New York-based rapper Mr. Papers, whom Kim was first linked to back in June 2012, wrote on Instagram Thursday, just hours after Kim's expectant status made headlines, "I heard everybody looking for me ?????????????????"
He's also been retweeting up a storm, the posts including various congratulatory tweets and stories about him coming forward as Kim's baby daddy. He also just tweeted his email address (in case people couldn't see it right there in his Twitter bio), guessing rightly that people are probably going to have questions for him.
And he goes by "Daddy" on Twitter. Coincidence, or is that a new change?
Photographers got their first glimpse at Kim's baby bump just yesterday at New York Fashion Week, and she told E! News at the MAC Cosmetics and The Blonds afterparty, "My little boo boo is coming! My little baby boo, my sunshine!"
She tweeted back in 2012 that she and Papers had broken up, thanking her fans for all their love and support and writing, "As of 2night me & Papers are officially over. No malice or bad blood. I'll see U guys soon. #12DaysofXmas." To which he replied, "@LilKim don't be so mad you fighting with ya self... Get ya facts str8 lol."
But the couple obviously reconciled at some point: He collaborated on her remix of Rihanna's "Pour It Up" and starred with her in the music video that came out last March, and he once again was being referred to as her boyfriend.
Among the onslaught of retweets, Papers also offered some original content: "'@Emillio_Blanco: @MR_Papers Congratz on the royal baby!' / royal is a good name for the lil homie."
To another congratulatory message, he replied, simply, "thank u." And to one hater, who wrote that Papers would never stack up to one of Kim's exes, the late Notorious B.I.G.," the rapper just wrote, "lol damnn lol."
So either he's creating quite the ruse, or this guy's about to be a father.
Congrats to the parents-to-be!
