Kim Kardashian was just as surprised as the rest of the world when rapper Kanye West publicly announcement that they are expecting a baby, TMZ reports.

On Sunday night at Atlantic City's Revel Resort Ovation Hall, West announced that Kardashian is pregnant to a packed crowd of more than 5,000 fans. His reality-star girlfriend was also in the audience.

The rapper paused in the middle of his set to reveal the big news. "Stop the music for a second. Stop the music," he said. "Can we make some noise for my baby mama right quick?" The crowd erupted in wild cheers, and the news quickly went viral.

He asked concertgoers to congratulate his baby mama, according to the Associated Press, adding that this was "most amazing thing.”

Kardashian reportedly had "no idea" West would make the pregnancy announcement on stage Sunday, according to TMZ.

She and the 35-year-old "Clique" rapper had not discussed announcing the news and were reportedly going to wait until she started showing, TMZ notes. Kardashian's best friend and her mom, as well as several members of West's family were also at the show.

After West revealed the news, the Kardashian clan also confirmed the reality star is expecting her first child with the Chicago-born rapper, whom she has been dating since the spring. "Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!!! LOVE is everything!!!!" tweeted Khloe Kardashian.
