"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is about to get a new cast member – although perhaps only in utero.
With Kanye West's surprise announcement that he and Kim Kardashian are expecting a baby, no doubt the new addition to the family will make its way onto the hit E! reality show. The network's president, Suzanne Kolb, told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement that the pregnancy will be a part of the series.
"Kim and Kanye are an incredibly dynamic couple, and their baby news is just so exciting," she said. "Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger. We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottle and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear."
West has already appeared in a few episodes of the series and according to THR the birth of eldest sister Kourtney Kardashian’s second child attracted 3.6 million viewers making that episode one of the top 25 broadcasts in E!'s history.
But don't schedule your DVRs for a Kimye baby birth special episode just yet. According to TMZ sources are saying the couple have decided not to allow their child to be filmed as part of the series.
