Kim Kardashian and Kanye West feel "blessed and lucky" to be expecting their first child together.

The TV star posted a statement on her official blog after her rapper boyfriend announced the pregnancy at a concert in Atlantic City last night.

The couple had reportedly planned to keep the baby news under wraps until the svelte brunette started to show, but last week Kim and Kanye were snapped leaving the socialite's obstetrics and gynaecology doctor together, presumably receiving the news that it was safe to share their joy.

Today Kim expressed the couple's excitement in a heartfelt statement, but added that they are sad her boyfriend's late parents can't share their happiness.

"It's true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby. 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. Happy New Year!!! Xo," Kim wrote.

Kim is reportedly planning to appear at a Las Vegas nightclub tonight - despite the surprise baby news.

TMZ reports that the reality star won't let pregnancy slow her down and will ring in the New Year at 1 Oak on the Vegas strip.

According to sources, the paid public appearance has been scheduled for some time and the brunette beauty is determined to fulfil her professional obligations.

"We're told nothing's changed since Kanye West, unexpectedly, revealed their baby news," the website reports. "The reason? Sources tell us Kim will pull in six-figures for the appearance - plus, boozing is a non-issue for KK... who, we're told, has never been a big drinker anyway."

The insider added that Kim's protective boyfriend Kanye will be at her side for the lavish event.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
