(NECN/AP) - Here are some of the morning's top entertainment headlines:

- Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announce they are expecting first child


Rapper Kanye West announced at a concert Sunday night that his girlfriend is pregnant. Kim Kardashian was in the crowd at Revel Resort's Ovation Hall with her mother, Kris Jenner, and West's mentor and best friend, Jay-Z. West told the crowd of more than 5,000 in song form: "Now you having my baby."
 
The crowd roared. And so did people on the Internet.
 
The news instantly went viral on Twitter and Facebook, with thousands posting and commenting on the expecting couple.
 
Most of the Kardashian clan also tweeted about the news, including Kim's sisters. Kourtney Kardashian wrote: "Another angel to welcome to our family. Overwhelmed with excitement!"
 
West, 35, also told concertgoers to congratulate his "baby mom" and that this was the "most amazing thing."
 
Representatives for West and Kardashian, 32, didn't immediately respond to emails about the pregnancy.
 
The rapper and reality TV star went public in March.
 
Kardashian married NBA player Kris Humphries in August 2011 and their divorce is not finalized.
 
- Jessica Simpson shows off baby bump


For the first time since announcing she is expecting her second child, Singer Jessica Simpson has released a photo of her "baby bump."

Simpson tweeted a photo while vacationing over the Christmas holiday in Hawaii.

This photo followed up a tweet Simpson sent on Christmas, finally confirming that she was expecting, which featured a photo of her daughter Maxwell near the words "Big Sis" written in the sand.
