In news that's sure to kill the brain cells of anyone within shouting distance of the swank California suburb of Bel Air, the world's humblest couple, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, have a bought an $11 million mansion for their first home together, according to TMZ.
The couple, which is expecting their first child together in June, are now the owners of a 10,000-square-foot home sitting in a private gated community in the exclusive California zip code.
When the couple moves into the neighborhood they'll join other American treasures like founder of the "Girls Gone Wild" entertainment franchise Joe Francis, actress Jennifer Aniston, and Los Angeles Clippers basketball player Chris Paul.

According to TMZ, the couple has already begun gutting the interior of the home and is planning to add another 4,000-square-feet to complete their vision. An unnamed source who spoke to TMZ said the mansion will be "an Italian-style villa, with a gym, movie theater, full hair and make-up salon, bowling alley, basketball court, and indoor and outdoor pool," and a nursery, too, of course, the source added.
West and Kardashian surprised the world recently when they reportedly turned down a $3 million offer for the first photos of their child. An inside source close to Kardashian told TMZ that the model and rapper have already had more lucrative offers for the pictures than they know what do with, and were offered $3 million from one publication outside the U.S.
Kardashian was also recently asked to host a pregnancy website, MyPregnancy.com, for $250,000, by David Dginguerian, an Armenian filmmaker. It's unclear whether or not Kardashian will accept the deal as she recently revealed the couple plans to share the pregnancy with their adjustment to being parents through a TV show on the E! network.
""Kim and Kanye are an incredibly dynamic couple, and their baby news is just so exciting," E! Entertainment network president Suzanne Kolb said.
"Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger. We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottles and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear."
Following Kardashian's announcement of her pregnancy on Twitter, the social media site had a field day reacting to the news. Here are some of the best celebrity reactions:
