It’s official: Kim Kardashian is pregnant. Kim and Kanye aka Kimye are expecting their first child.
The rapper and reality tv star announced Kim’s pregnancy after Kanye let the cat out of the bag at his Atlantic City concert. Kim Kardashian is about 12 weeks along, making her baby due just around when Kate Middleton is due to give birth to the next heir to the British throne. It’s a pretty strange coincidence, considering Kim’s own “Royal Wedding” after Kate & Will’s. It’s still uncertain if the couple will announce the baby’s sex or if they’ll give it a K initial, but one thing’s for sure – Kim will get one hell of a push present. Below, a few of our suggestions for the expectant mother.
This 13 carat diamond and platinum tennis bracelet is an opulent variation of the classic diamond bracelet. And the beautiful emerald cut diamonds will match the engagement ring Kim is so keen to hold onto (even if she’s way ready to let go of ex Kris Humphries).
Nothing about Kim is subtle. Same goes for Kanye. We’re sure that their child will inherit a penchant for making a statement, and this gorgeous Y. Adkin 22kt yellow gold and diamond cuff does the same.
This jaw dropping pair of platinum, Diamond and Onyx Vintage Drop Dangle Earrings has a tendency to turn heads – very fitting.
Given Kim’s obsession with Kate Middleton aka Duchess of Cambridge, this ring might be right up her alley!
This Rolex Datejust 16014 Diamond Pave Dial is for Kanye. You know he’ll want some credit for contributing to the paparazzi’s new golden child.
For weeks – if not months – press and pundits have been speculating on the likelihood of an engagement in Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s future. After Kanye treated Kim to an Italian getaway to celebrate her 32nd birthday many thought it was all but settled that he would propose.
Just this last week, on October 24, paparazzi spotted Kim at a Christian Louboutin boutique in Miami, Florida. The curvy celeb was sporting hip-hugging jeans, a black crocodile Hermes Birkin Bag, and a suspiciously large oval-shaped diamond ring on the pinky finger of her right hand.
Speculation that Kardashian was indeed engaged to hip-hop superstar Kanye West and has opted to wear the ring on her pinkie only out of deference to the fact that she’s still technically married to Kris Humphries has been more-or-less squashed by sources close to the starlet including Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner. Regarding whether or not the engagement rumor was true, Jenner said: “If it was, I would know about it.”
The Italy trip took the pair of lovers from Rome to Venice to Florence but the only special surprise was a custom birthday cake for Kim, who blogged “What a romantic weekend! One I’ll never forget.”
Still, one has to wonder if perhaps there will soon be another diamond ring in Kim’s future, perhaps in the next season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
