrity power couple.

"Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I

can!" wrote Kardashian's sister Kourtney. "Another angel to

welcome to our family. Overwhelmed with excitement!"

According to E! News, West, 35, announced the news from the

stage at a concert in Atlantic City on Sunday.

Kardashian, 32, who rose to fame five years ago for her

appearances in reality TV show "Keeping Up with the

Kardashians", was the most-searched person on the Yahoo! website

in 2012.

She married basketball player Kris Humphries in August,

2011, in a lavish, made-for-TV wedding, but the couple divorced

just 72 days later.
