If you were shocked, imagine how the families felt.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West gave their families the perfect Christmas gift, Celebuzz has learned. It was over the holidays that the soon-to-be parents revealed the amazing secret they’d been keeping.
“The family found out over Christmas,” Kanye’s cousin Tony Williams told Celebuzz, adding that the “Good Life” singer told his relatives in person.
“They told the two families at Christmas,” added Tony, who’s also been featured on a number of his cousin’s record-breaking albums. “It’s certainly happy news.”
In a blog post this week, Kim hinted at possible morning sickness, writing that she picked up an illness on Christmas Day and was forced to leave a Los Angeles Clippers game.
Always one to wow an audience, Kanye’s cousin was in the audience when the superstar made the exciting declaration during his concert at Revel in Atlantic City on Dec. 30.
He told the crowd to “stop the music and make noise for my baby mama.”
“I was seated directly behind Kim in the audience,” Williams said. “We were just all caught off guard he was going to announce it.
“Kim didn’t know he was going to tell everyone. No one had any idea he was going to announce it in that way. All his family and friends didn’t know what he was going to do.
“It was emotional from that moment on.”
The cousin also predicted the world-famous entertainer, who’s taken on the titles of Grammy Award-winner, film director and fashion designer, is ripe for his next role — as a dad.
“He seems to be ready to take this on like any other challenge,” Tony said. “He hasn’t ever been afraid of anything.
“After all, he’s 35 years old. You’ve got to do it at some time,” he added, with a laugh.
