Kim Kardashian Pregnant -- Will Baby Bump Translate to Ratings Bump? People, THR, Celebuzz

Kim Kardashian is expecting a baby with her boyfriend, Kanye West, reports People.com. West announced the news at a concert Sunday night, and Kardashian confirmed the news in a blog post.

Kardashian wrote: "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."

The baby will appear on E!, with network President Suzanne Kolb telling The Hollywood Reporter that the cable channel is looking "forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottle and, without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear."

It's likely that the latest season of "Kourtney & Kim Take Miami," which premieres Jan. 20, will see a ratings bump, the story notes.

THR adds: "The season seven finale of the mothership series 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' on Nov. 16 saw the birth of Kourtney Kardashian’s second child with Scott Disick and earned 3.6 million viewers, making it one of the top 25 broadcasts in network history."

Kim Kardashian's divorce from Kris Humphries is still pending, People.com notes. She went public with her relationship with West about six months after she filed for divorce from Humphries.
