Despite recent reports of fertility issues, Kim Kardashian and husband have excitedly announced that daughter North West is set to become a big sister as they are expecting baby number two!

Only a few days ago sources leaked that Kim Kardahsian has been under going IVF treatment since early this year in a  desperate bid to have another baby. In fact, she has been very public about her struggles and in a sneak peek for her show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim declared that she’s “over it” after yet another setback.

However, in true reality star style Kim dropped the news of her pregnancy at the end of Sunday’s mid-season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on E!.

In the teaser clip for the second part of the season (which will air later this year), Kim is seen being told she’s expecting again during a doctor’s appointment. The 34 year old then tells her sister Khloe: “I just got the blood test back, and I am pregnant!”

It is not known yet whether Kim and Kanye West’s first child, the adorable North West, who will turn two on June 1,5 will be a big sister to a little brother or sister.

During the tenth season of Keeping Up With The Kardashian, Kim was very honest about her efforts to have another baby, even giving perhaps too much information about her escapades with her rapper husband. At the time she said in an interview with E! News: “We are trying. We try every single day. You can’t try harder than we try. It’s getting exhausting. He always says, ‘Trying for baby No. 2 isn’t as fun as trying to baby No. 1.'”

Getting prepared for his fatherly roles Kanye West recently returned to Los Angeles Trade Technical College – the school where he taught after being ordered to serve community service following an incident with a photographer – to address the graduates.

“It’s a tough world out there,” he said. “You’re going to prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hatin’ employees… And usually, when you’re the absolute best, you get hated on the most… Never stop fighting. If it’s in your gut, if it’s in your soul, there’s nothing – no worldly possessions – that should come between you and your expression.” Spoken like a true Papa.

Congratulations Kimye!
