Kim Kardashian announces pregnancy on her personal blog

After just a few months together in the Hollywood spotlight, reality star Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West have announced that they're expecting. The pregnancy will be the first for the reigning E! channel celebrity who has already seen her sister, Kourtney, have two children of her own. Kardashian made the announcement on her blog shortly after Christmas.

"It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby," she wrote. "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."

Kardashian has most recently been in the headlines for her divorce from basketball star Kris Humphries who she was married to for only 72 days. Although the star has not finalized her divorce from Humphries, she hasn't been shy about flaunting her new relationship with West.

If you've recently found out that you're expecting, you can take Kardashian's route and announce it over the World Wide Web if you want to stir up some excitement among your loved ones. Posting a Facebook status, tweeting or updating your own blog can be an effective way to get the news out to numerous people all at once.

Another tactic you can use is to host a family dinner and make your announcement to your loved ones in person. Together, you and your partner can rejoice in the news of your pregnancy with those who are closest to you.
