Neonatal yoga? What to Expect When You're Expecting
? Nesting? Please. If you are Kim Kardashian
, pregnancy wears furs and stilettos-and works it. After the reality star's boyfriend, Kanye West
, announced she was his "baby mama" onstage in Atlantic City on Dec. 30-and Twitter and tabloids exploded in a blinding supernova-the glitzy pair hit Las Vegas, to host a New Year's Eve bash at the nightclub 1 OAK. "I wish I could share a drink with you all, but I can't for a little while," she told revelers from her perch in a deejay booth. Then it was back to Los Angeles, where the two chilled out with a little frozen yogurt. "They seemed mellow," says an onlooker. "Kim was glowing."
A source says the new addition was a "pleasant surprise" for Kardashian, who has spent a year locked in one mother of a divorce from her husband of 72 days, Brooklyn Nets player Kris Humphries, 27. The curvy tycoon, 32, and boyfriend of nine months West, 35, had "wanted children but were going to wait a year or two," says the source. Then Kardashian received news last fall from the fertility specialist she had been seeing with sister Khloe (who has been public about her own difficulty conceiving). "The doctor told her she should freeze her eggs," says the source, "and that it would be a struggle to get pregnant."
So they moved their timetable up to December, when she returned from filming her E! reality show Kourtney & Kim Take Miami
. But by then, Kardashian happily discovered, she was already pregnant. As they prepare for the baby's July arrival, the couple have purchased an $11 million mansion in Bel-Air but are in no rush to marry, especially given Kardashian's divorce mishegoss. Looking glam and feeling good (no morning sickness yet), Kardashian, says the pal, "is just relaxing and taking it all in."
