During the show, Kanye - who has been dating Kim since April 2012 - told the audience to "stop the music and make noise for my baby mama."

While Kim - who is believed to be around 12 weeks pregnant - hasn't spoken about her pregnancy, her family are delighted by the news.

And Kim's mother and manager Kris Jenner is delighted.

She tweeted: "Im a happy girl !!!!!!!!! Wowza! (sic)"

Kim, 32, and 35-year-old Kanye spent the festive period together and were seen with the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star's family watching her brother-in-law Lamar Odom playing basketball for the Los Angeles Clippers on Christmas Day (25.12.12).

However, they left at half time with Kim later tweeting she felt "unwell".
