How will Kim and Kanye react to Beyonce baby news?

Not only did Beyonce share her joyous pregnancy news -- she also added a baby bump photo of herself proudly sporting her bulging belly while only wearing her bra, panties, and a veil, glowing with sheer maternal happiness. Beyonce baby speculation began building at a furious pace last week after the singer was photographed during a promo video for her Ivy Park clothing line, with fans noticing a belly bulge that she was allegedly attempting to conceal.

However, once Beyonce belly talk began spreading, the video clip magically vanished and her rep began ignoring multiple requests for comment on the couple's family news. Obviously, the jig was up, and Beyonce and Jay-Z decided it was time to come clean with the news. TMZ reports that Bey is estimated to be around 4-5 months along, so it was getting almost impossible to conceal the news much longer, though the couple had done a pretty good job thus far.

The Carters, already seasoned parents to their five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, are certainly going to have their hands full in the next few months. On another note, it will also be interesting to see how Beyonce and Jay-Z's frenemies (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West) react to the news. Not to be outdone by Bey and Jay, will the super competitive Kimye be the next to make a big celebrity baby announcement? Will it be boys, girls, or one of each for the Carters? Make your predictions!
