The news of Kim Kardashian's pregnancy may have been a surprise to many -- but apparently it was also a surprise to Kim. Well, not the pregnancy exactly. But the announcement of it. Reportedly, Kim had zero idea that Kanye was going to spill the beans in front of thousands of people during his concert while he was in the midst of singing one of his favorite songs, "Lost the World." Lost his mind, more like! Okay, that's a little harsh, but seriously, should a daddy ever surprise a new mommy with a birth announcement that she wasn't on board with?
Sources say that he wanted to announce it at his concert because several of his relatives were in the house. I understand the excitement of wanting to tell the world that your girlfriend is pregnant, and since Kim's family already knew, perhaps he thought he was doing no harm. But there are other reasons to keep a pregnancy hush hush.
For one, Kim is in her twelfth week or so and reportedly wanted to wait until she "started showing." Plus, any announcement of a pregnancy of Kardashian proportions guarantees a crap storm of paparazzi following her every move and tons of headlines speculating on everything from the baby's name to what Kim is eating and whether or not she should be eating it. Perhaps Kim would have liked a little more time to not have to deal with all of that stuff.
Nevertheless, sources say Kim wasn't upset with the surprise blab, and in fact was crying "tears of joy." Plus, this is the guy who rushed on stage and interrupted Taylor Swift during her VMA speech. Surely Kim must know that verbal restraint isn't one of Kanye's finest qualities.
And, let's face it, Kim loves publicity. She's built her entire life around it. If she's upset about anything, it's probably that the announcement came at his show instead of at her paid New Year's Eve gig in Las Vegas. Then again, if anyone can forgive a signficant other for being an fame addict, it should be Kim.
That said, these two do seem genuinely in love. Remember when we all doubted it?! They must be over the moon and I'm not going to begrudge them their baby happiness. I still think it was a tacky move though.
Do you think dad's have a right to decide when to announce?
