Kim Kardashian, who has never been one to shy from the limelight, surprised everyone with Kanye West’s impromptu announcement of her pregnancy at his concert in Atlantic City, NJ on Dec 30th. Amazingly Kim was able to go under the radar as tabloids speculated over Jessica Simpson’s quick second pregnancy and then focused on Kate Middleton’s acute morning sickness.
Kim said it was nice to be out of the media spotlight during the early stages of her pregnancy while the royal couple got all the attention.
"I’m obviously so happy for them, but if anything I loved the privacy, " the 32-year-old reality TV start said in an interview last Wednesday.
Of course that bit of privacy is over now that the "Big Reveal" was made by boyfriend Kanye West at his concert. Kardashan says that her motherly instincts have made her more guarded in her personal life now that the word is out.
"I think that definitely kicks in where you’re like, ‘Ok, I have to go in protect mode,’ an as ironic as it sounds, you live your life on a reality show but then when you grow up…certain things change your life that make you want to be more private and this I definitely one of them."
Kardashian and West went public with their relationship in March. Kardashian married NBA player Kris Humphries in August 2011 and their divorce is not finalized.
Kardashian is due in July.
A new season of her reality show with her sister Kourtney, "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami," premieres Sunday on E! (9 p.m. EST).
