Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Finally Engaged
Kim Kardashian finally has an engagement ring on her finger, and as you’d expect, it’s no small ring. Kanye West, her long-time boyfriend and father of baby daughter, North, popped the big question on October 21, Kim’s 33rd birthday, at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
He got down on one knee as he offered Kim a 15-carat diamond ring he had purchased from celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. Kanye flashed the message “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” on the jumbo stadium screen in front of family and friends.
The proposal was accompanied by a 50 piece orchestra that played Lana Del Rey’s Young and Beautiful followed by Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo, and Kanye’s Knock you Down. Kim accepted and was quick to show off her new bling and a genuine smile. Her hair stylist, Clyde Haygood, snapped a shot and shared it on Instagram.
Kim’s sister Khloe was there tweeting away. Tweets included things like “Wow!!! Am I dreaming??!?!” and “Tearsof JOY!!!!!!”
Fans have been waiting for this day. Kim and Kanye have been dating since April of 2012, and back in February, a pregnant Kim had told Cosmopolitan that marriage was something they both wanted in their future, “but I don’t have this sense of urgency about it,” she said.
Then their daughter, North, arrived in June, and now the ring. This will be Kardashian’s third marriage. She divorced her first husband, music producer Damon Thomas, back in June, 2003.Â Her last marriage to Kris Humphries lasted just 72 days. This will be Kanye’s first marriage.
At this time no date has been announced.
