Kim and Kanye have been dating since April.
One person who hasn't yet tweeted anything about Kimye's big baby announcement... Kim's husband, basketball player Kris Humphries. The two were famously married last year in a lavish ceremony that was broadcast on the E! Network. Seventy-two days later, the couple called it quits -- but the divorce is not yet final.
