Rapper Kanye West confirmed Sunday night to a crowd of over 5,000 people at Revel Resort's Ovation Hall in Atlantic City that he and Kim Kardashian are expecting their first baby.
"Stop the music for second, stop the music," Kanye said, before telling the crowd, "Can you make some noise for my baby mama right here." The crowd screamed, and so did social media.
As might be expected, naysayers, well-wishers and everyone in between had something to say.
Some pointed out that Kardashian is still married to NBA player Kris Humphries. Their divorce is not yet final.
Others posted exclusive pictures of the baby (see below). And some, well, Kim and Kanye supplied them with a lot of ammunition over the years.
Of course Kardashian's family was quick to announce their support.

Kim Kardashian was shocked that Kanye had revealed the news.
Sources close to Kim told TMZ that she had no idea that her baby daddy would be telling the world he'd gotten her knocked up. She wasn't planning on saying anything until she began showing.
Kim wasn't upset with Kanye for blurting out the news, though. According to TMZ, she was crying tears of joy and was particularly touched because he announced during one of her favorite songs, Lost in the World.
