Kim Kardashian is pregnant with her second child

Kim Kardashian may have seemed at her wit's end trying to get pregnant with a sibling for 23-month-old North West, but she and husband Kanye West are officially expecting their second child. The elated reality star spilled on the exciting news in the latest issue of Glamour, saying 'we are so beyond excited.'

News of the pregnancy first broke during the May 31 supertease for Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which shows the 34-year-old finding out the happy news and sharing it with little-sister Khloe Kardashian. An elated Kim, who has made no secret of her desire to have another baby, says, "I just got the blood test back, and I am pregnant!" This follows a season where Kim's fertility concerns and IVF treatments were a central storyline, from doctors appointments to baby-making rendezvous with Kanye.

Momager Kris Jennercongratulated her daughter on the news via Instagram, telling her: "I can't wait to meet your little love bug" and adding the hashtag #youaresobeautifulpregnant.

The "little love bug" will be a brother or sister for Kim and Kanye's daughter North West, who turns two on June 15. Not long after the baby news came to light, 'South West' began trending on Twitter – a sign that fans are hoping the Kardashian-Wests keep up the geographical theme.

The parents may want to consult Anna Wintour again as they settled on the unusual name North after the powerful fashion editor gave her approval.

Just last week, the power couple celebrated their wedding anniversary, with Kim posting throwback photos of the lavish week of festivities in Paris and Florence. The rap star also made a public declaration of love for his wife. "Kim, I’m so happy to be married to the girl of my dreams… I love you and Nori so much!!! I would find you in any lifetime," he wrote on Twitter.

Nori and cousin Penelope Disick are ballet buddies.

The proud parents regularly share photos of their adorable daughter, who accompanies them everywhere, from the front row at Paris Fashion Week to the pages of magazine spreads - save for Kim's most recent bombshell shoot with Vogue Brasil.

North, who spends ample girl time with her two-year-old first cousin, Penelope Disick, will surely be excited to take on the role of big sister. The cute cousins were recently snapped after ballet class, where North rocked a custom baby Balmain jacket. Of course, if Kim and Kanye's second is a boy one thing is for sure - he's destined to be one stylish tot.

Congratulations to the Wests!
