Rapper Kanye West is confident that music superstars Beyoncé and Jay-Z will ask him to be godfather to their baby

After collaborating with Jay-Z for their new album Watch The Throne, Kanye has convinced himself that he will ask him to be guardian to their first tot.

A source told The Sun: "Kanye is as excited about the baby as Beyoncé and Jay-Z. He's been saying he's going to be godfather and is absolutely chuffed. It will be a huge honour for him."

Beyoncé announced she's pregnant at the MTV VMAs last weekend, the same event that Kanye famously stormed the stage at after she missed out on an award to Taylor Swift in 2009.
