The first London gig and a Paris date were initially revealed on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show.

An extra date at Hammersmith is now on sale (23 February) after the first night sold out.

Back in December, the rapper announced on stage that his girlfriend, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, is expecting their baby.

He told the crowd of more than 5,000 people at a gig at Atlantic City on 30 December, last year, by singing: "Now you having my baby."
