According to E! News, West, 35, announced the news from the stage at a concert in Atlantic City on Sunday.

Kardashian, 32, who rose to fame five years ago for her appearances in reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, was the most-searched person on the Yahoo! website in 2012.

She married basketball player Kris Humphries in August 2011, in a lavish, made-for-TV wedding, but the couple divorced just 72 days later.
