Kanye West + Kim Kardashian Are Engaged
Kimye are gettin’ hitched!
Kim Kardashian‘s last marriage, to NBA player Kris Humphries, lasted all of 72 days but that hasn’t soured her romantic spirit or her belief in marriage as an institution. The reality star is now engaged to rapper Kanye West, father of her daughter North, born in June.
It’s not surprising, since these two kids, who have been dating since early 2012, seem so happy and have already started their family! The engagement feels like a formality at this point, since the couple is so firmly committed.
Yeezy popped the question in a super sweet way, too.
E! reports that the controversial rapper and fashion designer apparently asked Kim for her hand in marriage in front of friends and family at AT&T Park in San Francisco last night (Oct. 21). It was also Kim’s 33rd birthday, so she got quite the present from her man, who is currently on tour.
He was not playing a gig at the venue, but he reportedly rented it out so that he could pop the question.
“He projected ‘Pleeese marry meee!!!’ onto the stadium screen for everyone to see,” reports Us Weekly. Can we get an “Aw?”
As for the ring, it’s 15 carats (!!!), which is actually slightly smaller than her previous engagement ring. It is however, by the same designer, Lorraine Schwartz.
When West appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ a few weeks ago, he talked about the media’s criticisms of “my girl” and how much he loved Kardashian, despite people questioning his relationship with her since she is on reality TV.
Kardashian has laid low since giving birth, choosing to let West reveal photos of the baby on her mother Kris Jenner’s now-canceled talk show and sharing them on social media, as opposed to accepting millions from a glossy mag for first rights to pics of the little girl, which most people expected her to do.
So we’re going to assume that when she and West swap vows, it won’t be the subject of a media frenzy and a TV special like it was last time.
This will be the first marriage for West and the third for Kardashian, who was also briefly wed to music producer Damon Thomas.
Congrats to the couple and little North West on this exciting and happy news!
