Kanye West’s Engagement Gift To Kim Kardashian — His Private, Romantic Present
Kanye, 36, made men everywhere look bad with his lavish, over-the-top proposal to Kim!
“Mr. West was extremely meticulous with the planning of his engagement to Kim. He wanted everything to be beyond perfect,” a source with ties to AT&T Park tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“He also had specific instructions for home plate. He wanted us to change it out and make one with him and Kim’s picture on it with a gold frame around it,” the source adds. “Gratefully, there’s a lot of talented people here and that was done. He wanted it on the field during their ceremony but it was removed afterwards and went with them.”
What a sweet souvenir! While Kanye didn’t say what the home plate was supposed to symbolize, our source guesses that “Kanye’s thoughts are that he’s won and one with Kim.” How romantic!
Kanye West’s Proposal To Kim Kardashian Was ‘Incredible’ — Source Says
Kanye’s hard work paid off — his proposal on Kim’s 33rd birthday was picture perfect! He “personally invited” all of Kim’s friends and family, about 50 people, and made them promise to keep the event a secret, a source tells Us Weekly.
Kanye asked Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner, for permission for her daughter’s hand in marriage beforehand, but no one else “was told he’d be proposing in advance,” a source adds.
Kanye flew Kim to San Francisco and a car drove them to the stadium. When they arrived, Kim was blindfolded and all of the lights were out at the stadium. “It was completely dark. Kim had no idea that any of her friends and family were there,” another insider says.
While a 50-piece orchestra played, Kanye “got down on one knee and the lights came on. It was perfectly choreographed. It was incredible,” the insider adds.
Kanye presented his bride-to-be with a flawless 15-carat diamond from jeweler and close family friend Lorraine Schwartz. In case anyone missed the proposal, all they had to do was look up! The stadium’s jumbotron read,”PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” and fireworks and Roman candles exploded in the sky to finish off the celebration. Now that’s how it’s done!
We’re so excited for this adorable family of three. How about you, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Kanye’s home plate gift to Kim was romantic? Let us know!
