Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are pregnant with their second child

Listen up, people! South West is *officially* on the way...

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West haven't shied away from telling the world about their desire to add to their brood and, after countless IVF struggles, the pair have announced that they are indeed expecting their second child. Congrats!

Now, considering we all know how actively snap-happy 34-year-old Kim is on her Instagram feed, it wouldn't come as a surprise if she chose to reveal the news that she's expecting with a pic of her scan to her 34.7 million followers on the social media platform. However, she chose to give her special announcement on a way more global scale.

Kim decided the perfect time to tell the world her exciting news was during the season finale of her hit TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which also stars her famous siblings, momager Kris Jenner and step-father Bruce. And who was the lucky one to find our first? Her younger sister Khloe.

Clearly over the moon with her pregnancy, Kim told her stunned sister Khloe: 'I just got the blood test back, and I am pregnant!' in the show's final moments. Well it beats having to make a million or so phone calls, huh? 

Sadly, this is all the deets we have for you at the moment. We don't know how far along Kim is or when she and Kanye are expecting their new arrival - but as soon as we know, you'll know.

One thing that's for certain, we're sure there's a little girl who's now super-excited at the thought of having a younger brother or sister to cause havoc and, you know, share her makeup brushes and faux fur coat collection with; the couples first child North West. And yes, a real-life South West could actually be on the cards. 

Also overjoyed at the news is Kim's mum Kris who too Twitter to share her elation;

And considering that her tweet only went out two hours ago and it's already had hundreds or retweets and thousands of favourites, it's fair to say people are pretty happy about it. CALM DOWN INTERNET.

The rest of the Kardashian Klan are still to comment on Kim's news but we're sure their silence won't last long...

In the meantime, major congratulations to Kim, Kanye, North and the whole family on your soon-to-be new addition.
