Kanye West Godfather to Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Baby?

Kanye West thrilled to be Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby godfather.

Rapper/producer Kanye West has told friends how excited he is about Beyonce and Jay-Z’s upcoming baby.

He is confident the power couple will pick him to be a godfather to their baby, to take care of its spiritual upbringing.

“Kanye West is as excited about the baby as Beyonce and Jay-Z. He’s been saying he’s going to be godfather and is absolutely thrilled. It will be a huge honour for him.”- a source told The Sun newspaper.

As we all know Beyonce announced she was pregnant at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Sunday (28.08.11), by posing for photographs, showing off her baby bump.

Jay-Z and godfather-to-be Kanye West performed their new single ‘Otis‘ together at the awards, then Beyonce also sang, rubbing her baby bump at the end of her performance.

Beyonce and Jay-Z married in 2008 and the baby will be a first child for them both.
