Report: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting a boy

Kanye is getting a mini-ye!

Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West's second child will be a boy, a little brother for 2-year-old North, Us Weekly reports.

Word on the street is that West, 38, is very pleased to be getting a male "heir."

"Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete he wanted a little boy, an heir," a source close to West told the magazine. "He's overjoyed!"

Fans on baby watch might have been tipped off to the sex when the couple was spotted picking out boys' baby clothes at boutique Trico Field in New York on June 1.

But Kardashian is still staying cagey about the baby's sex, even while clearing up other rumors in a tweet she floated on Wednesday morning: "so many rumors...we are not having twins, yes I am carrying my own baby lol & we have not told anyone the sex of our baby yet!"

The news follows a year of fertility struggles for the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star, who chronicled her in-vitro fertilization and psychic consultations on the show.

"The waiting and waiting has been a roller coaster," Kardashian, 34, recently told Glamour.

The waiting ended for everyone on May 31 when she exclaimed in a teaser for "KUWTK" that she "just got the blood test back and I'm pregnant!"

The couple married last May in Florence, Italy.
