Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting ready to play house in a big way.

The expectant parents have purchased a Bel Air, Calif., mansion for $11 million, WHO has confirmed after the real estate deal was first reported by TMZ.

"It's so exciting for them," says a source. "The house is gorgeous. And they really wanted and needed the privacy."

The Italian-style villa will include a gym, movie theater, hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court and indoor and outdoor pools.

Their joint purchase opens with a grand, two-story entrance with black walnut parquet floors and leads to a living room with cathedral-height ceilings and stone fireplace. A gourmet custom kitchen opens to the back yard, which holds an outdoor living area with a barbecue. The master suite has an enormous bath, a closet big enough for the fashion-loving pair, a sitting area and balcony.

We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mom and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us," she wrote. "Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!!! Xo."
