E! exec on how Kimye's baby will factor into show

"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.

    What a great role model and father kanye will be. I especially like his way of telling about Kim's pregnancy, “she's having my little ni•••r baby" is real nice. Not only will the kid learn that his mom is a money hungry attention seeking piece of trash, the same goes for the dad with allot of racism mixed in. Great combo

    This woman and her family makes me SICK! now she is bringing a child to this world ,not knowing the relation is not going to be there,she is a selfcentered "beatch" ,not morals at all ,this guy is with her for more exposure it makes me sick! some people should not BREED really! I was soo happy that this family was going off rorm the tabloids and TV rality shows ,but seems to me we all have to deal with them ,even if we don't watch their stupid shows,buy their tacky clothes and everything else ...we have to hear from them!

  11. this is so sad

    Kim Kardashian represents all that is wrong with marriage: She gets married for the publicity, tries to file a quickie divorce, then gets knocked up by her boyfriend while she's still trying to get the divorce. We all know this baby was not planned.

  12. Kanye is truly happy with Kim....

    this is not a phoney relationship. they truly love each other thats why this relationship (photoabove) is looking more and more positive to me. i love them and hope they have everything they want as a true honest couple. Kris H. is out she'll pay him off and get rid of him asap.....best of luck to both–and congrats on the new baby -

    Poor Kanye, dude has some major issues but he deserves and could do way better than this. He is a musical genius, even if you hate hip hop and him you should be able to admit that.

    I don't know why anyone cares. Lots of salt and pepper couples...lots of babies before marriage...it wouldn't even be a headline if it was anyone else. They obviously won't have a "typical" American marriage like most parents hope for their kids. The Hollywood gang are all in bed with each other anyhow...who cares?

      No this doesn't really bother anyone, but if you a white boy with a fine woman of color...(I know, in parts of the south you can be left alone unlike on the coasts).

    By E! exec, they mean Ryan Seacrest. He's the biggest reason television sucks these days. If it weren't for him and Andy Cohen on Bravo!, TV might actually be watchable. As for the train wreck waiting to happen with Kartrashian and her thug BF, well, I can only hope this kid doesn't turn out to be a serial killer.

    It must be hoped that this woman's selfishness, childishness and tendency to show her body to, well, anyone who will look, will be curbed by this event, although I doubt it. As for the poor child's father, he is one strange man, and it is to be hoped that he cleans up his foul mouth, if nothing else.
    However, don't count on it!

    It happens to so many couples nowadays. i feel the same...i hope these 2 will be mature enough to understand how important this child will need them as parents. Kimmie great news and congrats.

    I know women who have been pregnant before marriage....

    as long as they are mature and happy about it that is all that matters. Good luck to Kim and Kenye.

    Amazing this woman is like bad rotten food, once ingested your sick forever by the burbs. This TRAMP isn't even divorced, I mean really? Would it be so bad for the TV to give morals and values a try and stop parading this adutrist around as if her family is somthing to be looked up to. Common trash.
