It hasn’t even been a week since Beyonce and Jay-Z broke the news that they’re expecting, and it looks like the little one may already have a godfather.

Jay’s Watch the Throne bandmate and close friend, Kanye West, is overjoyed by the baby news and tells friends he’ll have the much coveted honor when the child is born, reports The Sun.

“He’s been saying he’s going to be godfather and is absolutely thrilled,” a source tells the newspaper. “It will be a huge honor for him.”
