Kim Kardashian may still be married to NBA baller Kris Humphries -- their divorce is pending -- but that didn't stop hip-hop icon Kanye West from announcing to a New Jersey crowd of 5,000 that he's joining reality TV's most eccentric family.

Rapper Kanye West confirmed Sunday night to crowd of over 5,000 people at Revel Resort's Ovation Hall in Atlantic City that he and Kim Kardashian are expecting their first baby. "Stop the music for second, stop the music," Kanye said, before telling the crowd, "Can you make some noise for my baby mama right here." The crowd screamed, and so did social media.

As might be expected, naysayers, well-wishers and everyone in between had something to say. Some pointed out that Kardashian is still married to NBA player Kris Humphries (their divorce is not yet final). Others posted exclusive pictures of the baby (see below). And some, well, Kim and Kanye supplied them with a lot of ammunition over the years.

Of course Kardashian's family was quick to announce their support.

"@reallamarodom: I'm excited for Kanye and my sister! There's nothing like bringing life into this world! Let's keep Gods blessings coming!"
